Mike Groh will indeed be promoted to OC. Credentials for the new coach, likely WR, are NFL experience and a proven track record in recruiting elite prospects.
I know this isn't exactly what people want to hear but as of now, this is where it is heading.

I wonder if larry kirksey would be an option for wr coach. Anyone know where he is coaching now?

We can do better. He was fired from Virgina after 2 years by his own father. That's the only OC experience he has and the offense did not do well under his direction. This hire is very important.
""""In a brief press conference earlier today, Al Groh expressed that the firing of these three assistants was by no means an attempt to place blame for the Cavaliers' dismal performance this past season on the field. The firings were simply the result of his annual review .Offensive coordinator Mike Groh has been relieved of his duties and will no longer be with the team.
While firing Mike Groh is definitely a step in the right direction, the offense has sputtered since he took over three seasons ago. It is not the answer to the bigger question: How do you fix the Virginia Cavaliers?
Shaking up the coaching staff was a decent step in the right direction. But until Al Groh is removed from his duties as head coach, the Virginia Cavaliers will continue to struggle."""
In addition to Mike Groh, defensive line coach Levern Belin and secondary coach Steve Bernstein were told that they would not be returning.
I'm not going to believe it until I see it. We should be able to do better than that. If we can't, well, I think that says a lot.
Also, I don't think anyone is expecting us to make a hire until after the BCSNCG, and possibly until the NFL season is complete.

I'm fine with it...if this is the way we go...
I would much rather have billy Napier get the job over Groh. Napier had some pretty good offense's at clemson.
I don't care who it is as long as they are a GREAT playcaller. But as it stands form what I have read about Groh, I would be pretty disappointed if he did in fact get prompted.
It would be a "lateral" hire, but would love to see us talk to Bill Lazor at UVA.
I don't know if he would accept the position, but promoting Billy Napier to WR coach would be great. Young coach with some success at Clemson and I bet he would be a great recruiter.
My bet is Joe Pendry returns as OC.
