    Its tough to see a fan favorite in Hardy Nickerson go, especially since linebacking wasnt a problem. It must be a scheme thing or maybe Hardy was a Lovie guy and didn’t want to stick around. It would be interesting to hear his comments.

      Did Hardy leave on his own like Cullen or was he let go?

      LB not a problem? What caused David to disappear?

        hardy and cullen were the only coaches on defense retained after firing lovie… with cullen being denied other interviews… so i believe it was a Koetter/Smith decision to go with their own guys
