Terry Hawthorne joins Arkansas staff

#26      
So we banned ourselves from recruiting ESL for awhile just to have the guy move on? That sucks. Did it set us back considering we just got an ESL guy?

I’m guessing the recruiting ban was lifted after he left? (If it hadn’t already run it’s course)
Not ideal.

He didn't do much for us in recruiting. Didn't play any part in us getting the ESL LB.

Not doubting you just found it interesting with his interview on Rivals he named him by name as one of the reasons he committed and called him a legend.

No they didn't! The fact that Hawthorne is leaving will not change the outcome because it was discussed however, Hawthorne is the guy that brought Hayden to the staff! No need to spread incorrect information.
I'm glad they talked about it. If it was going to happen at least they were up front with the recruit(s).

Title, any sense on the impact, if any, that this will have for UI recruiting ESL athletes? Frankly, I can see any of 3 scenarios
A) No impact
B) Negatively, as Terry could've played a solid role in recruiting those athletes
C) Positive, in that the ESL staff can see that BB's staff is doing good by one of their own and helping Terry to further his career

I wouldn’t think so. That applied to us because we hired him directly from ESL and he wasn’t an on the field coach.
Is defensive quality control analyst considered an on the field coach? I didn't think they were allowed to directly coach kids during practice or games. I found an article from 2017 that talks about Auburn not being able to recruit players from a certain high school for 2 years because they hired the HS head coach as an analyst. Or is it only bc we hired him straight from ESL? Not sure how it works.

I get that it's been 2 years so wouldn't apply to Arkansas now, but say they hired him for his new position 2 years ago, would they have been banned from recruiting ESL?

I believe it’s because we hired him directly from ESL. Whereas Arkansas hired him from us.

There will be some impact because the kids respect him. I’m sure BB will keep the momentum moving forward. CP is a household name as well so things will continue to be positive.

Terry Hawthorne is a solid young man and though he wasn't able to recruit (out of state) and in the trenches, with his passion and professional (x-perience), his hardworking attitude and being largely a mentor and player developer, he worked well with BRET and the staff. He had developed and thoroughly worked with some of the Midwest and Southern coaches to work succeed at the next level of coaching. He had an impact in defensive backs and strategically; that wisdom and positive instincts/skills will be carried on by a few of the players that are on the team. I will always respect him and hope he succeeds wherever he gets the best opportunity to match his ability and experience. GOD BLESS YOU TERRY and FAMILY.

Not enough capitalization.

I wish Coach Hawthorne nothing but the best. He will always be an important part of our football past and a respected Illini Man. I'm sure he understands that. Perhaps he will circle back to us as some have said. You will always be welcome in Champaign whether it be as a coach or simply a visitor.

Successful organizations should expect to lose key staff members from time to time. Terry will be missed but is not irreplaceble. I'm sure there are ways to continue our demonstrate our interest in St. Louis area players. Let's move on.
