  • If Gruden to Tenn, Kelly to Florida, and Fisher to A&M then this league is taking a serious step up.

    Only 1 of those is possible imo. Tenner always runs their mouth about gruden but end up with Dooley and butch. Isn't jimbos buyout north of 20 mil?

    If fired, it is $39 million.  If he leaves, around $7 million.  A&M can afford $7 million.  Fisher has been rumored to be looking for a while.  Could have gone to LSU.

  • While he won a NC, I think Fisher is overrated as coach. He reminds me of Miles.

  • I don't think Jimbo could go to a mid tier program and be successful.  But he can recruit and is a good offensive coach who would probably make A&M more physical on both sides which is what they need.  That is if he could find enough kids in Texas now willing and able to do it.  If Les could be trusted to not screw up the QB position, he would make A&M better.  Same region to recruit.  But cannot trust Les' teams will have competent QB play after what happened at LSU.

    Fisher to A&M yes, but the others are complete question marks.  Everyone loves Gruden, but who knows how Gruden would do in the SEC when he hasn't coached in college since he was a TE coach at Pacific in 1989.  I think Kelly is a pretty good college coach and will have success in Florida, but he is coming off bombing out of the NFL and doesn't really has souther ties. I know he didn't have PNW ties either, and that worked out pretty well, but you never know.

  • Saw an article last week comparing A&M to FSU in terms of resources.  Not even close.  A&M could pay $10 mil per year if they wanted to and have much larger assistant coach salary pool as well.

    Doubtful Gruden goes to Tennessee.  If he returns to coaching, it will probably be in the NFL.

    Due to Tennessee's recruiting environment/situation, they are almost forced to hire a good recruiter.

    There is a 62 page thread over on a Tennessee message board of top 3 candidates, and a lot of Tennessee fans have Brent Venables listed.  Venables is an elite recruiter.

    If Fisher does go to A&M instead of Chad Morris, then Morris may be heavily considered by Tennessee.  Morris has already recruited heavily in the geographical area where Tennessee has to recruit (when Morris was at Clemson).

    Tee Martin is another good recruiter that may be considered by Tennessee.

  • If Jimbo can't build a monster, much like Bama, or TOSU at FSU, with all of the talent in the state of Florida alone, then "assuming we get a competent coaching staff" Jimbo Fisher at A&M doesn't worry me.
    Now, Kelly at UF, that makes one stop and think DAYUM, Florida went BIG!

    Things are getting interesting......

    FSU has had a miserable two years and their fans want him out.  Cant field a good O-line and his D sucks.  He has stuck with a couple of long-time assistant coaches that aren't doing him any favors.

    Tennessee really wants to hire a big name. They may look to Campbell if Mullen decides to stay. Many of their fans would prefer lane kiffin over an up and comer. I just hesitate to believe that they go after a coordinator or an up and comer like morris or norvell. Frost...maybe. tee Martin makes sense as he is loved in the state by many. Imagineif Peyton manning decided to try it out. I doubt he would risk his legacy at UT but no doubt he would be a big name hire.

    BP would be ahead of schedule if he goes to Tenner since this is only his third year at UL.  LMAO

    I would not be surprised if Tee gets the job.

    He is WAY better than Leslie, although I don't think he is a great HC.

    Posters on here slobber all over Gruden for unknown reasons. He is SUPER OVER-RATED! As a Raider fan, I was glad to get 3 draft picks and get him gone.

    The problem was, Al Davis was the one making the hire to replace him and totally botched it, not once, but several times.

    Without the foundation laid by Dungy, Gruden never would have won a Super Bowl. As Dungy's players aged or moved on, the worse they got under the little charlatan Gruden.

  • Eventually ADs are going to get sick of paying millions on millions to make changes every 4-5 years, just to see same results.

    I know I am as a college football fan.
  • #21 by GoHogs1091 on 14 Nov 2017
  • I would take Matt Campbell over Kelley or Fisher.

    Campbell is a good Coach.

    As far as outright coaching ability alone, the following are probably the best available regarding just outright coaching ability (in order from the most best).

    Brent Venables
    Matt Campbell
    Chad Morris
    Scott Frost
    Neal Brown

    Venables and Morris also bring in the recruiting aspect that a lot of football programs are desperate to get solved.

    While Campbell is a very good Coach, it is difficult to know whether or not he can recruit well enough down here in this part of the country.

    On coaching ability alone, Campbell is a better coach than Chip Kelley.  Kelly has already proven that he can't get it done against SEC competition (he lost to both LSU and Auburn when he was at Oregon).

    don't have the link handy but i saw an article a few hours ago that stated strongly that there will be no gruden at tenn.

    Yeah, but IIRC people on this board did the same thing about Gruden when Bielema was hired.

  • for the long term Campbell for the short term Fisher  about recruiting I agree that it is the lifeblood of successful programs BUT take Ron Zook.  Great recruiter at  Florida and pretty good at  Illinois (same with Orgeron).  You have to be able to take that talent and do something with it or get a staff that can do that.

    Same here.  As far as I am concerned he played a likely rapist at QB.  National championship and all...
