I would love it to be Chris Klieman just to see all the heads explode here.

Other than me enjoying that Iíd feel more relaxed with Morris as HC.

Klieman is one of the best coaches in this era.

The same way he moved from Bill Snyder and his alma mater K-State to work with his friend Bob Stoops. Maybe he'd like to work with Morris again, and move closer to home, and make $2.5M.

Moving from Kansas State to OK is a massive promotion. That's not what he'd be doing here.

Venables was a household name long before he arrived at Clemson.

Nothing like he is now.

K-State went 11-1 in 1999 and in the National title hunt when Venables left. OU was at the end of a decade of suck.

In fact there's a lot of similarity between Arkansas and both of his previous moves so far. OU and Clemson both were historically strong programs that were struggling when he went there.

Chad Glasgow TCU...

I agree.  I posted this in another thread yesterday...

After reviewing the resumes of potential Defensive Coordinator's - Gene Chizik in his last post as a DC at Auburn hired some Superstar recruiters not to mention having a stellar D.

He would easily load the Defensive side of the ball with elite talent.

I've wondered about his ability without a bag man..

I just hope it's someone worthy of the six question mark headline.

Did you post it the same way on River Valley Leader, Mark?

Posted on another thread but I think it may end up being Kevin Steele.

Kevin Steele overlapped with Morris at Clemson, has coached at Alabama under Saban and Clemson under Dabo. Now is Auburn's DC. Has done a great job at Auburn, but if he has any friction with Malzahn or any concerns at Auburn (reminder it looked like the staff was going to get fired last year early on), he might be interested in moving.

He's coached in Louisiana, Florida, Oklahoma and Texas -- some or all of which would be fertile areas for recruiting for Arkansas. He knows Morris and the kind of culture he is trying to build. This seems like it would be a very strong hire -- and at least an outside possibility.

Unfortunately, we probably won't know until the Bama and A&M DC situations are sorted out. I'd love to have Chavis, his philosophy of never having enough defensive speed on the field aligns perfectly with Morris. At 61 though, he has said A&M was probably his last stop.

Does Aubbie have a non-compete for coordinators like we did?

They donít.

However Steele is related to the Asst AD at Auburn and Steele has had health issues. I donít expect him to be a candidate.

Also Steele gave up 70 in their last game together

since there is this delay in naming a dc, I would say it is one that is in a bowl, probably a big time bowl

The longer this goes without a named DC the more curious I become.

WHO:
Is it somebody still coaching a CF Playoff team who doesn't want it out?
Is it somebody still coaching a CF NY Six Bowl Team who doesn't want it out?
Is it an NFL DC with a team still in playoff contention?

RECRUITS:
We've seen a glimpse into what they're publicly saying, but what, if anything, are they keeping secret?
How do you convince a guy like Ladarius Bishop to change (unless he wanted to come here all along) without giving him details?

TEAM:
Do they know?
What is their attitude toward waiting?

WHEN:
Will it be before the early signing date?
How soon after the NY6 and CFP games?
How will waiting affect this year's recruiting? Does it matter?
Is there a point in which the fans lose patience? Does it matter?

There are a million more questions, but I will just have to wait. #HammerDown #WPS

I would have to think this wouldnít be high stakes enough to delay a DC or position coach from leaving. I can see the others though. Odds are itís some 4th reason we are oblivious to.

Wasnít that long ago Jeremy Pruitt was a HC DC
But is is less long ago that he was a DC at Bama.  If we take a DC out of high school, that hire will and should be considered a failure.

I think this would be a good hire but I wonder how much is him and how much is Patterson.

I disagree. The early signing period is less than 2 weeks way. Any head coach worth his salt will want to have his DC on the job and recruiting before that signing period so the Defensive recruits will know who their DC is UNLESS the DC he's hired is such a high caliber DC that he's willing to wait till January for him to join the staff. Morris has not hired 1 single defensive assistant coach yet and that speaks volumes this close to the early signing period.

I think I might not have been clear. Iím saying that a NY six bowl isnít a big enough deal for those teams for us to be delaying hiring a DC or Assistant of those teams. A playoff team NFL or NCAA would be though. It also points more toward a sitting DC then a rising Position Coach.

I agree with your statement, itís highly odd and might be telling that the D side is empty at a critical point.

Thanks. Itís just fun to chew on all the possibilities and yeah, youíre probably right that it is a super secret 4th or 5th other question/option.

From another thread but relevant here ...

I spent a few hours this evening going through the DCs that CCM faced in his time at Clemson and at SMU along with those he worked with at Clemson. I paid special attention to those who he lost to or held him under the average game. Basically what a coach would think was a tough defense after the game. I'll leave off the Jeremy Pruitt's of the list since his new job probably means he isn't a viable candidate. Here's the list I came up with along with a few possible scenarios.

John Chavis - he could be retained at A&M or he could retire
Charles Kelly - he could end up at A&M or could be available although he seems to be fading
Don Brown - DC at Michigan currently.
Bud Foster - AHC/DC at Va Tech who I can't see leaving although if Fuente is forcing him out because he wants his own program then it could be a potentiality.
Galen Scott - AHC/Safeties... he was Fuente's DC at Memphis and perhaps he's ready to get back to a DC role. Could be reason for Foster to be forced out or Scott to want to leave. A doubt that he'd be a shocker to the CFB world or possibly be ready for SEC.
Brian VanGorder - he's a defensive analyst at Oklahoma State and after his dismissal from Notre Dame I doubt he'd fit the hints Morris gave us
Lorenzo Ward - currently a secondary coach at Louisville ... again not really fitting the narrative laid out
Kevin Steele - DC at Clemson during Morris' first year. This would be VERY interesting given the recent history between Arkansas and Auburn in regard to coaching searches... makes for some good message board fodder. (Current DC at Auburn)
Brent Venables - He most likely isn't coming and if he is I'd want this to be the narrative anyway... there's no way he's coming. He fits the narrative and the longer we go without a DC being named the better chance it's him but most likely it's someone in a bowl game who doesn't want to be distracted from the task at hand.
Mike Stoops - Not Riley's guy and was facing some heat earlier this year.... possibility?
Marion Hobby - currently with Jacksonville Jaguars... is 1 year in the NFL enough for him and he wants to come back to the college game?

There are definitely two names on there that would be a shock: Foster and Venables... maybe even Steele

Stoops would be a surprise as would Hobby or Brown.

Chavis or Kelly seem to be the most reasonable since they are both looking for jobs but if it were then there is no need to wait.

Obviously this doesn't take into account the DC's he has admired from afar and I wouldn't be too surprised if it's someone off the radar.

And if I take Porktarian's ... I mean Wally's last tweet as a hint then I could see these guys as candidates:
Bob Diaco - winner
Don Brown - winner
John Chavis - winner
Brent Venables - winner
Bud Foster - winner
Brian VanGorder - winner
Kevin Steele
Gene Chizik - winner

Quite a bit of overlap in those two lists.
