Elko's Defense against us last year held us to 282 total yards, 98 of which came on a single play (Josh Adam's huge TD run). They sacked us 3 times and held us to 111 yards passing.
If not for a goal line stand that was quickly followed by Adams big run and a pick six by Trumbetti, we are looking at a VERY close game. At the time of the game, we were in the #4 spot in the CFP rankings while Wake Forest was 3-6.

1) He is ready for a small HC gig.
2) His story was hot...he took a backup who wasn't sure he wanted to be a football player anymore and turned him into an NFL prospect...the story was starting to frey around the edges in 16, as DK has some warts, and it is only going to get worse before it gets better, as DK will struggle mightily, and publicly for the next two years if he has to start for an NFL team.
The DK story was still beneficial. Iron was hot...he struck.

Can someone make an argument For Gilmore's track record? I wouldn't bat an eye if he wasn't extended and Elko brought someone new. But maybe I'm underselling gilmore.
If you like it, ban it.

So with the defensive roster that we will have for the 2017 season and the first season under DC Mike Elko and his 4-2-5 scheme, what would the starting defense look like?
WDE: Daelin Hayes
3 Tech: Jerry Tillery??
NG: Daniel Cage
SDE: Jay Hayes/Jon Bonner
Linebackers: Nyles Morgan and one of Coney/Bilal/Martini
CB: Julian Love
FS: Devin Studstill
SS: Jalen Elliot
CB: Shaun Crawford
Rover: Drue Tranquill
Evan Sharpley had an excellent article last night that did a good job breaking down how Elko's defense works. He said don't be surprised if we see pro typical cornerbacks playing safety since coverage is at a premium in the 4-2-5. Does this mean we could see a guy like Nick Watkins or someone else get moved over? Also, he said this defense benefits hybrid guys lie Tranquill, Morgan, and Perry because they will be playing closer to the LOS instead of in coverage every play.

I am not saying we should give him another shot but he hasn't had anyone except Sheldon Day for one year that has shown to get pressure on a QB consistently. Romeo Okwara I feel improved tremendously under one year with him. Hoping maybe the young freshman D.Hayes, J. Okwara, and Kareem could show flashes next year if Gilmore is given another chance. If not, it looks like he has had some extended time on Special Teams in his tenure.
