I thought of him earlier. Great TX recruiter and loves physical football. Did his name come up or are you just spitballing?

Would be a very solid option, imo. His offense could work wonders at altitude. Texas recruiting for sure. Somehow missed that Andy Reid was his OL coach in college. Pretty good coaching tree he's learning from

Someone has been posting some very thorough coaching profiles on the CU Sports subreddit and I feel they're worth linking to here as there's not a huge audience over there and I feel like he's putting some serious amount of work into these.

He didn’t become a coordinator until 2018. But he also was one of the highest paid OL coaches for some time. Honestly, having gotten to know him, it’s puzzling.

These are great and a lot of time put into it. I really like Herman and Grimes even more after reading those two. I'd worry about Ash being the DC again for Herman as he flamed out at Texas. Otherwise, either of those two would still be homeruns for me
