Blasquez is to remain for now but will be assessed for fit with coaching staff as they work with players in the coming weekes and is subject to change.
The "rope coach" is Kevin Parker and he's a recruiting coordinator. He's been retained, as have most of the support staff. He's an important bridge between players and coaches and is always a trusted confidante to many players on the team each year.
He's also probably the main person responsible for Marshawn ending up at Cal as well as several other players and is worthy of more respect than the rope guy tag many have put on him.
