With the announcement of Stacy Searels as offensive line coach, Mack’s makeover is complete. Unless/until somebody else leaves. Counting the strength & conditioning coach, that’s seven new faces on a 10-man staff. My apologies on the ages – what’s listed after the jump is close, but I was unable to find exact ages for some of the coaches.New coach, age . . . former coach, age:
Offensive line – Searles 45, McWhorter 58
Receivers – Wyatt 44, Kennedy 43
O-coordinator – Harsin 34, GDavis 58
Secondary – Gray 48, Akina 52
Defensive tackles – BDavis 39, Tolleson 61
D-coordinator – Diaz 36, Muschamp 39
S&C (football) – Wylie 34, Madden 49
Defensive ends – Giles 40
Running backs – Applewhite 32
Tight ends – Chambers 49
The seven new hires average about 11½ years younger than the coaches they replace . . . The average age of the new staff is right at 40; it was around 48 for the 2009 staff . . . We had three coaches over 55 a year ago; there are none now that have hit 50 (unless I’m off on Chambers) . . . We had two coaches under 40 last year (Boom, Major); we have five under at this point.
Mack’s the dad now, not a big brother.
