Todd Stroud on @JJPhillips15 : "I would put Jalen Phillips in the in the 99th percentile of any player I've ever coached as far as physical attributes. He's 270 pounds and he runs like a safety... the athlete meets the hype."
A person who would know says tonight that Miami has had "serious" talks about filling the vacant chief of staff position (it exists, Todd Stroud had it briefly this year).
But no final decision has been made yet on whether to fill it -- so no decision yet on a hire, obviously.
FYI, reported back on Jan. 22 Todd Stroud would be joining 's staff in a #UMrole to be determined. I'm told he joined the staff in an advisory role in early February and then obviously was promoted to DL coach earlier this week when Jess Simpson returned to Falcons
