1) Does entertaining visiting recruits take away from game prep on Friday night or Saturday? Do you think the new hires for football support staff help in this regard compared to previous years?

Chris Coleman: No, it doesn’t. Gameplanning begins on Mondays, and the gameplan is installed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during practice. Friday’s practice is basically a light walk-through. All the preparation for the weekend’s game has been made earlier in the week. If a team is still prepping on Friday, then they are probably in trouble. At that point all you can do is walk-throughs to go over what you practiced at full speed earlier in the week.

I think the new hires for football recruiting will certainly help on gamedays, and they help during the week as well. They can plan visits, set up meals, set up meetings with academic advisers, etc. These are all things the regular coaching staff had to take care of in the past. In short, the new guys take care of the little things on gameday, and they help the regular staff be more prepared when the real recruiting takes place.

Sorry that’s such a short answer, but stay tuned. I hope to have much more detail on the new recruiting staff in the coming weeks, once I get some more information.
