He has never been OC, but his OL coaching ability is very high, and he has also helped coach some amazing RBs at LSU over the past 4 years.

He was reportedly offered the position of OL coach at BYU two years ago, but BYU couldn't match his $550,000 salary.

I really like the hire. Grimes is a tough, hard nosed coach. He won't allow the rest of the coaching staff to let their kids party all day long and skip practices.

Wow, I hope this is true. If it is, the offense will not look like a bunch of pansies out there anymore. Now all we need to do is get the defense to play tough too.

Now all we need to do is to get rid of the running back coach, the WR coach and keep Ty Detmer as the QB coach. My assumption is that he will be in charge of the Oline so that leaves Empey without a job.

Man, is this a done deal? if it is, what a great hire. I think it will go well with what Ty was trying to do. I'm hoping the two of them can help each other and get the offense really moving again.

Sounds like Empey and Clark will stay on as OL and TE coaches. Detmer is gone. QB and WRs will likely be filled from the pool of Paul Peterson, Roderick, Fesi Sitake. Mahe/RBs remain a question mark.

Could be very good!
