Can't fault the man for taking advantage of an opportunity. Good for him, and I hope he meets with success in Memphis. Go for it. His departure means an opportunity for someone else here.

Well Jim Zorn was supposedly real smart too when he was hired as head coach

Secondary, special teams.. They both begin with an "S." That's what I get for posting at 2am. Kinda like the way I gushed over the Russ Grimm post in the coach thread. GMScud posting at 2am = fail.

If the staff is going get the overhaul it needs (except possibly Blache), then good for him securing a job ahead of time, especially a HC job. I'll root for him to succeed.

I don't know. I don't see NFL DC when I think of him. The college ranks will be good for him. If he does well for a few years then maybe he will get a chance.

re: Update: Jerry Gray Not Taking Memphis Job

Man I was hoping that he could take over the defense next year. I have posted this numerous times that the reason why the defense is so successful, because the defense we run is Williams defense with a few Blache wrinkles. The structure stability on defense allows them to add players and lose players and continues to be a top ten defense. I wish we could keep the defense the way they are next year.

He is taking over a woeful Memphis team - - probably could not crack the Top 100 in college football this year if such a ranking existed. I hope the alums and the administration at Memphis give him a few years to work a turnaround there. He has LOADS of work to do.


Good luck, Coach...
Well the way we hire and fire coaches Jerry Gray could end up back here in 2-3 years as our Head Coach.

What so we can have more ten yard cushions for the DBs? I don't think so. As Bang said on the other board, I will gladly drive him to airport to see those 10 yards cushions vanish.

Re: Jerry Gray is leaving!

Could it be...could it be he's staying and...umm...being considered for head coach? I think he has to at least interview for it.

This is going off topic a bit, but I wonder if any former and/or current black head coaches got in Gray's ear about staying on board and throwing his name in the hat to become the Skins first black head coach?
