Not being much of an Auburn insider, I was kind of surprised at the fact that Roof "was not running his defense" at Auburn. My questions to you are as follows:
1. Is this typical in most colleges? Does the head coach typically dabble in their strengths, be it offense or defense?
2. Do you think this will continue in the future? If it does, does it really matter who we bring in as DC if their overall style of play is dictated?
3. Why would a coach hire someone who he fundamentally disagreed with as far as scheme, play style, etc.?
Thanks for your insight!
I will have to disagree on #1, I can't imagine Saban not dabbling in his D, same with Muschamp, Bob Stoops, Pellini, or Petrino or Gundy not dabbling in the O. Any coach, or boss for that matter, who gets to where he is on a certain strength is always going to dabble in that strength. Maybe Chiz and Roof weren't singing the same song, but the boss gets to choose the song. And Chiz has a pretty stong history of picking good songs.

From the way these post read sounds like a few people are saying CGC tried to hurt his own defense. We don't know what CGC an TR was trying to do together. Every time AU goes through a coaching change it must have been a problem between the head coach?? Could it be the defense didn't work out how CGC and TR envisioned it?
I think Coach Chizik probably liked Roof's defensive philosophy and agreed with it 100%. In my opinion it was more of the "play calling" that caught up with Coach Roof. Just sayin
it's all good
