    Tennessee hiring I believe was the worst, they needed a Offensive coach to help Marriota. Also not impressed with Arizona choice. Shurmur was also a reach by Giants but will hold off giving it a thumbs down because Gettelman is a pretty sharp guy.

    So NO ONE interviewed the media darling Dave Toub? Does he even exist, or is he like a Sid Finch for the digital era.
