UMass: Brown goes the familiar route in appointing Casula and Dudzinski coordinators

December 21, 2021

Surrounding yourself with the right people is important when turning a program around. Especially a program like UMass, which has really struggled in recent years. It is why Don Brown had to hire coaches he knows and trusts. Especially at the coordinator positions. Brown hired two coordinators that he has a history with. That is not unusual by the way. That is how it works in football. He worked with…

Recruiting: What I look for as a coach in recruits

December 16, 2021

In college football the margin between winning and losing is often miniscule. Many games are won and lost based on a handful of plays.
