It seems as if CCS has found his new replacement for former QB's coach Mike Groh, And a good one at that. Former Nebraska OC and QB coach Shawn Watson is expected to be announced in the next couple of days. Watson brings something that Groh didn't and thats a ton of experience which should really benefit Teddy B. Heres a look at Watsons track record :
1982, Southern Illinois (graduate assistant coach); 1983-84, Illinois (graduate assistant coach); 1985, Illinois (assistant coach/tight ends and offensive tackles); 1986, Illinois (assistant coach/wide receivers); 1987-89, Miami (Ohio) University (assistant coach/tight ends); 1990-93, Miami (assistant coach/quarterbacks, recruiting coordinator); 1994-96, Southern Illinois (head coach); 1997-98, Northwestern (assistant coach/quarterbacks); 1999, Colorado (assistant coach/quarterbacks); 2000-2005, Colorado (assistant coach/offensive coordinator, quarterbacks); 2006, Nebraska (assistant coach/tight ends, recruiting coordinator); 2007-10, Nebraska (assistant coach/offensive coordinator, quarterbacks) .
This now gives CCS two coaches on the offensive side of the ball with head coaching experience. Watson took alot of heat for Nebraska's late season offensive struggles but make no mistake this would be a hell of a hire for CCS. This is a guy that was recently in strong consideration for head coaching jobs at Vanderbilt and Miami ( OH) and also turned down the Alabama OC job in 2008. Welcome aboard coach Watson.
