Fine by me.  GB's defense has been a liability.

Pleasant was a HS coach in 2011. 

 

I get going for young guys with energy. But we need people who have actually put together offensive and defensive schemes and called plays. This is getting kind of messy. A bunch of high energy guys with no experience calling plays and a A hole offensive line coach. I am starting to feel deflated a bit.

They're replacing just about every coach on the staff, naturally some of them are going to be duds.

Better not be at DC or OC...or the entire house of cards comes crashing down. See: Austin, Teryl (and he actually had experience)

I am too - I mean, isn't there anyone out there better? Rex Ryan? Fox has no interest either?

Untutored courage is useless in the face of educated bullets. ~ George S. Patton 

 

I agree a bunch of young high energy guys with little to no experience have no chance against experienced coaches early on. 

 

The Super Bowl was a perfect example. McVay had no idea what to do once Bellicheat totally mixed up his defensive scheme. Lack of experience. Meanwhile, his d coordinator, Wade Phillips, who has been coaching in the NFL for 43 years  called a magnificent game. 

 

We need some been there done that guys around.

I tend to agree, but Capers has been there and done that poorly.

If he's in his terrible twos, it would be an ideal redeemer project.

I'm not sure what impact the new OC is going to have one way or the other considering it's Taylor's offense with Zac calling his own plays..

Exactly...not sure what an Offensive Coordinator's duties will be if he isn't allowed to call the offense's plays.

I'm starting to wonder why he's having such a hard time finding a DC.  Evidently both Del Rio and Capers said "no thanks".  Why is he having such a hard time finding an established guy to work with him?

Aubrey Pleasant is in his second season with the Los Angeles Rams as the cornerbacks coach in 2018. 

Pleasant played an integral role in implementing defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ scheme. With the guidance of Pleasant, CBs Trumaine Johnson, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Kevin Peterson all recorded two interceptions on the season. 

As a unit, the Rams defense forced 28 takeaways, including 18 interceptions, tied for the sixth-highest interception total in 2017. L.A. scored 126 points off of takeaways, which was the second- most points off takeaways a season ago. 

Prior to joining the Rams, Pleasant spent four seasons with the Washington Redskins from 2013-2016. He served as an offensive assistant in his first season in Washington in 2013 before transitioning to the defensive side of the ball prior to the 2014 season and working extensively with the team’s defensive backs. 

In 2015, Pleasant played a pivotal role in assisting Defensive Backs Coach Perry Fewell with a secondary that was besieged by injuries throughout the season. Pleasant aided in the transition of Quinton Dunbar, who joined the Redskins as a college free agent wide receiver before switching to cornerback in the middle of training camp. Dunbar played in 11 games, making one start and intercepting Giants quarterback Eli Manning in a crucial Week 12 victory during the Redskins’ NFC East championship season. Pleasant also assisted in the midseason transition of 12-year NFL veteran DeAngelo Hall from cornerback to safety and the rapid development of sixth-round pick Kyshoen Jarrett, a safety who also contributed significantly at nickel after volunteering for the role in camp. 

Pleasant transitioned to the defensive side of the ball in 2014 after spending his first season with the Redskins as an offensive assistant. In 2014, he assisted Defensive Backs Coach Raheem Morris and played a significant role in the development of fourth-round pick Bashaud Breeland. With Pleasant’s guidance, Breeland started 15 games – third-most by a rookie cornerback in Redskins history behind only Champ Bailey (16 in 1999) and Pro Football Hall of Famer Darrell Green (16 in 1983) – and tied for the NFL rookie lead in passes defensed (14). 

Pleasant was an offensive staff/head coach intern for the Cleveland Browns before joining the Redskins. Prior to his time in Cleveland, he spent two years with the University of Michigan as a defensive graduate assistant, helping the team appear in back-to-back bowl games. With Pleasant working specifically with the defensive backs in 2011, Michigan allowed 190.5 yards passing per game and 17.4 points per game, ranking No. 16 and sixth in the nation, respectively. Michigan’s total defense improved to No. 17 in the nation (322.2 ypg.) after ranking No. 110 (450.8 ypg.) the year prior to Pleasant’s arrival. Michigan’s defense allowed only 12 touchdown passes, led the Big Ten with 29 takeaways and tied for first in Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) with 20 fumble recoveries. 

In 2012, Pleasant was promoted to Assistant Defensive Backs Coach, helping Michigan’s total defense (320.0 ypg.) and passing yards allowed (169.5 ypg.) improve to No. 13 and No. 5 in the country, respectively. Following Michigan’s 2012 season, Pleasant was one of 30 coaches nationwide invited to the NCAA Future Football Coaches Academy in San Antonio. 

Pleasant coached defensive backs at Grand Blanc (Mich.) H.S. in 2010 and was a behavioral specialist/special needs teacher in the Flint Community School District. His duties included working directly with cognitively-impaired and academically-neglected adult students to help educate them within the Flint school district. 

Pleasant was a three-year letterman at Wisconsin from 2005- 08, appearing in 41 career games with 14 starts at safety. He finished his collegiate career with 80 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, one forced fumble and appeared in four consecutive bowl games: Capital One (2005 and 2006), Outback (2007) and Champs Sports (2008). Pleasant received a master’s degree in education while coaching at Michigan and earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Wisconsin in 2009. 

Pleasant is a native of Flint, Mich., where he graduated from the city’s Montrose H.S., receiving Class B all-state honorable mention honor at safety his senior year. He attended Flint Northern H.S. and earned all-city running back honors as a sophomore.

maybe the older coaching crowd wants no part of working for MFB, knowing the only reason ole marv is gone is that the stadium was going to be empty if he kept him onboard. 

 

maybe not...just a suggestion
