    Hmm... This turnover so late in the game is kinda nerve racking.

    What position did Groh accept?

    Napier was recruiting coordinator for FSU. That makes two new assistants that can recruit the state of Florida. Love that.

    I do know CMG almost eliminated the "dropped ball" syndrome from the WR corps.

    I hate hate hate losing Coach Groh I was a big fan of his. One hell of a coach! Look how awesome our WRcorps was this year. It's not just all the talent. That talent was developed by coach Groh.

    Oth the recruiting coordinator from fsu?! They've been really hot on the recruiting trail. That can't hurt at all. I hope he can coach though like Groh though.

    If they got a replacement this fast you have to think it was expected.

    Late in what game? This time of year is pretty much the perfect time to have coaching changes.

    Just seems like the turnover usually happens right after the season is over.

    But that can affect recruiting i.e. Pruitt.

    Yeah, I'm glad it is happening now because of that. I guess I'm worried because spring training is right around the corner.

    Agreed. Much better for them to leave after recruiting is over and prior to spring practice. I liked Groh a lot but our coaches moving on to bigger and better things is inevitable. This is why Saban always fills the vacated positions with very good coaches and recruiters because they want to get the "Saban education" and then they move on to bigger and better things. It is a beautiful cycle.

    We're not getting some big Florida recruiter. Napier had only been at FSU for a month. He spent last season working for CJMcE at Colorado State.

    Seems Napier's background is primarily as a quarterbacks coach. I started to question why you would hire him to coach the receivers. Then I reminded myself CNS knows how to do his job better than anyone else can tell him how to do it.

    I'm still bummed about losing CMG, the 2013 Recruiter of the Year.

    Napier is a former recruiter of the year himself.
