Bills DL Coach Bill Teerlinck leaving for same position at Va Tech

Recommended Posts

The Bills are finally thought of as a good enough organization for teams to poach talent from as opposed to seeing coaches get fired and have success elsewhere (sometimes.)

I don't think a lateral move to lower level of football fits your narrative. My best guess is the Bills told him to look elsewhere.

I misread the title I thought it was for the HC position. Weird as thought the D-line play outside of that blip in run defense in the middle of the season had been mostly good. But maybe internally there were issues or this was a personal issue with Teerlinck.

This sucks, I was just thinking whoever the Bills D-Line coach is did a great job. Is this a rare occurrence for a D-Line coach to go from the NFL to college?

 

I agree.  It sounds a little Hokie.

This leaves me with only one question.

 

Doomed?

No, the Hokie stadium is not doomed.

I wonder if he got the sense or knew they weren't happy with his performance.  

 

I get the coaching with an old friend part but seems it would be better for your career to be attached with one of the best defenses in the entire NFL.

Leaving the NFL to get the same job at Va Tech (of all paces)??

 

Wow.

May have been a family decision, hard to tell.

Not sure about pay - some programs pay assistants very well, some don’t. The biggest difference is recruiting. It’s non stop.

-better weather

-less year long stress

-dealing with kids rather than millionares

-nice college with a great campus atmosphere

That's kind of an odd move if he was well thought-of at OBD.

 

Also, he looks like a police sketch...

Knowing nothing about the situation, that was my immediate reaction too.

 

I assumed he was asked to leave, otherwise the career move doesn't make a lot of sense.

Haha...it doesn't make sense?  To who? You?  You have zero idea what motivated him to take that job.  Could be wanting his kids to grow up in a small town....maybe he's sick of the Buffalo winters.....maybe he's tired of dealing with the NFL egos.

VT replaced long-time DC Bud Foster with a 37 year old Justin Hamilton.  Hamilton is a former Hokie player who has been back in the program for two years - the past year as safeties coach.  Just thinking that Coach Fuente wanted some added experience in the D coaching room.  It also helps that Teerlink has the trust factor of working with Fuente in the past. 

 

Additionally, I would imagine Hamilton is making a lot less than Foster (who was one of the highest paid assistants in College Football) so there was money to throw around to attract some high caliber coaches for the D Staff to help a young coordinator. 

 

All factors I would guess...

I was never impressed with him, his defensive lines would get blown off the ball defending the run, his defensive line would go  games without generating a sack.  When you play  Leslie Frazier's, 19th century cover two you need an attacking defensive line that attacks the line of scrimmage. I hope Buffalo can find a good defensive line coach with an attacking style.

What percentage of time do you think we played “19th century cover 2.”

He was probably on his way out. Im sure McDermott was just protecting a young Coach who he is close to.

https://hokiesports.com/news/2020/1/8/football-fuente-adds-nfl-coaching-veteran-bill-teerlinck-as-techs-defensive-line-coach.aspx

 

He has a history with the head coach. 

 

Found this interesting though:

 

Quote

Fuente also confirmed on Wednesday that Darryl Tapp will serve as co-defensive line coach for the Hokies, working with Teerlinck.

 

So, he’s moving from the NFL to college to be a co-defensive line coach?

I can not imagine a college will pay more for an assistant coaching position than the pros.  I wonder if he may have desires to be a head coach at the college level.

 

This loss will hurt.

Yep I think the D line was coached very very well.

Could be that he saw a quicker path of advancement and prefers college

I ain't mad he's leaving.

 

Never forgave his notorious dirty tactics teaching dad John Teerlinck and then Minnesota DC Tony Dungy for Jim Kelly getting his knee taken out in that pivotal Vikings game in 1994.

 

Something definitely weird about this though.........maybe he and McD had differences.

There are at most 3 people on TSW that know what the hell they're talking about when it comes to the nuances of NFL position coaching.     

 

That is all...


Thanks I appreciate that. If you don’t mind my asking, who are the other two?  Because I can’t think of any.

Must not like the weather here.  It's not like Oliver and Phillips are going to forget what he taught them.  Getting someone fresh in there may just add to their repertoire.
