You understand that a Quality control coaches primary job is to go through hours and hours of opponents game film and strip out the footage that the HC and coordinaters need to look at. It is where many young men start out in college or NFL coaching. Several good college and pro coaches have been through that job. You will not find many experienced coaches doing this job.

another college coach..a 1AA college coach?..
Check around the league, look at the other teams Quality coaches, and you'll see that this is the norm.

Mike Holmgren used to teach in High School. I'm not saying, I'm just saying.

Exactly Cush! It's not like the DQC coach is a "higher-up" position.
