Yep, had Chip Lindsey post last night. It might make sense, since there will be a number of these rumors, confirmations, etc, pinned like we do the recruiting? What do you think Konza, HawkErrant?

I like the idea, but opt to let Kong decide, since it’s his topic and TTBOMK despite his infrequent appearances he’s still the third leg of our moderator trio.B)

Sticky works for me. Might be a good way to keep track of the new staff. HE, please feel free to edit the Staff's titles as I just roughed in a set with the understanding that it would be crafted to Miles desire combining different functions as he saw fit.

Here's my quick take on Eliot:

Pro's
* Power 5 Conference Experience: Miami (ACC), Florida State (ACC), Kentucky (SEC), and Colorado (PAC 12)
* Strong ties to Big 12 geography. Born and raised in Oklahoma. Coached at Tulsa, Rice, and Texas State.
* Worked under good coaches: Mark Stoop and Jimbo Fisher
* Developed a number of NFL players
* Helped turn around a team with a losing record (Kentucky) in a ultra-competitive conference

Con's
* Switched jobs frequently. Four teams in the last ten years.
* Overall record as Defensive Coordinator: 19-30 at UofK, 10-14 at CU. Total 29-44.

This kind of slipped off the radar a bit, but it looks like Zac Woodfin is staying on as Strength and Conditioning Coach (?).

A shame. I hate that he just got here and then left. It has to make the next person wonder why.
