    I was happy when he was hired. I knew he had a project in front of him. That being said, he has completely s*** the bed. The team is full of four and five-star players, and it’s a dumpster fire.

    I have no confidence in him anymore, either. This losing streak to end the season (there’s no chance in Hell we beat either BC or Florida, after all) is going to just destroy recruiting. Get ready for five years (possibly more) of sheer futility.

    Willie definitely underachieved. There was plenty of talent, except at OL and LB, and Willie could have changed the culture before the season. A lot of first year coaches had that challenge. Even the OL and LB group had highly recruited guys. There’s no excuse for not being able to line up, false starts, and stupid unsportsman like conduct penalties. Willie choosing to start Francois, and doubling down on that after NC State, was a bad idea. I know Willie was worried Francois would leave, but it was dumb to worry about that, and to worry about Blackman having eligibility 3 years from now.

    Willie is also responsible for Hampton, who did an incredibly bad job as Special Teams coach.

    All that said, Willie was the right hire under the circumstances. He isn’t going anywhere for another season, so I will judge him based on the changes he makes.

    Willie handed play calling to Bell. and we saw a lot less east-west, which was good. Hampton was reportedly pushed out with a few games left, which was good.

    We need to see how Willie recruits, and see what changes are made to the coaching staff. I’ll do a separate post about players and 2019.
