10-26 The Work (Coaching Search)

The information I post here may or may not have already been posted on the boards or on my Twitter, but this is what I can confirm we know right now.

**Butch is still very unlikely. He is obviously interested, but the response has been an aggressive no when his name comes up. The residue from the UNC mess hurts him here. Crazy things happen in coaching searches, but I would be very surprised.

**Rob Chudzinski remains a name in the mix. After the Cincinnati loss, Chud's name began circulating once again. He is a realistic hire, but this is not the buzz hire Miami needs.

**Opinion on Mario Cristobal is mixed. Some believe that he has learned under Saban, but others seem cautious because of his reputation of being hard to get along with.

**SEC Coaches are expressing interest in this job. Mark Stoops and Kirby Smart are two notables that we are hearing have quietly thrown their names into the hat. Other SEC assistants will emerge as well.

**Marshall's Doc Holliday is a longshot, but word is he would be interested. His buyout is not considered a major issue and he is a tremendous recruiter. Think Canes want younger though.

Pete, now that you can talk, how do you really feel about Golden?
 
WTF is wrong with these turn their nose up *****es?? Get Butch here NOW!!
 
The only news that excited me about this work is the line about SEC coaches, particularly Stoops and Smart. Mario would be a disaster. He may be forced out of Bama.
 
If I had to I would take stoops and Kirby over Chud or Mario. But we can and should do better dammit

He has killed it at Bama....so no
 
Pete, is it one guy or the majority of the decision makers that are against Butch?

The UNC thing is crazy if you look at the facts.
 
Don't let the next staff bully you.

Btw: GJ with that mail thing
 
Pete, please tell me at least the rumor is true that Frenk wants to meet with Butch to hear him out.
 
Unimpressive, much like the admin and BOT.

Get Davis already...

Pete, what's up with all the conflicting reports that If Butch provides true clearance from NCAA he's in?
 
Other than Butch, that list is awful.
Yes one of the worst lists imaginable. This is why they need to hire an elite AD and let THAT man pick the coach.

This is why we end up with trash b/c the BOT picks coaches based on politics and relationships, instead of coaching ability.

He was cleared by the NCAA but the fact that it happened under his watch is probably a concern to the admin
 
The god king returns! Petey, any notable currently employed high profile coaches at any Power 5 school (Patterson, Dantonio, Petersen, etc.) expressed any interest in the job?
