Knows a lot about defensive schemes and is experienced. Something seems to be lacking in close games and situations. Presents himself as a far different person to the media than within the team. Does not offer equal opportunity to scholarship and non-scholarship players, regardless of skill level.

Well, he's definitely a great defensive mind. However, I don't think he is that great of a head coach. Many of his interpersonal interactions come off as fake. In addition, he's not shy about letting you know who his favorites are.

Derek Mason is a great coach overall. Only critique I would give is for him to let his veteran players have more input into how things should go from a football perspective.

Great defensive mind at times but is indecisive on what and who he wants. Isn't a great judge of talent. Has trouble at times translating what he wants from the class to the grass.

He's more worried about being cool, than actually caring for his players.
