there's no question he's chewing them out behind closed doors. The media is no place for a coach to admonish his team, and neither is an email to alums.

I think it's perfectly OK to say "we need to value the ball more, we need to play better on special teams, we need to be ready before the first whistle, and we need to have the team better prepared."

There needs to be a clear, consistent message of expectations for the program, what is acceptable and what is not. That message should not vary from private to public. It won't (and shouldn't) be expressed in the same terms or at the same volume, and I'm not saying he should call out individuals.

But saying "I'm impressed" doesn't strike me as the message you want to send.

Players, family, and friends read the media. They see what he says.  There should be no mixed message.

It's a small thing, but I don't think it's insignificant.
