Fall practice starts next week! We’re celebrating football being back by counting down to kickoff using content-specific pieces every weekend to deliver the good stuff — last-minute primer involving all 14 SEC teams.

Up next: Introducing the league’s most impressive coordinator hires this offseason, acquisitions that should mean near instantaneous success for their respective teams:

SEC’s five best ‘new’ coordinators

5. Jon Hoke, DC, South Carolina: It wasn’t Will Muschamp like several media outlets erroneously speculated, but Steve Spurrier found the play-caller on defense he was looking for in February when the Gamecocks landed Hoke, the Head Ball Coach’s former assistant at Florida. Hoke, who shares the defensive coordinator title with Lorenzo Ward, made significant changes during the spring including the addition of more zone coverages and frequent blitzing.

4. Dan Enos, OC, Arkansas: Promising more quarterback involvement is one thing, but making it happen in one of the nation’s top rushing offenses is another. Since his arrival in January, Enos has praised veteran starter Brandon Allen and wants to run the offense through the senior passer at times this fall. Equipped with college football’s only returning 1,000-yard rushers in the same backfield, Enos will try and take the Razorbacks to new heights this fall with awareness through the air as a coach who has produced a 3,000-yard passer four out of the last five seasons.

3. Brian Schottenheimer, OC, Georgia: The former NFL OC has big shoes to fill after Mike Bobo led the Bulldogs to program record-setting offensive totals last season, but there’s little room for excuses considering the firepower returning. The most intriguing dynamic concerning this year’s offense is who Schottenheimer will pick (with Mark Richt’s help) to start at quarterback. He’s a run-first playcaller and will employ a similar pro-style system indicative of Bobo-coached offenses that best fits his passer’s skill set. As a viewer, you won’t notice many changes as long as this offense continues to run through Nick Chubb.

2. John Chavis, DC, Texas A&M: Any coach who dominates Johnny Manziel and corrals his playmaking ability twice should be considered one of the best among his peers. The Chief’s reputation as a longtime defensive guru in the SEC precedes him and the Aggies made a splash of a hire. Chavis has the pieces to be successful — a fierce defensive line led by the league’s returning sack leader and a feisty youth-laden secondary intent on a better showing this fall.

1. Will Muschamp, DC, Auburn: The hottest ticket at the end of last season, the Muschamp Sweepstakes went to Auburn for a cool $1.6 million annually, a bargain if the former Florida coach and respected defensive personality leads the Tigers to a College Football Playoff berth. He brings a tenacious spirit to the Auburn defense it didn’t possess under Ellis Johnson and a return to the physicality needed in the Western Division. It’ll be interesting to follow the SEC’s new defensive coordinator dynamic this fall, especially Muschamp vs. Chavis when the two meet on Nov. 7 to determine which program still has something to play for down the stretch.
