I'm doing great they should make it time where this so may do you get the job in three weeks later you got your first sighting they what has this whirlwind. Has it been a whirlwind I guess has brought the best word I can come up with a bit like that for these last three oddly some. Yeah Serb press conference doesn't the as significant it was a whirlwind that I can plug it bothers a whirlwind book. There's been great we hit the ground running had a great plan but I got to do schools got a little said the kids couple visits and problems because you're well. No actual football congress characters are really great it's for a program move forward. So obviously it's the first day of the early signing period at which I imagine was a big challenge in that as I mentioned you've been there about three weeks now. Moving and up from the traditional February signing day was that a benefit for you do you just make it a little bit more hectic get your thoughts on the early signing period no. A lot of coaches are out on that what do you think. Yeah I'll come split gonna be below the more time to come up. Go sit back and and reflect all open it's good in the sense that kids who've been committed for a long Coptic Pope at the paper it's you know be. Bill locked into the school when at the same town with the coaching changes and you know on the asserting that goes along with rather our staff they have digital visits and they're not certain position coach could be present some problems outweighed. And there's a little bit of a ripple effect worried that I kind of pushed Calvin back globally to talk about today's official visits to move those of the springs so. In older you work goes. That's got to backtrack a little bit now obviously you had a lot of offers after your tremendous sense of Fordham. 32 and eight in a final copy years get a lot of big things at Penn State as the offensive coordinator there won a bunch of games there what made the fit in this job. In stark feel right for you. Too good of an opportunity to paso and with any job opportunity considered three criteria personal professional monetary unit checked off all the boxes mostly it was called bullet that there's a competitor. What putter covered so the FTC BS EC west. Protester middle uprooted you know you could go to global and it was you know it'd fit everything that we are local four in those say it would. Known as an offensive mastermind in your coaching days they don't like that if you could put that in a billboard think. Tiger tees have been explosive they've been to balance and I know Bulldog fans and I've got one my producer on the other side of the glass drooling at the prospects of what you can deal when you get your hands on Mick FitzGerald. Once he gets fully healthy question one how's he doing and it without being able utilized him in spring ball does that set anything back that you wanna get put in its. Well a little bit I mean you know organist or office. As if you were all being ill obviously we got dictates he ready so the other guys lose. You know lots of silt on the conceive and compete over the Gaza Warner are very pleased gave the way it's meant to be played he can beat you with his legs his dormant spray. You know busts open coach Prada were set to give him that the system. Get a roll on it. It was succeeded a great job front of the ball last year epic or were still picked up passing game ripped up veto the way we elect pushed all of the field to shops and they get these receivers and tight ends gold epic. Biggest will be there's some of the people are excited about. Talking with first year head football coach at Mississippi State Joseph morehead so what was signing like Dave for you today and they got fifteen commits in a big area of concern that you quickly go to comedy and was wide receivers you were able to address that quickly got 34 star recruits including the number one. Junior college wide out and Stefan Gator. It was it was great across the board. You know edit speed up loses some play making ability skill positions on both sides of the ball and it's not a physically LB you know the episode of the from Kabul also to be sort of so. Those three receivers as you mentioned you can walk in he's. You know big physical presence uncle with a 1000 ball. Excellent ball skills could change direction to burst into those because you don't play three receivers that have real field at all times. Or does become living completely Plato about six Adobe's special. I know you're able to plant a flag here in Memphis which is always been a traditional recruiting ground. Four state as well getting Davone Robinson out of white haven what do you like about that young man. And he's big he's physical he's fast enough because this book also vote secure coaches out there is an excellent job of open them. The policy it log issues success at that school and I think with Aurora took because courted because a lot of could trigger being able to work with some I think he's ago it's really kind of blossoms they have given to a cult program and no recruit all the benefits of you know playing ball full time but I think he's accused. You know limit the potential to be rude nuclear force level out. What was the biggest challenge for you getting ready for the signing day as yours still getting used to who where you are down in in stark bill and filling out a staff look at the current teams get ready for a bowl game. I imagine you gotta be pretty good at time management. Yeah you gotta compartmentalizing. Going to be sufficient to meet you Kate major the mothers of that two big things together have a plan that stick to it. And really it's about you know there's the one thing that you. Is the biggest challenge was continent just not a level that's so we gotta do good joke at bouncy and or commit some. Don't talk about personal coaches and see their parents and out of middle official visits. While simultaneously trying to hire staff to look for the most part is either in the midst of a bull run or. Or played any NFL and then did it you know you know go do all the other things is that in the first hundred days Olympic coach does that. Necessitated tensions started in the county circuit district is receiving don't what art is practiced or during bowl prep so. No it was it was a full company never put you know well work with I think Allred reward move forward. How does today eight change going for what you hope to accomplish by the next signing period and in February where I saw that you estimate you had about four or five scholarships you're thinking to play with. Yeah and that covers polluted in the world what I'd say that because I think every school to be essentially the same boat that you may have kids who have been committed. It is to you but didn't do too subtle early period it's still wanna side. The end or you have opened scholarships from raiding it used to recruit a couple guys that spot so. You're really helping that child to be salute situation you know lol you know prioritized. You know publicly to us and our beat him in Jamaica pushed them. You know to give the other former. So we're disable the February so they have to do jump sort overnight he's so we'll be close because it was. I'm David coaching long enough to recognize Mamie got take their own backyard first make that a priority you certainly did with this class signing reportedly five of the top players in the state coronet. One of the recruiting services Sid obviously that was impressed upon you quickly manic guy coming here and we got a lock down a state of Mississippi. Absolutely the person presidency appears it was it was even Libyan people took precedence. He's thousands. Are glad to be pretty quickly but obviously with our recruiting modeled our philosophy. You know it's local it's primary and secondary C got a Swedish state you gotta win the areas that are useful print you know counted in the two hour radius. Video do a great job outside of that. You know identifying. Cultivate relationships in. You know just. President you can differentiate. Differentiate yourself from what school so he's definitely got a would save Mississippi got a wonderful precarious. And good job there was in two hours than either do ruled good job outside of you know recruitment specialists. Talk with tales state. Head coach Joseph Warren ladies on Twitter at ball coach Joseph Mo cannot. I like to handle our how much it it'd be any says it band as you give in instead went to try to get a good look at what you have. Up close and personal on the practice field because you've got the team get ready for the bowl game. It's been good embed goodness senses he gets syndicate run around that the coach Knox is definitely due to. Fantastic job in the prepared or able to be honest I literally at the front Ali roster. By the broke the school web site show you know names and numbers he'd hoped to see faces of the cuter and another build in one of the things. This happened I've done is we've. So aside a few hours every night decision. It is just pick out a few games from last season the walked two or three of those at the time that they'll come together that group beetle on you know who we have what they can do it so could we see the practice watchable tape that will give the wanna work outs or have a good foundation to build up short. The first credible. Last question before we let you go what what comes next now say you got that there early part of the early signing period taking care of you still get ready for the bowl game in. In observing there and you still have a staff that put together. For the most part what comes next on the agenda of the priority list that you got. Pacers yes all these but the clubhouse who were ordered to do stuff also got for Christmas of those in this profession. We did come off the comes in bunches and I think it's important first up to decompress and get a rather.
