    I see he turned down USC(w) for the OL job. Do you think he'll come here because he is a Hokie?

    no significant recruiting experience at a BCS level program. his previous college experience was with the university of san diego (not san diego state). at least grimes had national recruiting experience at a BCS program to offset the fact that he didn't have regional connections/networking. washington has neither.

    other than his VT ties and some pro level experience, he doesn't really come across as a great hire. he could end up being a good one but it's a significant risk on the recruiting side of things.
    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    It is, but I think he could do the job. USC offered him. LSU was very interested.

    That said, he already turned down a very lucrative offer from USC.

    Not only is he a Hokie, he's a Hokie from back when our offensive linemen blocked people with regularity. A homecoming of sorts, puff him up with a nice title (assoc/asst/Exec HC), and get him in here. He may not have much recruiting experience, but he knows the territory, will relate well to kids (especially those that think they can play in the league some day), and knows how to freakin block and teach blocking.

    but if he wears his 2 Super Bowl rings into a kids' house, that could shorten his recruiting learning curve!

    In that case, I wouldn't put too much thought into getting him. Unlikely it happens.

    At this point, I'm expecting VT to do what VT always does and promote from within. Bryan Stinespring will be our next OL coach.

    Stiney was Todd's OL coach at VT. I wonder if they had/have a good relationship? If so, maybe Stiney can use his recruiting skills to try and get Todd to come back to Blacksburg.

    yea, i'd have no problem with his coaching potential, his ability to get the line to play hard, or evaluate talent. two super bowl rings helps recruiting for sure. maybe it doesn't resonate with me because i don't see it as actually possible.
