Re: Joe Tressey UC Defensive Coordinator Gone?
from Koch's blog
The quote from Brian Kelly on the UC news release about Tresey reads, "Joe was an integral part of our Big East Championship in 2008 but we differ philosophically on where we want to go defensively in the future." One source told me today that UC would switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense next season. Whether that's true and whether that was behind the decision for Kelly and Tresey to part ways I don't know.
A 3-4 scheme would seem to fit the mold of athlete Kelly is recruiting, more speed and instinct than size, and would create the possiblity of a deceptive and intelligent defense to match his offense. As much as it pains me to think this, could he have learned something from watching the Steelers?
