So if Long has made up his mind to make a switch does he
« on: November 07, 2017, 05:27:41 pm »

talk to the agent of that coach he wants to get his reaction hoping to have a replacement by December 1st?


Or does he wait and go interview several applicants and make a decision by mid December or later losing several weeks of recruiting?

Is this a trick question?

If you are an AD you are *always* talking, always networking and you always have a shortlist.

You never know when your HC is going to text hookers, wreck his motorcycle, bet in a Final Four pool, or just start stinking up the place with epic on-the-field failure.

Yes but Long's people talks to coaches people. At this juncture there will be plausible deniability.

If Long has already made up his mind to get rid of Bielema, he will test the waters through back-channels to Agents of the Coaches that he is interested in pursuing. We may never know who all he has contacted. No AD/School wants to be publicly associated with someone who has said "no" to their interest.

I think BB will be gone a few days after the last game and the new coach will be named within a week unless they have another game left (not a bowl game). They need to get going asap for the December signing day.

What if Long isn't making the hire? Or better yet what if Long is gone?

Long will at least be the "face" of the hiring process if he is here and I suspect that he will be.

IF he is still here he will be the one to announce it, sure.

if they are going to hire a new coach, the wheels are already in motion. remember there is now an early signing date. I would think that will make people move faster on hiring than in the past.

Absolutely, the wheels have to be in motion already , or we are in a lot of trouble.
