This staff has had an exceptionally high turnover. But I trust Edwards to continue to come up with quality replacements.

With that being said, every change presents challenges to overcome. I just hope that all the pieces fit. In this case, this is the 6th line coach in the last 6 years. That is a lot of technique and scheme changes. This hire suggests a change from a 3 to a 4 man line. Quality players that made the 3-3-5 gadget defense work must now find new homes in some variation of a 4 man line. That means new techniques, new reads, new instincts. And the coaches now come from different defensive philosophies. They too must bond into a cohesive defensive staff.
I like the coaches. I like the players. I hope they can all unite so that the whole becomes greater than the parts.
Also, Cain was one of the top recruiters in the conference. Will his replacement be just as effective? I hope so, but I do not know anything about his past recruiting experience.
