    Did Clancy ever coach linebackers ?

    That is what Davis is good at.

    He just got fired from Ohio State because he couldn’t coach their 4 & 5 star linebackers.

    The only reason why he was hired was because he was one of Urban Meyer’s best friends. (He was Urban’s best man at his wedding).

    The only credit I’ll give the man is that he must be really friendly since a bunch of his friends keep giving him jobs.

    He’s been fired 3 times in the NFL (49ers, Cardinals, Eagles) and once at the college level.

    I would say he has to know something about defense... how the hell could he attack a defense if he knows nothing about a defense :)

    LOL, he knows how to do that. He doesn't know how to run a defense. Needs plenty of help from experienced defensive coaches. Hopefully the guys they are hiring will do a good job.

    I believe Bruce Arians has been fired 9 times (at the college and NFL level). He is the best HC we have ever had.

    BA had never been a real HC in the NFL before coming here. His success with the Colts made him an easy hire. It’s very rare that you get an opportunity to hire the NFL Coach of the Year from the previous season.

    Tell me, where has Bill Davis had success?

    I am not a Bill Davis fan...just saying that every coach gets fired (probably multiple times).

    I understand that and I probably shouldn’t have included his firings in my post.

    The only thing I could think of is interviewing for a job.

    It is more justifiable to worry about head coach K2's credentials than a positional coach with vast (good or bad) NFL experience.

    Bill Davis is fine for a position coach. He's not the DC.

    Exactly. I like KK bringing in experience on the defensive side. Let’s not give too much credit or blame to a LB coach

    This is what I was hoping. I only know about Davis as our DC. When Horton was replaced with Bowles I said there is so much talent on D that we really dont know how good Horton was....only how bad Davis was.

    If he was hired as DC I would be flipping out. Willing to wait and see as LB coach. It is actually reassuring to hear you say he is good there.

    I for one appreciate your insight on this board. You've been a welcome addition imo.
