Well, my worst fear has been confirmed. Arizona Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops announced that Seth Littrell will be calling the plays next season. Coach Robert Anae will be the offensive line coach and 'running game coordinator'. Seriously? Ok, let me take a breath here. Maybe count to ten.... Nope, still don't get it. In what world did coach Littrell's play calling warrant him keeping the job in the 2011 season? You have the luxury of having a proven play caller and offensive coordinator in coach Anae, and he won't be calling the plays. Huh?
I truly believe that coach Stoops has a much better understanding of football and coaching than I will ever possess. I'm just going to have to have faith that he has made the correct decision here. There is one fact that is inarguable, however. Every time that Arizona loses a game next season there will be open criticism of Littrell's play calling, and justifiably so.
