Gundy says he'll have final vote on play-calling in bowl

By Mike Baldwin Published: December 27, 2007

s primary job on game day is to identify defensive coverages to help determine which play is called. Luper, Brewer and Wickline will remain on the field.

"There's that old adage if it's not broke don't fix it,” Meacham said. "Right now, all the pieces are in place. In my opinion, if you change something wholesale, you take a big step backward.”

Who calls plays next season is a separate issue. Gundy hired Tennessee wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor as co-offensive coordinator last week. But Taylor is known more for his recruiting than drawing up a game plan.

"We'll expand on it and get better at it,” Meacham said. "Spur-of-the-moment calls, checks (to a new play), Larry always called those. But there are a lot of times he could absorb all suggestions where everyone kicks in some ideas.

"I'm not taking anything away from what Larry did. He made the bulk of the calls. He ran the show. He's a great coach, a great coordinator. I learned a lot from him, his organizational skills, his work ethic. The biggest thing is to teach your players the game plan.”
