1) Any info on Stacy Searels regarding his fit with the coaches and players?

Chris Coleman: Stacy Searels is a great fit for Frank Beamer, and he’s a great fit with the rest of the offensive coaching staff.  He worked well with Mack Brown at Texas, and Beamer really respects Mack Brown.  It’s only natural that Searels would be a good fit for Beamer’s staff as well.

I liked Jeff Grimes a lot.  I think he’s a good coach.  But I’ll admit that I think Searels is a better fit, and I also prefer his coaching style.  Grimes could certainly yell and be intense when needed, and he really did look the part of an offensive line coach.  However, Searels is intense all the time.  Every moment spent with him on the practice field is intense.
