I know based on this year's Defense that seems like a stupid question, but coming in VG seemed like an awesome hire and I wonder if Chizik was just holding him back - see Ted Roof at Penn State this year and Malzahn's 2011 offense.
Personally, I don't think BVG should be judged by his performance last year, but it's all up to GM. I'm sure he knows more about the situation that took place last year than we do.
I just hope he's able to hire the best coaches who are a good fit with his overall philosophy and style. One thing is for sure, I hope we have some coaches who will teach our players how to block and tackle properly. I'm no coach but its been clear for several years that our team has not been fundamentally sound which I can only attribute to someone allowing players to either not learn the skills or get away with playing sloppily. I hope that CGM and his staff teach those fundamentals well and make it crystal clear that every player must use sound fundamental techniques on every play.
This may sound silly but we've all seen our defense seem to get worse instead of improving. The legendary Coach Wooden at UCLA's first lesson to new players was how to put on their socks. Why? Because if they put them on improperly they would get blisters, etc. and then miss practice time. Their feet were one of the key components to playing well. He didn't take anything for granted, payed attention to details and taught fundamental skills and, oh yeah, won about 14 national championships. If our team can't block and tackle they can't win.
