Colts Interview Butch Davis

Recommended Posts

I'd be ok with that. He was the Cowboys DC during their dynasty years wasn't he? And a former Hurricanes HC lol.

He was a part of the team that was riddled with allegations, suspensions, inappropriate conduct, etc. No ties I can think of have him directly related, but he was fired before this last season.

History of success, and guys do deserve second chances. Who knows? Could be good.

He won the Super Bowl with Dallas as the defensive coordinator in 1993. Butch was also the HC in Cleveland while Pagano was the secondary coach. Some connection between them.

Could be good with his knowledge of defense plus pagano's knowledge might help us out some on that side of the ball. Would not mind him if he was dallas's D coach during their dynasty years.

Pagano was also his DC at UNC for Davis first year there.

There is the conection. I think as far as just pure coaching we could do a lot worse. He has a pretty good history as a DC.

He was a DL coach too, with his knowledge of DL and Pagano's knowledge of secondaries could make a good combination.

hey, we're in the market for a new DL coach also...lol we are in the market for pretty much everything but HC still, unless CC gets to stay...which if that means we keep Peyton, i'm all for it

First night N91NA(The Colt's plane) has spent a night away from Indy. Must be a pretty important talk with whom ever it is. I'd think Butch Davis would fit nicely and would contribute to that "best staff" in the NFL. I look for the DC to be named next week. Maybe it's Butch. Butch and Chuck, kinda has some ring to it. Go Colts!

I've heard about Butch Davis coaching that strong cowboys D a long time ago, but my question is will his Defense be outdated. The NFL today is different from back then so it's just something that crossed my mind.

I thought it was signing just above avg players to super large contracts :)

Well that too, among other increasingly poor decisions (making his son GM, no backup QB...etc.).

Well, no one keeps the same EXACT plays forever. Besides, Steve Young's 49ers had one of the best passing offenses in history during that stretch, and that Dallas team was able to slow it down 2 NFC Championships in a row. A healthy mind is never out-dated. No scheme is ever truly out-dated. The NFL doesn't see anything new in terms of scheme; it goes in cycles.

Wow Pagano wasn't kidding about "the best coaching staff in the NFL".

I hope he is right. There is some potential on D. A few players and a good scheme is all we need to compete.

This isn't pointed directly at you Doogan, but to anyone who doesn't want a coach because he 'cheated' (i.e. all the people who ragged on Tressel).

Every head coach knows at least some of their players are receiving improper benefits. Some are better at distancing themselves from it than others.

If you want further proof, just watch a game. Try to count how many tattoo's you can see on a player and multiply it by $200 (very conservative). Those kids must all come from wealthy families, right?

He did pretty good things for UNC as head coach before he was fired. UNC was under some NCAA investigations so letting the HC go is the first step any organization does to try to clear thier name. I think Butch did nothing wrong but being the HC made him a target. Go figure...kinda like Tressel with Ohio. He turned that team around and actually gave UNC some football cred. There was actually some excitement while he was there. I wish he were still there at UNC.

Butch Davis new d coordinator?

I mentioned this a few times the day it was announced that Pagano was hired. Pagano has coached a lot of years with Davis in Miami, NC and Cleveland. Also I think it could be very helpful for Pagano to have an experienced HC on the staff, someone who can offer some advice and guidance on how to run a team not just one part of it.

Having Pagano and Butch run our defense would make our 3-4/4-3 hybrid defense lethal once we got a good NT and Secondary.

I agree. Davis could play sort of a assistant head coach role in addition to DC. He would be a very valuable coach on the team.

    • Actually those are all short heights for the average NFL reciever. I think I said a bigger possession reciever. Something more like 6'4 6'5. I guess Pascal is average height. I want that guy with a huge catch radius who can go up and bring down those high 50/50 throws. Dont get me wrong we have good talent but height insnt coachable. If you find TY talent that is 6'4 you take it over 5'9.
    • I think it doesn´t matter which Qb (IF at all)  you take at 15 (or 14 or16...),he should sit a year and learn anyway. So it wouldn´t be really a loss to start him in his 2nd year.
    • I thought we’d go 8-8 or 9-7 with JB, the rooks, turmoil of losing a franchise QB. we’re not that far off, even with all the injuries.  Which were many.   I was hoping we’d squeak in the playoffs.   I also thought Frank wanted an offense that put pressure on the D.  I really didnt see the creativity i did last year.  Not gimmicks, But creativity in formations and playcalling.  Perhaps it was due to our losses at WR and TE.  I also was confused by our bi-polar personality when it comes to risk and being aggressive.   I dont think the sky is falling (long-term), but some changes, and perhaps tweaks, are necessary.
    • I did that already either you understand it or you don't 
    • We currently have pick 15--if Tua is still available, would you take a punt and pick him, with the thought he would miss his rookie season?
