Most Pack fans have real concerns about the offensive line. Will the new guy do as well as Ledford?
Recently DD said of the OL, "Offensive line is continuing to get better and better..." That statement is subjective. We don't want opinion, we want FACTS, right?
At FAU: Coached the offensive line and served as run game coordinator, inheriting a unit that had lost three starters from the previous season. His 2018 line ranked 14th in the FBS in sacks allowed, giving up just 1.17 per game. The Owls also led Conference USA and ranked 14th nationally in rushing with 241.8 yards per contest.
At UNLV: During his first season in Las Vegas, the Rebel line helped the team post a dramatic improvement in the run game, finishing 36th in the nation in yards per game. In 2017 the Rebels finished 15th in the country in rushing and set the school record for fewest quarterback sacks allowed...
At Nebraska: In 2013 (OL coach), the Huskers ranked 19th nationally with an average of 215.7 rushing yards per game. allowing an average of only 1.3 sacks per game, a total that ranked 23rd nationally... in 2012 Nebraska ranked eighth nationally with 253.4 rushing yards per game... In 2011, Garrison helped develop an offensive line that paved the way for a Husker rushing attack that ranked 15th nationally, averaging 217.2 yards per game. (2011, 2012 asst OL coach)
Interesting reading IMO. These are the FACTS about John Garrison's OL coaching record. Looks to me like DD hit a home run with this hire. We can speak with some skepticism about the competition at FAU and UNLV but not Nebraska.
We haven't played a down yet but I've gone from worried to excited about our OL.
