Diversifying Bobo's Playbook

More on Figgins' switch to fullback. Weiszer has a story up where Coach Richt explains how this move could help the offense out-scheme opposing forces.
“When you have a fullback that can play that position legitimately and tight end legitimately, it gives you some diversity when he’s in the game.” Richt said. “What it does is defenses, they like to know who’s in the game. By personnel, they want to know what’s going on, and if you have guys who can be more than one thing then when that personnel group is in the game, they’re not sure exactly how you’re going to line up, what it’s going to entail. It gives them less of a clue.”
Statistically, Bobo had a good season despite the 6-7 record in 2010. But that did little to quell the critics. Regardless of how you feel about the Dawgs' OC, the fact is he isn't a candidate for head coaching gigs. And that is the measuring stick to which all high profile assistants are to be measured.

Bobo has a lot of tools at his disposal next season. Bruce Figgins being utilized as a fullback, H-back...moving TE could be one of his most valuable.
