Groh wants quick reactions from Ga. Tech defense
Question of the Day
“Sometimes the frustration level set on them last year,” Johnson said. “We’ll find out how they handle that the first time somebody makes a few first downs and drives it down the field. Does their head go down or does somebody get ticked off and say, ‘We’ve got to stop them. This is not happening.’ That’s what we need.”
Groh, 66, was 59-53 in nine years as Virginia’s coach and was fired after a 3-9 record in 2009. He was 26-40 as Wake Forest’s coach in the 1980s and was 9-7 as the New York Jets’ coach in 2000, his only year as an NFL head coach.
Groh was an NFL assistant under Bill Parcells with the New York Giants and New England Patriots.
South Carolina State coach Buddy Pough said Groh’s Georgia Tech defense “is a bit of a mystery for us.”
Pough said he knows Groh as “a 50 guy since he was with the Giants.”
The 50 defense featured five defensive linemen and two linebackers. The 3-4 can provide a similar look when the two outside linebackers line up close to the three linemen.
“He’s always been that kind of style guy,” Pough said. “You never know how he’s changed over the years as he’s been a head coach, and how he’ll go about implementing his style of defense with the type of guys he has with Georgia Tech. We may have to adjust on the fly.”
Georgia Tech linebacker Brad Jefferson, voted a team captain, said the defense is close to feeling comfortable in the new scheme.
“We’re getting to that point. We’re still working on it,” Jefferson said last week. “We’re going to have to clutch up and get down to it. But we’re getting the feel of it.”
