This is like you being a manager and complaining to your GM you could do a way better job of you hired your old employees and then he gives you the power/responsibilities. Better be accurate my dude.You all are overreacting like always.
People like Cooney, DVD, Andy Vaughn etc are the guys who will initiate first contact with players letting them know if the staff is interested & send to the coaches who then watch the tape & eval if they're good enough for an offer.
The coaches have quality control assistants & GA's who job it is to watch film & do the grunt work while the position coaches are handling their other responsibilities.
The recruiting department puts together events, keeps in contact with players & sets up UV's & OV's for the players, the coaches keep in contact with them as well & will evaluate their tape & in person camp performances.
There's nothing wrong with having the coaches be the main evaluators of potential prospects, it's a collaborative effort it won't just be the coaches doing it alone, they'll just have the main say on if the prospect is worthy of an offer.
This isn't that big of a deal.
