This is a public service announcement to all college football coaches.
Here is an emergency warning: Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
There is a frightening scenario coming to a town near you and very soon. The three-headed monster that now inhabits Coral Gables will definitely destroy you and your team before you can react.
These men are not just college coaches, they are the best of the best when it comes to recruiting. Everyone who knows college football acknowledges this. All of the other college coaches around them fear this.
So here we go with one of the best of the best:
James Coley, who served the last three seasons as offensive coordinator at Florida State, is in his first season as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Hurricanes. He joined Al Golden's staff on Jan. 24, 2013. Coley spent the previous five seasons in Tallahassee on Jimbo Fisher’s staff – all five as tight ends coach and the last three as the offensive coordinator.
As the recruiting coordinator at Florida State in 2008 and 2009, he was instrumental in the Seminoles landing back-to-back Top 10 signing classes and was also named the ACC’s top recruiter in 2010 by ESPN.com.
He spent two seasons as an offensive assistant with the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban. While with the Dolphins, Coley worked with running backs Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown when the duo boasted the NFL’s seventh-best rushing attack.
Coley’s college coaching career began as a graduate assistant at LSU on offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher’s staff in 2003 and 2004. The Tigers won the 2003 National Championship and played in the 2004 Capital One Bowl.
Coley spent six years as a high school football coach in Miami from 1997-2002, first as quarterbacks coach from 1997-99 at Miami Senior HS, where he worked with former Hurricanes stars and current NFL standouts Andre Johnson and Roscoe Parrish.
