Shortly after we learned that Bill Clark would be leaving Jacksonville State for UAB back on January 21st, word started to circulate that offensive coordinator John Grass would be promoted to replace him. The choice was obvious for those close to the program.
Grass led one of the most exciting FCS offenses in the country (#25 in total offense), and nearly everyone that has played, or worked with him easily recognizes that he posses the traits that make up a quality head coach.
Here, in this video from the Gamecocks, 2013 highlights are mixed intermittently with players and coaches talk about Grass' character and how he genuinely cares for every person involved in the program.
There's no doubt that this is being shown to recruits considering Jacksonville State. The only people that may like it more than the recruits, are their parents.
