Another day, another coaching staff update. Or open thread. Or....something.
Mark Richt officially announces 4 assistants: Thomas Brown, Todd Hartley, Craig Kuligowski, and Jon Richt.
hahahaha everything is hilarious right now
Footballscoop.com is reporting that Purdue may hire Mark D'Onofrio as their defensive coordinator.
So, Purdue reportedly has their new DL coach…hear DC might be coming from same place (not confirmed yet though) https://t.co/sNnVtycOD5— FootballScoop Staff (@FootballScoop) December 30, 2015
They say, however, the nothing is certain at this point.
EITHER WAY, that news got me like
OMG I can't stop laughing.
More later if it's available.
Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald wrote a piece with some updates. Big points:
- Most coaches know they will not be retained
- Larry Scott still a possibility to be retained, but decision not made as of today
- Kevin Beard set to interview with Richt for a spot on the staff

...And still, we wait
So, it's been a few days since we heard anything. As I said yesterday, we know 3 staff members: Thomas Brown, Todd Hartley, and Craig Kuligowski.
I know I said I wanted to be patient with Mark Richt and let him build the staff he wants (that's the smart idea), but I also just WANT TO KNOW WHO OUR COACHES ARE GOING TO BE. UGHHHHH
While we wait (and how long that'll be, I don't know), here are coaching profiles for your viewing pleasure
That's it for now. More if it becomes available today (man, I hope it does).
