CBS Sports evaluates open SEC coaching positions

Postby G8RNGA » Mon Nov 26, 2012 12:16 pm

I'm not surprised to see Petrino or Strong mentioned for several of these positions, but what was surprising was to see Jimbo Fisher on the list for ANY of the SEC open coaching positions! Really?!

I'd love to see Charlie Strong coaching in the SEC. The opportunity may be available, but I wonder if he's interested. Petersen probably won't jump to the SEC and Gruden will have many opportunities in the NFL at the end of the season if he wants to enter coaching again.

This is how they have it:
Arkansas
Who it should call first: Chris Petersen (head coach, Boise State), Jon Gruden (ESPN analyst, former NFL coach), Gus Malzahn (head coach, Arkansas State), Art Briles (head coach, Baylor).

Auburn:
Who it should call first: Charlie Strong (head coach, Louisville), Malzahn, James Franklin (head coach, Vanderbilt), Jimbo Fisher (head coach, Florida State), Chad Morris (offensive coordinator, Clemson).

Kentucky:
Who it should call first: Kliff Kingsbury (offensive coordinator, Texas A&M), Bobby Petrino (former head coach at Arkansas, the Atlanta Falcons and Louisville), Sonny Dykes (head coach, Louisiana Tech), Willie Taggart (head coach, Western Kentucky).

Tennessee:
Who it should call first: Strong, Gruden, Fisher, Bob Stoops (head coach, Oklahoma), Gary Patterson (head coach, TCU), Dan Mullen (head coach, Mississippi State).

I've been harping about the Jimbo to Auburn move for a while. I think he's a logical choice.

Malzahn is obvious for the Hogs b/c he's already in the state, but he's obvious for Auburn for obvious reasons.

I really don't see Bobby leaving OU for Knoxville. With all the stories when we hired Coach Boom about Stoops' wife hating Norman (reason for him leaving for UF - but then, Foley never considered him after all), maybe, but maybe she's used to it by now. And besides, why take over the mess that is Tennessee?

I think that Dykes is a sure bet for UK.

Strong may want to come to the SEC by taking Auburn, but I really wonder who's going to want AU's open spot, what with the possibility of probation looming. I see Strong more as a fit for Tennessee.

Charlie only mentioned for Auburn? Didn't they pass on him last time since they didn't like his white wife?

My uneducated guesses in red.

He was also mentioned for Tennessee.

I don't see a ranking of open coaching positions.

It wouldn't be open coaching season without Stoops on somebody's list. Sooner or later, people will wisen up.

This is a serious question: Why would any team want Jimbo Fisher? He's accomplished absolutely nothing. He's done less with more than anyone in college football. A real coach would have that FSU team completely dominating the embarrassing ACC.

I agree with this. It's not like he wasn't recruiting for this team when he was the "HC in waiting" and he was basically running the show for Bowden anyway. His body of work at FSU is not good enough, IMO, to warrant a head coaching job change.

It's not even that his body of work isn't good enough - it's actually poor. For the conference they are in, it is a bad, unacceptable body of work. I don't see why any other school would look at him and think, "That's who we want to turn us around!"

Frankly, he should be fired. And since he's also a lousy offensive coordinator (like he was at LSU), he shouldn't be able to find a job doing that, either. In a just world, he'd latch on somewhere as a position coach.

I think this was just internet rumors at its finest. While everyone was saying this they were in the middle of building a freaking monster of a house in Norman. Doubt they would be doing that if her disliking Norman so much would influence him enough to leave...just sayin...

The 46th ranked offenses he's been in charge of, as a career average, doesn't excite you? :lol:

Stoops is the best at leveraging any open coaching position into a pay raise at Okie.
