  • Say it again!

might be? As far as legitimate targets we've inquired about. Also, do you guys think that there are some currently employed head coaches they we have reached out too on the down low. Some names we haven't been discussing.

I know it is pretty far-fetched... but the same thing popped into my head earlier today.

Can you verify it? Norvell and Gus are apparently verified.

Leach, maybe.  Might as well kick the tires on Campbell and Morris too.  Wasn’t there a rumor about Fuentes being talked to last year after the bowl game?

He like Patterson is always in the conversation when Arkansas has a coaching search. I'm not sure why other than proximity to Arkansas. Gundy isn't leaving Okie State, he is a lifer. Same with Patterson at TCU.

I wish we could get him but I have to think he is the favorite to replace Dabo when Dabo leaves for Bama in a couple years.

You may be right, but I'd dang sure make him say no... a couple of times. I truly think with a really good OC he could be very successful here.

That Georgia win may have snuffed the fire that had been building under his seat.  Without that pressure he may realize that Aubbie isn’t too bad after all.

Just wait and check the Auburn message boards if he loses Saturday!

  • Is there a problem here?

Gruden, Carroll, Saban, Richt, Kelly ( Brian and Chip ), Dabo, Patterson, Petersen, Smart, Mullen,

But, they all have to be willing to come for a base salary of 1mil, with incentives kicking in at 9 regular season wins.

I would really like a proven defensive minded coach. I wish they would give a hard look a G. Schiano. He has shown that he can build a winner...had Rutgers a game away from the Natty. He can sell the NFL role being a former coach, and being a coach in the North East, Mid West, and Florida...he "should" have connections to recruiting those areas. If not him, someone with a like background. 

I would much rather have a dominate defensive team with a balanced offense versus the opposite. Look at the Team stats for total offense and total defense. 5 of the top 10 defensive teams are in the playoff hunt and 1 (South Florida) has a chance for a major bowl. Then you look at the offense side, and while there are competitive teams on there...you also have teams like: Colorado State (7-5), Toledo (9-2), Arizona (7-4), SMU (6-5), and Mizzou (6-5).

Forget it.  The fans have spoken.  We are going with Petrino and a chimpanzee as DC.

Yeah, but some of the "fans" here will cut their noses off to spite their own face too.

Charlie Strong should be at or near the top of the Arkansas list. He checks all the boxes. The ONLY knock on him is that he didn't do well at Texas.  I get it, that's a big deal but UT had major issues when he started there.  He tried to change the culture too quickly. 

He's been a successful DC at many top schools - check
Great success as a head coach at Louisville - check
Has recruiting experience in key areas for Arkansas - check
Ability to hire a great staff - check
Is from Arkansas and played college ball in the state - check

The talk on here seems to focus on Gus and Norvell but Charlie Strong may turn out to the be the best candidate with all things considered.
