I would like Leach or Norvell. Honestly if we Do change coaches. HOPEFULLY HY and the powers that be will interview COACHES that are interested, I read when we were looking 2 years ago Leach wanted to interview but we wouldn’t even give him an interview, I don’t know if that is true or not.But with our record the last 3 years we don’t need to be looking down on ANYBODY.
If we do fire Morris (I think he gets another year), I think money will play a factor. I don’t think Leach will take a lowball offer and with the uncertainty of the Bret situation, I’m not sure the boosters will want to shell out big money. Plus there are rumors Leach doesn’t play well with his bosses.
Out of the list above, I think the App St coach makes the most sense from a financial standpoint. But on the flip side, there was a lot of money being thrown at Gus, so it shouldn’t be a factor. Yet, it will be.
It really seems like Norvell makes the most sense. I think he’d make more fans happy than any other attainable option, he has connections to the state, he has an exciting offense, he’s had time to get some experience, the national press would love it.
Imagine how sick we’d be if he wound up going to Ole Miss and turning it around there.
It’s fun to talk about others, but Norvell has too much going for him not to be the favorite.
Again, with Norvell it comes down to how much we offer. He’s not going to get lowballed and take the job, and we may not be able to offer what he wants. Now, if the Bielema situation is decided by the time a search starts then you could see higher offers, but because no one knows how that situation plays out, the big money guys may not be wanting to donate big money to pay three head coaches.
