    He was great when he sang for The Galoots, at Linaughs .

    Never heard of him. What’s his style?

    I’m not going to pretend like I’ve watched any WVU games in a while, but from what I’ve read online it seems like they run an air raid offense

    “West Virginia was one of the top offensive teams in the Big 12 in the few years Dawson was the offensive coordinator. This season West Virginia averaged just over 500 yards per game and 33.2 points per game.”

    “Dawson has served as the Mountaineers offensive coordinator since 2012 and served as the school’s inside receivers coach in 2011. At West Virgina, Dawson worked for Air Raid disciple Dana Holgorsen. He worked as Stephen F. Austin’s offensive coordinator from 2008 to 2010.”

    From an April 2013 interview:

    “I’ve met with coordinators across the nation and some offenses have the mindset that a punt’s a great play,” Dawson said. “Their philosophy is that it’s a field-position game, so let’s get to the end and win the game. And for some of them it works.

    “But we try to score on every possession. No matter whether we’re backed up on the 1, our mindset is always the same – we want to attack. And with that mindset, if you get somebody on their heels, then you’re going to have a good day.”

      This is refreshing. Conservative play-calling usually begets conservative results. I like him so far.

      Cannot argue with that philosophy one bit, points equals wins.

    He did put up a lot at points at WV against some tough teams. But then again Brown was suppose to also. I hope this guy can do it in the SEC. Be nice to see a pass go farther than 4 yards.
