Herrmann coached the Jets from 2006-2008 and before that was the defensive coordinator for the University of Michigan for nine seasons.
In 1997, Herrmann won the Broyles award for assistant coach of the year. The Wolverines were AP national champs that year as well.
Certainly don't mean to sound too pessimistic, but where was Vernon Gholston last year for the Jets?
All the onus certainly does not fall on Mr. Herrmann for that, and it's not like the Giants really have any young linebackers that need developing, but I wonder where Herrmann fell into the equation of trying to develop the 6th overall pick.
No less, he's our guy this year, and he does have a pretty nice resume...especially at the college level. I'm sure we wont see any drop off in linebacker play this year as a result of a coaching change. Sheridan is still there to put him in place..just in case.
