I like the thought of Rod Rust being hired to be our new Defensive Coordinator, but his age is cause for alarm. When he became ill 2 years ago halfway through the season, the Bombers D fell apart. I'd hate to see that happen to our D if Rust suddenly got sick. (I know this sounds like "age-prejudice," and I know that a yonger man can suddenly get health problems too, but age, in this circumstance, is a serious issue).
So who are some other candidiates for D-Coordinator? Does anyone know of any college D-Coordinators Taaffe has worked with over his career who he might look to?
