Nice hire. Tons of experience as a DC and also has some West coast recruiting ties.
He will split the special teams with Miller. That essentially opens up one extra spot to add a big-time recruiter.

Great hire considering the age and experience of the rest of the defensive staff.

I always wondered how important having a dedicated special teams coach was, seems like it would be very easy to create a division of ST groups for coaches to head.

I'd like to believe BB ups all staffers recruiting game, but agree with everyone that getting a guy who's obviously a recruiting hire would be ideal. I think we have three positions left, WR, DB, and a wild card. No reason to think BB can't find plus recruiters for those roles.

Seems like a good hire. Plenty of experience in the P5 world. I agree a better hire than Lovie did with his son. I never understood why Lovie started fading away. BB is putting together a good staff for his first go-around at UI.

One of the first names mentioned on here for OC, Dan Enos, was just hired by Maryland as their OC. It will be interesting to see how that goes, especially since Locksley will have a tough time completely letting go of the offense.

Couldn't resist jumping in here

To hire Enos, Maryland fired Scottie Montgomery, who is connected to Tony Petersen via ECU and would be a home run for our open WR coach position!

New #illini d-line coach Terrance Jamison said he first met Bret Bielema when he was being recruited in high school and Bielema was d-coordinator at Wisconsin.

Terrance Jamison hitting on in-state recruiting, like basically every other new hire for the #illini Priority? Yup.

Terrance Jamison said family both in Chicago and Champaign but also the relationship with Bret Bielema were the big draws to the #illini

Terrance Jamison said he's contacted all the d-lineman so he could introduce himself and will contact their parents and loved ones too. Film comes at a later time.
