Raiders fire DLC Brenston Buckner, officially hire Rod Marinelli as DLC and Austin King as OQC

Recommended Posts

We really liked him because he got his units to perform everywhere he went. Marinelli is a very good coach as well but Buckner didn't deserve to be fired.

He doesn’t teach technique. He is purely a motivational coach. As a position coach, you need to teach technique. Period. It’s how guys get better. He strictly coasts on his talented DL. As BP said, Maxx and Ferrell are ridiculously talented. 
 

You guys just like his personality on Hard Knocks smh. Buckner is not a good coach.

I was always in the minority that thought Buckner was terrible. Didn’t voice it out much cause this forum really liked him.. probably cause he has a “cool” personality. All he did was do motivational talks. He is not a technique teacher what so ever. He is KNJ of DL coaches. 
 

Imagine what Maxx can do with a real DL coach. Can’t wait. 

Course you did.

Firing the LB coach does nothing. They have to have talent to coach. 

Fans make WAY to big a deal over positional coaches. They are only as good as the talents afforded them.

And of course you liked him. Just like you loved KNJ. Non technique teachers are your absolute favorites who you rush to defend.

No need to say anymore.

A "real DL coach" lol. Buckner is a good positional coach. Crosby is a good player with a lot of intangibles. He was going to do his thing regardless of whom the coach is.

And you're forgetting that Maxx talked very HIGHLY of Buckner for his development so....

It's not that he deserved to be fired, it's that a great D coach/teacher happened to hit the market. Upgrading coaches is never a bad idea.
