I'm a Jags fan and an Alabama fan, so I'm aware of Mike's full coaching history in recent years.
Mike's coaching philosophy suits Herm Edwards perfectly. He's a conservative play-caller who leans on his run game. I can see why Herm would be interested in him.
He's really talented at developing young quarterbacks. He has a history of doing this, developing Croyle into a solid passer while he was at Alabama despite the fact that Brodie really only played about 1 3/4ths years due to injuries.
John Parker Wilson was a record-breaking QB under Shula's influence, and, non-coincidentally, he became very mediocre when Shula left this year.
Garrard this year was the greatest improvement of one player from one season to the next that I've ever seen. He better win the Comeback Player of the Year (comeback? Most Improved?).
If you like Herm's style--- and I know most of you don't--- you'll like Mike Shula as an offensive coach. Either way, his influence will be beneficial for Brodie.
