Likens is basically a WR coach and we have a roster full of Sun Imps that need top notch QB coaching. Some are pocket passers, some are dual threat QBs. Somebody is going to need drastic retooling.

In 2018, the offense was a hodge podge of Manny trained to run the TG Texas HS triple option, the Herm Edwards 1970 NFL playbook and the Likens version of the spread offense. When Likens would switch chapters in the playbook, it was easy to see the offense lose momentum and Manny was never coached to make many of the reads and passes.

So now we need to focus the offense. Select an offensive strategy. Develop a new playbook. Coach up the Sun Imp QBs, the line and the receivers around the new offense. I am not sure that Likens is the guy. I would prefer a QB guru that can bring his system to the coaching team and teach the QBs the fine points of the position. Maybe move Likens to WR coach.
