I'm not so sure this is listed in order of probability, mainly just a straight up list.

I just don't understand why there's been little talk of Brent Venables.
He was at Oklahoma for what 12 years - so he's got recruiting connections in Oklahoma and Texas.

Just figured he would be in discussion.

Definitely Gus.  But, if for some unknown reason Gus falls through, it is Norvell.

No head coaching experience, but I agree that he would be worth a close look and perhaps even a chance to become Arkansas.s next coach.  Would not disappoint me.

They are probably right about Norvell being the top choice though. I just don't see the BOT agreeing to pay Gus's $7,000,000 buyout and then offering him 5+ Million a year to get him. They're already on the hook for Long's 4 Million dollar Buyout along with Bret's 6 Million dollar buyout so I just don't see it.

He is literally on nobody's list. Maybe kstate because he went there. Should be a red flag.

No offense to Norvell but what has he accomplished?  Could he put together a staff that could compete in the SEC?

It's funny how the experts differ. On the Finebaum show they said our list and best fits are Norvell, the mentioned Gus, almost jokingly and they mentioned Strong. In this list Strong is a long shot. I tend to agree that he is a long shot. It also seems This writer may know at least a little as he included Skip. I've not seen anything nationally that includes skip. I don't think he is in our top 5 but the mere fact that he is mentioned gave this writer a little credibility.

This guy is a duplicate of Gus. Just a lot cheaper. I don't want him but his offense is very very similar to Gus. I know he studied under Gus. Morris has good ties to Texas recruiting as he was a high school coach there for years. His career path is very similar to Gus. He may wind up at a&m someday.

At one point everyone who is now a somebody was a nobody. Norvell is a great coach. Have there been talks with Gus? Yes. Is UA gonna pay what he wants, plus buyouts? No. Sexton will get him a big raise and extension. Norvell will be our coach. Just be prepared. If I’m wrong, I’ll eat the crow that is served, but I’m pretty sure I won’t be.

Yes he is.  Whether it will at Arkansas or not I don't know.  I would not like to be facing his teams for the next 25 years.

I understand the hesitancy, but why not give him a shot?
A: There are zero guarantees in coaching hires.
B: We've tried -- and failed -- at the "big name" coach hire.
C: He's young, hungry and has a fire about him.

There is literally nothing to lose. We can NOT be worse than the last 6 year stretch. I say give him the keys and get out of his way. The only way he fails is if the GOBN gets in his way.

I am just glad Fuentes, who went to az state and got his offense from Norvell, didn't stick around and get an SEC job also..  These two plus Riley are the kind of young guns that are going be very good head coaches in the future.  You can either get on board for the future or get left at the station.

1. Norvell- Yes
2. Morris- Yes
3. Leach-No  Never had a D. May as well switch to the Big 12 if we're going to hire him.
4. Gus- No, but would support him if selected
5. Holtz (Skip)- Meh Barely above 500 win %
6. Campbell- Yes
7. Brown from Troy- Yes
8. Les Miles-No  but always had a strong defense
9. Frost- Yes
10. Strong - Meh. Based on L'ville and USF?Yes. Based on Tejas? A big NO.

Yeah, at first I thought that site was really good.  Over time you come to realize, they basically write stories of what is printed on message boards or state papers.  It does not appear that they have very many direct sources themselves.

He's 13-22 so far at SMU and Memphis just scored 66 points on his defense Saturday.
