2018-19 College Coaching Changes

Recommended Posts

Already reading that Mack Brown is a candidate at UNC. I wonder if they go after our coach. He was their OC for a few years, however he's a Fedora/Leach  guy.

Hearing Kendal Briles will interview for the Texas State job.

Texas Tech officially open. Press conference coming at 3ET. 

Do they keep with the hurry up, air raid approach or go for someone with more of a pro-style approach?  If they do, then the 2 Oklahoma schools and WVU will be the only air raid/hurry up teams left.

I think they should go with the approach that Baylor, ISU, and Texas did. 

Maybe hire the ISU DC and hire Mehringer from Texas as OC (lol wishful thinking).

That’d be a interesting crew in Chapel Hill.

2 names I've seen mentioned with the Tech job are Oregon DC Jim Leavitt and Utah State HC Matt Wells.

If Kendal Briles gets the Texas St job, the Texas WR coach could go to Houston. Mehringer interviewed for that job last year, might even take Warehime with him

His salary is 2.9 million at West Virginia. 

 

That is a lateral move at best though IMO.

Issues or not, WVU ain’t a bad job. Tech has gone the mad genius route with Leach. The leave the kid at dinner, you pay the tab, I’m gone to Cincy route with Tubberville. The fan favorite route with Kliff. I’m real curious to see how they go with this hire. There’s one hire that 5 years ago might have been a perfect fit, sure fire home run. Is Lubbock far enough out of the scope for them to think about actually doing it? They did hire Bob Knight.

At some point, the LSU DC should be getting some serious consideration for some of these jobs, although I don’t think TT is the right place for him. Silly season in the SEC is going to be extremely quiet this year. A&M, Arkansas, Mizzou, Florida, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Miss State are still in honeymoon, and everyone else met or exceeded expectations. Vanderbilt is bowl eligible, but I think the rich folks over there will only stomach one trip to Birmingham. The only fan base truly unhappy with their coach is Auburn, and they’re stuck with Gus for at least two more years to get that buyout down to a number they can afford.

What’s nice for him is that he paid like a HC already.

Dabo Swinney threatens to leave Clemson after hearing criticism following win over South Carolina https://t.co/31bUdZ3okd

 

Dabo not leaving unless Bama becomes open IMO but I see why he's fed up with some of the fanbase, winning makes some folks act like spoiled brats.

Very odd move for UNC, imo. Several up and coming coaches that this would be an ideal fit for.

I will be interested to see who the coordinator hires are.

This. I believe he’ll hire someone that will be a HC in waiting once Mack gets the program headed in the right direction.

I would consider Kingsbury if he wants a OC job .

They better be really good. Otherwise, this seems like a backwards move for the program to me.

as a Longhorn fan (liked Mack), I think UNC is just trying to recapture some of the good from the past. Mack is a great recruiter in that he is that good old country grandpa that can come into your house and can tell mama and daddy that your baby is gonna be safe and play a lot of important ball while now showing that National Championship ring from UT. he'll probably have Chizek and Kingsbury as DC/OC for 1 year until they move on to HC gigs...atleast Kliff will. UNC will compete better.
