Since we are throwing out names.
Would be a great choice. I thought of him the other day. He just doesn’t seem like he would fit in here. Great coach that could do a lot at a school without the academic limitations he has at his current job. Great recruiter.
I don’t think Brian Kelley would be interested in The Arkansas job at this time.
However, I’ve lived just across the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky for the past 20 years and told family and friends at the end of the 2007 season when Houston Nutt was ran off that he should be given serious consideration at that time. Obviously, that didn’t happen we hired Petrino had a couple of excellent seasons and then the program literally went in the ditch.
He is the type of coach we need because of his no nonsense style, fundamentally sound and a fierce competitor that expects great effort from his players or they won’t play for him.
