Jim O'Brien has made a solid impression in the various interviews around town. He's doing a nice job selling his philosophy and plans for the future. Step one is assembling a staff of trusty assistants OB (sorry, can't wait for JO to be traded) has worked with in the past. Our old friend and defensive coordinator Dick Harter will join him along with Frank Vogel and Lester Conner. Conner is under contract with the Bucks, but on JMV's show, OB said they have permission to talk to him and it sounded like a mere formality. Obviously this crew has worked well together in the past and they should be able to hit the ground running.
