Tim Beck & Shawn Watson named as worst football coordinator hires

Recommended Posts


By Pat Forde



4 best college football coordinator hires of 2017 (and the 5 worst)


Shawn Watson (17), Pittsburgh. Watson did not inherit an easy situation, with running back James Conner and quarterback Nathan Peterman graduating. But still, post-Matt Canada drop-off has been pronounced. Scoring is down 16 points per game, and overall offensive production is on pace for its lowest levels since 2011 — and that’s with the Atlantic Coast Conference’s No. 1 (Virginia Tech) and No. 3 (Miami) scoring defenses left on the schedule.

Tim Beck (18), Texas. Beck was pushed out at Ohio State after the Buckeyes’ passing game ground to a halt in 2016 and rejoined former colleague Tom Herman in Austin. Results have not been great. The only Big 12 team with a lower pass-efficiency rating or averaging fewer yards per play than the Longhorns is Kansas, which only marginally counts as a conference colleague. Texas has averaged 3.2 yards or fewer per running play in six of 10 games this season, and the passing attack hasn’t been productive enough to pick up that slack.

    • Agreed, I’m not one of the okie thunder fans hat hate him because he left but a lot of curry has rubbed off on him. I was very pleased to see Westbrook not take his shit last night. Guy is a baller. The big 3 at warriors are pathetic role models. Green Shoulda already been kicked out of the NBA for his actions and Durant is following his lead. 
    • I’m gonna go out on a limb and say if we don’t get Waddle UT will still be mighty fine in that position for years to come. WR is stacked and this recruiting class seems to not be any different 
    • I was at the game myself last night. What stuck out to me more was how bad ou was based on previous years I've seen them. I was watching some of the game last night when I got home and I listened to the announcers talk about the top 4 seeding for the playoffs. It amazes me that there is a chance Texas could finish 5th and out of the Top 4. Guess we'll find out for sure on Sunday.
    • Jackson and Bell’s hudl links for those interested.  https://www.hudl.com/video/3/5310807/59ffd94702bc3413fc356ab4 https://www.hudl.com/video/3/5284010/59bffdde02bbbd11484ac812
    • Probably a contingency plan, but he had a very strong senior year and if he ends up at UTSA it will be a steal for the Road Runners.
