The Curry Tree

Thanks to GT Sports Blog for coming up with this idea. I agree that one of the most important things the Athletic Director does is hiring. So who has Curry hired during his stints as head coach from 1980 to 1996? Scott at GT Sports already has a couple of hits with guys like Ianello, one of the best recruiting coordinators in the country who Curry hired while at Alabama. Another one that I found: Romeo Crennel. He was defensive line coach in 1980 under Coach Curry and left for the Giants. He is currently the coach of the Cleveland Browns, but he is most famous for crafting the New England Patriot defense that won three Super Bowls in four years. He was the 2003 NFL Assistant Coach of the Year. So hop online, do some research. Who else of note was Coach Curry responsible for bringing to his staff? -yb

Mac McWhorter at Georgia Tech. Big One. This guy is now with the Longhorns. Forgot about him.

Are you sure McWhorter coached under Curry? He didn't play under him b/c he went to Georgia. He definitely coached under O'Leary, but I don't think he coached or played under Curry.

I know this post is about hiring, but I think that players who palyed under Curry should be included, so of course we are talking Whisenhunt. Any other players of note?
