Could have numerous coaching changes.
Florida----coach already gone
Tennessee---- foregone conclusion coach gone
ole miss-----interim coach gone
Texas a and m ----sumlin probably gone
Auburn------malzahn on the edge of the cliff, lose to georgia and bama probably gone
Mississippi State----mullen probably gone to take one of above jobs or moving on
Missouri-----who knows, probably they stay with current coach.
Arkansas---- who knows, ole miss win saved job for a couple of weeks at least.
Now that is 6 head coaches i think are gone in the SEC. That is also 53 to 60 assistants probably looking for jobs, plus numerous grad assistants, support staff, analysts, and that doesn’t even include the domino effect across the country.
With so many openings from head coaches to assistants leaving, leaves the question what will Long do at Arkansas. 4 of the above jobs just in the SEC are considered better than Arkansas. I disagree with this but i am a homer but that is the national perception. Is there enough talent left out there to hire? If we did have an opening, would we take a retread coach. Sumlin and Malzhan won’t have any trouble getting another gig. Would we look at one of those?
Young coaches that are hot
Virginia Tech coach
Iowa State coach
Frost at one of those Florida schools
Willie Taggert even though one year at Oregon would he leave for a Florida, Auburn, Tennessee?
Going to be an interesting rest of the year as far as coaching changes. The more i think about it the more i think Long stays put for more year, we hire numerous coaches from fired staffs, staff overhaul probably.
On a personal note, coaches i like are coach B, but he needs to win and go to a bowl game this year. And if he stays he needs to load up the staff with proven recruiters with Texas ties and not some obscure coaches from the pros with no recruiting experience Otherwise i am not so sure.
i love the Iowa State coach but I’m sure he has raised eyebrows already
Sumlin can recruit
do not want Malzahn at all
Frost, well i can dream
Memphis coach, who knows but their team is exciting, hit hard, and is wide open.
Virginia tech coach we don’t stand a chance
Kiffin no way
i am sure there are others but lots of competition for coaches this year it seems. And i have little to no confidence in Long’s ability to hire one. I think he is so far removed from the average fan, he has no clue to the pulse of Hawg Nation or the everyday fan.
