The scape-goating season continues. First, it was the OC, now it's the OL coach's turn with more shuffling of the coaching staff (?) on the way. Looks like Karl Dorrell will be looking for his 4th OL coach going into his fifth year in Westwood. As DD noted in the diaries, Colletto has made it official: he is (cough*getting pushed off*cough) leaving Dorrell's 6 loss team to become the OL coach for one of the worst teams in the NFL, aka the Detroit Lions. We had already speculated on this lateral move here on BN. Here is the official press release, I mean Dorrell's crocodile tears in reaction to Colleto news, which is coming out of Westwood:
"I know this was a tough decision for Jim," said head coach Karl Dorrell. "He did a great job for us this past season. I know he doesn't like to leave after just one year, but the job with the Lions is ideal for him at this point in his career.
"I want to thank him for his hard work this season. He will always be a great Bruin."
Anyways, back on the home front Dump Dorrell speculates what may be going on with Dorrell's perennial 6 loss program and who may also leave (or scapegoated) this off-season:
As for who will get the OL coaching position any guess is good right now. No experience needed right?! Expect an announcement soon.
Remember, in Dorrell's world of mediocrity and passing the buck, it is always the assistant's fault. The buck never stops at his desk. So it really doesn't matter who will be the 4th OL coach going into Dorrell's 5th year in Westwood.
