I don't think it is a scheme fit move at all. Someone mentioned Bilichek taught him to have someone with a military background to instill toughness and discipline. Could have been that considering how much coach talks about the line being so tight knit.A comment that caught my eye: Bielema said he hired Ben Miller because he worked under Troy Calhoun, whose "offense is very similar".
Calhoun is a *little* less doctrinaire about the triple option than Army or Navy are, but it's an option offense.
Tony Petersen at App State wasn't running much option, but it was a very run-heavy offense with a decent amount of QB run.
And yet we've moved Isaiah Williams and Coran Taylor to WR and brought in and recruited a bunch of statuesque pocket passers more akin to a Wisconsin-type offense.
And we are certainly not recruiting the kind of smaller linemen you associate with service academy football.
