Who would you bring in to replace Greg Robinson?


For the purposes of this FanPost, we are going to assume that Michigan either wins or loses a close bowl game and that Dave Brandon has decided that Rich Rodriguez deserves another year as the head coach. Let's also assume that Brandon told Rodriguez that he has to fire Greg Robinson and let the new defensive coordinator pick his own staff members and install his defensive scheme, not necessarily the 3-man front that Rodriguez seems to prefer. So my question is who would you want Rodriguez to hire to turn around the defense?

My choice would be Randy Shannon who was just fired last night as Miami's (yes that Miami) head coach. Mark Stoops of Florida State and Justin Wilcox of Tennessee would also be excellent candidates, but I don't know if they would be interested in leaving secure jobs for a possible one and done tenure at Michigan. Shannon was the defensive coordinator at Miami for six seasons prior to replacing Larry Coker as the head coach and his defenses were ranked 6th, 7th, 2nd, 28th, 4th, and 7th in total defense. Shannon was also the linebackers coach at Miami and is a strong recruiter, which could help Michigan finish strong this season with defensive recruiting.
