Just an FYI for anyone interested,  in Clay Travis's column today he predicts which jobs will be open and which coach will fill it:

"Hereís my prediction on who each school hires: Florida: Scott Frost, Tennessee: Dan Mullen, UCLA: Chip Kelly, Nebraska: Mike Leach, Arkansas: Mike Norvell, and Texas A&M: Chad Morris."

I agree, it does seem like it would work.  I know coaching hires isn't an exact science but he ticks most of the boxes I am personally looking for.  Experience would be my biggest concern, but sometimes you just have to take a gamble.

Yeah, he's a bit of an ass and I think a lot of the time he says stuff more for the effect than the credibility; but he - at times - makes interesting points and at the very least provides a counterpoint argument that I sometimes do not consider.

I know, just like Petrino, there could be an amazing surprise, but like Bielema there could be a WTH moment to.  So, right now, Iíd take Norvell in a heartbeat;  low cost, Low risk, high reward move.  If he doesnít work, next.  Thatís football.  But, his intelligence, desire for the job, familiarity with the State, Texas roots, innovative offense, ability to adapt and motivate all look like a good fit.

Serious question, what good running back will want to play in the air raid offense? I think his offensive style works out in the PAC, but I don't see it working well against SEC opponents that often. I'd rather see what was proven to work here not so long ago, the Petrino power spread, or even the Gus style of spread - which is what Norvell, Morris, Fuentes and others operate. In fact, Fuentes changed his offense after spending several days talking with Norvell.

I'd be ALL IN... on Norvell, but, "IF" Leach can win where he's been, I believe he can win here.. he's recruited Texas, has Texas ties, is an offensive guru, has HC experience . . . and would run a different style in the SEC. I'd take Norvell, he's my 1st choice, but I don't think Long is that smart, so... I'd be happy with THE PIRATE!!!!

Unless Norvell takes a job during the season yes.

It is a absolute myth that firing a coach during the season improves chances of hiring a sitting coach

Norvell would be a fine pick.  He was once hired by malzahn.  His growing and playing days were in the Dallas / ft worth metroplex.  The best high school football in the country takes place in that region. He was recruited to play at Irving Grace Prep.  Peers call him extremely fooball smart.  Definitely a top up and comer.  I'd love to see him at Arkansas, or will JL go with that dumb "hiring a proven D1 coach" nonsense.  What?  You gonna get Saban or Meyer or Dabo or Chip? Lol. I dont think so. You can however hire that proven D1 coach that steadily gets their butts kicked by the coaches named above, or you can go with Norvell.

I would think Mullen's contract states that he cannot leave Miss St for another SEC school (which would include Tennessee, of course). Is that not the case?  ???

Not going to get wrapped up in who I want hired. I would just hope that Long has thoroughly evaluated the situation and found where things might have went wrong with Bielema. We may not end up doing better than Bret, but it's time to go ahead and go down the path of finding out because he is not the answer (clearly).

The next few of years are going to suck on Hogville because we'll either still have Bielema as coach or we'll have to put up with a bunch of impatient fans as the new coaches gets his program established. Would hope the next rebuild is quicker compared to the John L. Smith transition.
