There have been many complaints during recent years about how unprepared the teams seem to be especially against better opponents and how coaches seem unable to adjust effectively. Perhaps that has to do with the lack of quality control coaches and use of data to analyze the team and opponents.

After winning those two at Houston, being swept by by Charleston was rather disappointing.

Quality control coach is usually a younger position that scouts future opponents and helps get the defense or offense ready when that week comes up and assists the actual position coaches. It's how a lot of young guys get their start.
Honestly chief, in reading this, it sounds like you could have just said, "I don't know either!"   
Sounds more like a paid "Graduate Assistant"

Chief is spot-on. They can also mark and distribute game films to specific positions/players and in some cases they are in charge of the practice team(s).

So far, I am not sold on the coordinators, but there has been some good picks below that.

Evan Harvey has come over from John Carroll as a defensive quality control coach.
It has nothing much to do with this thread, but WTF does a "quality control coach" actually do?
