Rockstars?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I’ve said this already and I really think we are going to end up with Anthony Lynn as OC.  Not a rockstar. Not a good hire. But he was just fired from the Lions and has head coaching experience. Probably one of the only guys who will take the job only because he knows he could be the head coach by week 8. 
 

what’s really going to be interesting is to see if people start turning Rhule down.

uhh Mike Groh is pretty legit... He was a part of the Eagles SB winning team 
 

Groh enters his second season with the Colts as the team's wide receivers coach. He has 21 years of coaching experience, including nine seasons in the NFL. Groh helped Indianapolis reach the playoffs in 2020 with an 11-5 regular season record.

In 2020, Groh worked with a receiving group headlined by T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. Hilton caught 56 passes for a team-high 762 yards and five touchdowns. He became the fourth player in franchise history to hit 9,000 career receiving yards (9,360) and the sixth player to reach 9,000 career scrimmage yards (9,415). Pascal registered career highs in receptions (44) and receiving yards (629) while tying his career-high in touchdown receptions (five). Pittman Jr. finished his debut season with 40 receptions for 503 yards and one touchdown. Among rookies, he ranked 10th in receiving yards.

Prior to Indianapolis, Groh spent three years with the Philadelphia Eagles, most recently serving as the offensive coordinator for two seasons (2018-19). The Eagles made the playoffs in each of his three seasons in Philadelphia, including winning Super Bowl LII.

In 2019, the Eagles ranked fourth in the NFL in total first downs (354), fourth in third down percentage (45.4 percent), third in red zone offense (66.7 percent), second in goal to go percentage (87.5 percent) and second in average time of possession (32:56). Quarterback Carson Wentz completed 388-of-607 passes for 4,039 yards with 27 touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 93.1 passer rating. He set single-season franchise records for completions and passing yards. Wentz was the only quarterback in the NFL to throw a touchdown pass in all 16 regular season games in 2019. Running back Miles Sanders led all NFL rookies in scrimmage yards (1,327) and led all rookie running backs in receptions (50), receiving yards (509) and receiving touchdowns (three). He also set the Eagles rookie record for rushing yards (818). Among NFL tight ends, Zach Ertz ranked third in receptions (88), fourth in receiving yards (916) and tied for fourth in receiving touchdowns (six) in 2019. Tight end Dallas Goedert finished with career highs in receptions (58), receiving yards (607) and receiving touchdowns (five). Goedert ranked ninth in receptions, 10th in receiving yards and tied for seventh in receiving touchdowns among NFL tight ends. The Eagles became the seventh team in NFL history to have two tight ends compile 50 catches in the same season.

In his first season as offensive coordinator, Groh helped Philadelphia finish with the league's seventh-ranked passing offense (267.2 yards per game). Wentz completed 279-of-401 passes for 3,074 yards with 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions for a 102.2 passer rating. He ranked third in the NFL with a team-record 69.6 completion percentage. Ertz had a career year as he caught 116 passes for 1,163 yards and eight touchdowns. He set the league record for receptions by a tight end in a single season.

Groh originally joined the Eagles in 2017 as wide receivers coach and was part of the Super Bowl LII championship team. He worked with a receivers room that was led by Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery. Agholor caught 62 passes for 768 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. Jeffery finished with 57 receptions for 789 yards and nine touchdowns. Philadelphia was the only team with two wide receivers that produced eight-or-more receiving touchdowns in 2017.

In 2016, Groh was the passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach for the Los Angeles Rams. He guided wide receiver Kenny Britt to his first career 1,000-yard receiving season as he compiled career highs in receptions (68), receiving yards (1,002) and receiving touchdowns (five). Britt became the first Rams wideout to register a 1,000-yard receiving season since 2007.

Groh served as the wide receivers coach for the Chicago Bears for three seasons (2013-15) and worked with Pro Bowlers Brandon Marshall and Jeffery. The Bears had three 1,000-yard receiving seasons under Groh with Jeffery hitting the mark in 2013 (1,421) and 2014 (1,133) and Marshall accomplishing the feat in 2013 (1,295). Over Groh's three seasons in Chicago, Jeffery recorded the ninth-most receiving yards (3,361) in the NFL. In 2013, Jeffery set the franchise record for receiving yards in a game on two separate occasions (218 yards vs. New Orleans 10/6/13; 249 yards at Minnesota 12/1/13). He became the only player in Bears history to amass multiple 200-yard receiving games, in addition to becoming the eighth player in NFL history to have two 200-yard receiving games in the same season.

Prior to Chicago, Groh won back-to-back national championships at Alabama in 2011-12 as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator. He also won a national championship with the Crimson Tide in 2009 while serving as an offensive graduate assistant. In between his stints at Alabama, Groh was the quarterbacks coach at Louisville in 2010.

From 2001-08, Groh coached at his alma mater, Virginia. He served in a variety of roles, including offensive coordinator (2006-08), wide receivers/quarterbacks/recruiting coordinator (2005), wide receivers/quarterbacks (2003-04) and wide receivers (2001-02).

Groh is the son of Al Groh, a former head coach of the New York Jets and a longtime NFL assistant. Mike began his coaching career on his father's staff in New York in 2000, serving as an offensive assistant/quality control coach for the Jets.

So 3 guys who have recently been fired from their previous OC jobs...Pep still has the most going for him, coaching up Herbert and Davis Mills in back to back seasons, good records with the Colts when Luck was healthy which means he at least didn't screw things up.

As receivers coach.

He was promoted to OC after Reich left but wound up fired after two seasons. Those two seasons are his only experience as an OC.

I do remember his dad at UVA.

I do like the Kubiak system. I just hope Klint can run it as well as good dad did.

Besides the name he's a 34 year old still learning on the job, probably a sideways move from Joe Brady and would not make a good interim head coach yet.

It's looking exactly as feared. Who wants to bet Brady ends up looking better than whoever we hire for OC?

"Finalists" LOL. Rhule is such a dick. I guess it's one of these guys or Pep. What kind of questions do you think Rhule even asks?
