Can he be innovative?
If Rob Chudzinski is the hire, then I hope he’s studied spread concepts since his NFL days, otherwise it would be a step-backwards to return to an old school pro style offense when Miami finally got with the times.
Nick Saban brought in different coaches to get Bama’s offense up to speed.. When Coach O brought in Joe Brady to update LSU offense they went nuclear. Heck Andy Reid is one of the most creative offensive minds in football and he’s studied and included spread concepts into his west coast offense.
So if Chudzinski doesn’t have some form of spread in mind then he shouldn’t be the hire.
Great canes show
Thanks for the episode always gotta listen
Pretty good Miami Hurricanes podcast
Great podcast but need to figure out a better way to plug in their advertisements without being overbearing. I understand Manscape is a sponsor but please... I don’t want to hear any more about your ball shaving experiences!
I do enjoy your take on the Hurricanes though!
