That would mean Pruitt is losing Tracy Rocker (and I don't see him being pushed out,) or he's replacing one of his two DC's: Sherrer or Rumph.
I have a hard time seeing that happening unless one of the three has a great offer at another school and leaves. There's no room on the staff right now for any position that Lance has coached in the past.
Sherrer has a year with DB's at South Alabama so I supposed they could move him from ILB's to the defensive backfield. Rumph worked with DB's at a directional school as well several years ago.
There's certainly reason—aside from what 12gage posted—to doubt his "sauces."
Feldman also thinks Harrell is the best QB to come out of the Leach Air-Raid system. It's interesting to me that all indications say USC is going to the Air-Raid whether fans like it or not. It was a swing and a miss on Kingsbury, and now they've moved on to Harrell.
The last two seasons North Texas has had top 25 offenses.
The last two decades have us looking for an Air-Raid system that features a defense...
10 Highest paid offensive line coaches........Football Scoop doing work...
As part of a new series, FootballScoop is examining the 10 highest-paid position coaches across college football. We’ll start with offensive line coaches, the general contractors of the football world. As you’ll see below, when you’ve got a guy who knows how to make their offensive architect’s pie-in-the-sky dreams work in reality, you’ll pay whatever it takes to make him happy.

2. Will Friend, Tennessee — $805,000
3. Joe Rudolph, Wisconsin^ — $720,000
4. Greg Frey, Florida State — $675,000

@JoseyWalesTheOutlaw, as I recall Brent Key was bumped to almost 500K after spring camp last year. What's crazy is Cochran is about 15K less than that of Wolford at UofSC. I want to say he was getting a raise of 50K last spring and he's up to 585K per year now.
Behold, the latest in a series examining the biggest salaries for position coaches across major college football. Information courtesy of the USA Todaycoaching salary database and based on publicly available contracts.

— The emphasis of this exercise is to study position coaches, not coordinators. That said, it bears mentioning that South Carolina’s Travaris Robinson ($1.2 million) is technically the highest-paid defensive backs coach in the country. We’re trying to find the price point for coaches whose primary responsibility is to coach cornerbacks and safeties, not call plays.
— Yet again, Alabama and Ohio State are nowhere to be found. The Buckeyes actually led this list in 2018 with Alex Grinch’s $1.158 million salary, and new hires Jeff Hafley and Matt Barnes have yet to have their salaries revealed. Alabama defensive backs coach Karl Scott, on the other hand, remains employed but nowhere close to the top 10 at just — “just” — $350,000 a year. No one coaching football for a living at the Power 5 level is underpaid, but if they were, Scott would have to be among the most underpaid coaches in the sport.
