Tommerdahl was the Special Teams coach on Fran's staff here at TCU.. I remember Fran telling a recruiting story about him when they were somewhere before- perhaps at UNM- Tommerdahl was in a recruit's living room in a tense moment sitting on a couch. He had kind of a mullet back then and the recruit's little brother (a toddler) was behind the couch and Fran could see the kid hanging on with full weight to Tommerdahl's hair.

Will Kaz and Bryan have coaching or non-coaching positions?

(do we have one or two more coaching spots to fill?)

Neither Kaz nor Carrington is a football coach so to speak. Kaz is strength and conditioning and Carrington is recruiting only. I believe 2 more spots.

I mentioned to Sonny today that I dated his cousin briefly in the mid/late 80s in Houston and remember her mentioning his brother Rick was a grad asst or assistant at Rice on Jerry Berndt's staff at the time. Sonny introduced his sister BeBe to us- she lives in Lubbock, who told us that the whole family really wanted him to take the Tech job but he was insistent that TCU was the place for him.
Yeah I really thought he would jump at Tech because of the history, family connections there. That he turned them down to take the TCU job, the Metroplex, does say something about him.

Still need a DC, someone at LB, and someone at either CB or S. Assuming the DC will coach one of those positions maybe?
I can think of one who has been mentioned who can be DC and coach linebackers. He would be a good hire

Tommerdahl has been around. Followed Fran for many years. Glad to see Kaz, too.

Unrelated, does Rick LaFavers still coach college ball anywhere?

Isn’t Garrett Riley Lincoln’s little brother? Looks just like him…

Just watched the replay... very impressive... there was a lot of plan, coherence, outside experience in that press conference that we just haven't seen in a long time... obviously, I want to see that plan come to life on the field, but this is a new Era of TCU football and I am excited about it.

I mean, we started out talking about the S&C program!!!! Wow! It's obvious... there was a lot wrong with the TCU football program.

Does this mean Modkins is out as CB coach?
