5 Year Member
Well, he had one year as a P5 head line coach, which is more than several other NU head position coaches hired by Rhule. We will never know if his uncle status was a small added plus or a deciding factor, but if Rhule wanted to keep one member of the staff (as he said he did), DR made as much sense as anyone.It’s hard not to make the connection given DRs experience and background for this position. The fact is he doesn’t have the qualifications to be a head line coach at a P5 program. Now if Rhule believes he has enough inherent qualities that allow Rhule to help him grow into it then fine. But it’s a week argument to believe his initial hire and retention didn’t have some flavor of Dylan recruitment involved.
And don’t forget, he is still the uncle of an uncommitted D. Raiola QB with a Husker offer.
