Good start for Dooley

It is always interesting watching a new head coach put together a coaching staff. Those hires are usually what makes a coach a success or failure.

So it was with much interest to see what Derek Dooley would do with his two coordinator positions.

I give up a thumbs up to Dooley for the hiring of Frank Scelfo as offensive coordinator. Scelfo did some good things at Tulane in the same position. He is familiar with Ruston and Louisiana which should help both in the transition and in recruiting.

I am a little less certain about Tommy Spangler as defensive coordinator. Spangler had been a head coach at Division II Presbyterian College in South Carolina. I'm sure he is a fine coach but there will be a transition from Division II to Division I-A (OK, Bowl Subdivision) football.

Still, it appears to be a good start for Dooley at Tech.
