Glad to be putting a line out there for the new Big 3 Roll Up forum!

Been a long-time fan of the show, and am happy to help grow the culture.

FSU peeps: most of you are aware that with the Kendal Briles hire comes the likely hire of Randy Clements (OL Coach at UH). We currently have a vacancy on our staff with the firing (finally) of Alonzo Hampton (ST).

Interestingly enough, the Tallahassee Democrat's Jim Henry broke yesterday evening that Wes McGriff "has joined FSU's staff," as the new DB coach. The Athletic later disputed this, indicating sources contradicting this hiring. Other outlets shortly thereafter disputed the initial report as well.

Additionally, Ron Dugans (WR coach) at Miami was recently released with the new change at HC in Coral Gables.

I'm curious to hear everyone's take on this. I expect additional changes on the coaching staff at FSU, but was not anticipating the volume of relocation (or outright firing) necessary to account for all three names above.

I fully expect Clements to be on the staff at FSU, in fact, it appears that UNC coach Brandon Jones joining Dana Holdgerson at Houston has now opened an ideal window for FSU to snatch Clements from the University of Houston (referencing tweet from Jason Staples).

I've been expecting the Dugans' hire as well, with the FSU beat on this trail for the past week. However, the McGriff narrative is now throwing a wrench in my thought process here.

Seminole Nation: what are your thoughts, impressions, and sauces telling you?

Oh, and WELCOME TO THE BIG 3 ROLL UP FORUM!

For Dugans, I think the fan base is sour to the fact that he denied us due to his wife but the staff and admin are gonna be all on board for the hire. David Kelly might still have his on-field role as WR coach and have Dugans as an analyst which I think might happen. Clements should be in the works. For the McGriff hire, Jim Henry hasn’t broke any news as of recent on anything big so for him to break this news has me in “I’ll wait” mode.

No way Dugans doesn't take an on field job

I still think Dugans ends up on this FSU staff. I could be way off here, but would think it’s just a very natural addition.

Agree here.

I watched a clip of Crime Dog (McGriff) and can only hope FSU is able to add him to the staff. He comes off as a technician and motivator.

I am totally lost as to what any of you think McGriff will bring to FSU.  If we are just gonna hire coaches that can recruit and not coach, again, what in the hell are we paying Taggart for?  He was supposed to be this elite recruiter? Oh boy.
