He is the co-defensive coordinator. I recognize Fickell calls in the plays, but you know Whithers has a large amount of input as well.
The safety play has been almost as back as the linebacker play this year. Way too many blown coverages and missed tackles by both groups. We are seeing a lot of big plays this year because the safeties are blowing their assignments and taking terrible angles. Like on the long TD run tonight, we missed one tackle in the whole and he was gone. Where was the safety over there?
I'm no Fickell apologist, but I don't understand why no one is calling for Whithers head or place any blame on him.
He doesn't from me I say let the entire D staff go they're all WORTHLESS
fire him too. Clean house. Bring back Heacock or hire someone else. This is a JOKE!
UNC fans I talked with during the summer were hardly losing sleep over him coming here. His defenses are masked HEAVILY by turnovers.
No one should get a pass. Win as a team...win not so good as a team.
I heard the same too.
He doesn't..if he is calling the plays then he deserves as much blame as Fickell is getting.
We are coming for you Bama!
"according to a source familiar with the goings on behind the doors of the WHAC,there is absolutely no panic.Actually, quite the contrary."
Agree. Every on at UNC was happy to see Withers go...Co- Coordinators nerver works is a disaster waiting to happen. Just leave Luke alone he is not the one on the field missing tackles, not filling proper gaps, not making good drops, dropping INT's... let Withers go & bring paul Haynes or Taver Johnson come back & coach these safeties
Not going to happen. Have you seen the Arkansas defense this year.

True. But John L. has always considered himself a D guru...can't help matters
Ive been wondering the same thing. I guess the question is who is calling the plays? Ive never seen our d look so bad. Good thing the offense is strong and gonna get stronger.
Exactly Nd Buck. Been saying the same for about 3 weeks.
