Thoughts on our DC situation


I'm sure this has been discussed to death, but I was just introduced to TN recently and haven't heard much in the way of candidates for the job.  I have a couple thoughts/questions and would appreciate the feedback/input from the Nation.

A)  Wouldn't it be valuable, especially for recruiting, if MA annouced his retirement so we could give our recruits an idea of who they would be playing for next year.  Assuming JF makes this hire, this would make starting next year under said DC more attractive than under MA and bonehead staff.

2) What are the chances of replacing Jody Allen with this "DCIW" as Special Teams coach?  It seems to me that while a mid-season coaching change can be chaotic, this particular squad has no where to go but up - and the obvious improvement would be a testament to the abiilty of the new DC (even though Sloth, from the Goonies, could probably coach these guys up better than JA).

D) Unrelated to the above, but has anyone seen what Mike Singletary built at the 49ers camp?  The Hill of Pain: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/object/article?f=/c/a/2009/03/22/SPUI16KU04.DTL&o=0 - SC did a short on this that was pretty interesting, they also listed off a bunch of Hall of Famers who have used hill training throughout their careers.  I think this falls right in line with creating the toughness Jimbo talks about, we could also entomb the d-staff inside while building it...

Thoughts on any of this happening?
