Seemed very likeable.  If there's any risk in this hire; it's a risk I think we should be taking.  Go leopards!

Trox and Fein did interview. Loose did not.

XLeopard - would there be any prospect of bringing in Troxell as an assistant?

No. There are no circumstances I can think of that would have Trox willing to come back as an assistant.

Many good things said. Pretty reasonable approach to recruiting and schemes. I like the focus on the players' psyche.

With the problems we had in the past, he seems like a solid choice.

Very interesting that Bruce acknowledged the lack of passion from alums, parents, and the school. Maybe the consultant and committee are working?


I agree, I was also pleasantly pleased Byerly was in attendance.

Hmmmm is it reasonable to assume Coach Garrett has a bigger budget for his assistant coaches?

Paul, and to a lesser extent Brad, seemed to ask questions from Frank's wheel of excuses.

What about redshirting?

What about roster sizes?

What about academic standards?

I wish Garrett would've shut em down, but he was being polite.  Every program has challenges, but the positives of this school for out weight the issues that much be dealt with.

YES! Throwing out all the supposed impediments to success and so "why LC?" Some questions or preludes to questions almost seemed like knocks on the guy. Disappointed in PR. Maybe could've asked "Will you be boarding the team bus with your players or will you have it stop by your house on the way out?" Things had gotten out of hand around here and we needed a change. Some I guess still dont believe it.

Will use bogies link -thanks!- to relisten. One good question was re the QB situation. I believe Coach said "We will bring in several in this class..." Presumably he has some kids in mind from his recruiting efforts. The staff has one good one committed that I know of - Northrup.

That's the impression I took away as well. Would it be too much to hope for a Ross Scheuerman-type athlete as an all-purpose back/receiver on top of that?

Also I like Coach Garrett's attitude, when one player succeeds, we all succeed.  We need more of that.

Watching a bit of the replay . . . in describing the recruits and the players, Coach Garrett says, "we want them to be renaissance men." That nails it. It's a perfect description of the ideal Lafayette student-athlete. I think Coach Garrett will know a potential renaissance man when he meets one.

Maybe a new hashtag - #RenaissanceMen

Yes, he sure said all the right things. Bruce also has a total man crush on John.

I also found it interesting that there were several references to the fact that the program was in a bad place and it lacked juice and attendance and interest was suffering.  That was never publically mentioned before.

Excited to see who he brings on staff, and appears he has several individuals in mind already.

I think his comment regarding the QB and bringing some guys in, would have me look to transfer or see of there are other options out there for freshman qbs.
I thought that the recruiting class was full already. That leaves the question are there de-committs? Was more scholarships raised?
I wonder if he looks at everyone's hudl or film again and re evaluates their position. The talent is there to win games. I just think there were personnel in the wrong positions.

That, and I think Coach Garrett could barely contain himself about how delighted he was just to be here.  That was genuine.

Solid choice Lafayette. I felt Perry was the best fit, and really liked his coaching resume. But I give LC credit for going outside the Lafayette umbrella and hiring John Garrett. The college had three very strong choices in Lamb, Perry, and the eventual selection Garrett.

I've watched film of his offense in three games, and it is impressive. From the clips I observed, he favors a vertical attack in his passing game. That should be fun to watch, and Mrazek could be one of several beneficiaries of this scheme.

IMHO, the two most important hires he makes on his staff will be 1, his defensive coordinator, and 1a, the assistant in charge of recruiting.

I'm turning the page and hoping Coach Garrett is successful in building a program that is a perennial contender to win the Patriot League Championship.

Brad Wilson:
    McCutcheon declined to give details of Garrett's contract, except that it was a multi-year deal. McCutcheon also said that Garrett would have the "resources he needs" to hire the staff he wants.

And "one on one" interview:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=U-iZOLBglYM

Good Reinhard: interesting/revealing quotes from Coach, Mike Joseph and even Bruce:

http://www.mcall.com/sports/colle...ootball-coach-20161221-story.html

Asked what impressed him about Garrett, Joseph said, "He's an expert on football, and that's what I thought we needed. The more we talked, the more I felt his connection to what he can do with the kids. The staff he'll put together will be phenomenal and he'll be moving forward with excitement and energy. Some things may surprise him, but he'll hit them head-on."

Engaging a video chat with all players and recruits - before the announcement - certainly seems unusual but it's the sort of thing I've started to expect of Lafayette.  That was an inspired decision, IMHO.
