Good luck to him. He’s going to need it.

Great DC, terrible HC. His buyout was $13 mil+.  Don't think for one second Texas can't afford Herman's buyout.

Too soon to send him a request for a loan?

He will make a great DC for some SEC or ACC school.

Rumor is he's very tight with Jimbo. If elko leaves i expect him to get a call. Not that he's my first choice or anything but there is a history there.

Wouldn’t be a popular hire and yes Elko days are numbered via promotion.

 

Freeze would be good hire for South Carolina. You know they were desperate if they’re doing something during COVID-19.

FWIW, Freeze has said he’s not interested. I think Billy Napier is a top prospect for USC.

Agree but they should at least offer. Freeze is probably waiting on Auburn or his quote dream job Tennessee to open up. 

Considering funding shortfalls that make the massive buyouts built into Gus’s and Pruitt’s contracts, I have serious doubts about either of those jobs opening up this year. But I could be wrong.

I meant in the future kinda surprised guys are getting fired during Covid year. The normal revenue just isn’t there.

Places like Tennessee, South Carolina, and Texas this year are great examples of stupid extensions. 
 

Nobody was going to hire Pruitt away from Tennessee. 

Expectations of winning. Most programs usually extend after a good season for fear of a more profile job or the NFL. Basically when you 💩 your willingness to try anything has no limits,

Correct. I understand nailing down a proven winner. It makes zero sense to lock a first time head coach (Pruitt) or a guy who’s moving up from the mid-majors (Herman) these massive buyout clauses. Make them prove themselves first. South Carolina should have known Muschamp was a risky hire. What about his tenure at Florida made them think he was going to take them to glory days? They still set themselves up to look stupid by giving him a big buyout. Now they’re paying him $13 million to leave.

Exactly, if a guy can’t succeed at Florida what makes you think he could win at a worse job in the same division.

Texas needs to offer when they let Herman go. 

That's the smart move...  which is why it'll never happen.

Kind of a weird one to me. 3-9, 4-8, 6-7, 5-7, 6-7, 3-9, 0-8. Take out the James Franklin years and 6 wins with a bowl game is huge for Vandy. Looks like they got a QB in the freshman. Maybe they’ll go with a offensive guy to maximize his talent.

If Auburn loses to Mississippi State next week, the “fire Gus” cries will be louder than ever. Tennessee still has to play A&M, which could very easily leave them finishing with four straight losses, two of which are blowouts. I don’t think Jeremy Pruitt survives that.  The question is: who do they hire? I think we’re going to find out how committed Hugh Freeze is to Liberty University.

No, Muschamp to aTm would not be a popular hire.  Especially knowing his sentiments about the town of College Station and the Aggies in general

If Tennessee opens then I will be shocked if Freeze does not take that job.
