rodney garner as a coach? i swung over to auburn's site to find out more about him and they have literally ten (10) articles written about his hiring. has espn announced that they're going to halt regular programming and run a 24 hour special on him?
There's a lot of blood, sweat, and guts between dreams and success.
The next football game I coach will be my first. With that said, I think that it is telling that he has never been a coordinator as long as he has been coaching college football. He has always been praised as a recruiter (bagman for those who think his recruiting has been $hady), but never heard him discussed as a big time position coach. If I recall, it was several years before he could even be a major position coach, and one reason he left aubbie was UGA was willing to give him a spot as DL coach to obtain his recruiting services. Seems like I recall he was something like a TE coach/recruiting coordinator while at aubbie.
Some refer to him as another Trooper Taylor, and that may be correct as far as recruiting vs coaching ability, but I think he will be a little more "coachlike" on the sidelines. Don't expect to see him waving towels and wearing his hat backwards.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
He left Auburn for UT as Jim Donnan tried to get all of Fulmer's top recruiters. Donnan also Hired the UT defensive backs coach and gave him the Defensive Coordinator job at UGA. Terrible mistake on Donnan's part.
I am interested to see how no-nonsense Ellis Johnson and Garner interact as a staff. Garner is popular and knows the inner workings of the organization. Hewent out of his way to say he will loyal to Gus. Will he be loyal to Johnson?
Who was the coach on Staff at UGA who punched Donnan?
Johnson is just killing time until retirement, he has a few years in the Alabama retirement system, I bet he is just padding that.
My guess he is just here until Gus gets fired, gets Alabama retirement, and a nice payoff to keep quiet from the barn and then he heads to his retirement place.

Pathetic coach...NFL teams have made a living drafting UGA defensive lineman in the later rounds of the draft and getting incredible value. Geno Atkins is the best defensive tackle in the NFL at 24 years old. Under Garner he was rarely heard from and coached down....bengals got him in the 4th round. Good recruiter though.
go look at Georgias site and see how happy they are that he's gone.
Does that tell you all you need to know?

If you ask Georgia fans, he is not a coach at all. Their players on the DLine have been talented, but their development has been less than stellar. Most are glad to see him go, it is just the timing they do not like.
