..I’m just saying…
Check out this link to the West Virginia message boards. Some fans are supporting former NC State assistant, Doc Holliday for the West Virginia job; and The Sporting News has their initial list of potential candidates already up.
Please feel free to use this entry to discuss other coaching items that are developing. For example, we haven’t discussed David Cutcliffe’s hiring at Duke.
There is no doubt that Cutcliffe is quite an improvement over Carl Franks and Ted Roof.
Cutcliffe went 44-29 and led Ole Miss in five bowl games from 1999-2004, and will remain with Tennessee for its Outback Bowl appearance next month against Wisconsin while also embracing the challenge of reversing the fortunes of a football program that has struggled mightily while most of Duke’s other teams have flourished.
Cutcliffe has longed for another head coaching opportunity ever since Ole Miss fired him following a 4-7 finish in 2004, a year after winning the Cotton Bowl and the first season of the post-Eli Manning era in Oxford.
Ole Miss was crazy to push out Cutcliffe, by the way.
