    Texas has reportedly narrowed its search and intends to hire by Jan 15. Two ACC coaches are finalists. Your four candidates are Baylor’s Art Briles, Vandy’s James Franklin, FSU’s Jimbo Fisher, and Lville’s Charlie Strong. What a list.

    That’s a helluva ambitious list for most programs, but Texas is the best job in college football.

    I agree it is the best and they can hand pick. I just don’t know about Jimbo though. Would he really leave FSU at a time when they are going for it all, and Winston is back next year. The other three would go in a heartbeat.

    The Winston factor is why I thought — if they really wanted Jimbo — they’d have waited another year.

    I’m not as interested in who Texas as I am the dominoes that fall afterward.

    FSU and Louisville would attract another BCS HC, while Baylor and Vandy might have to look outside the box some.

    It also seems possible, if not likely, that one or more College coaches go to the NFL.

    The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that FSU and Jimbo have agreed to a 5 year extension valued at $4.1 M. If true, he is out of the mix. I think I agree that he was never a candidate. If he was, Texas would have waited until next year to move Mack out to pasture.

    I am also interested in the domino chain.

    Teddy Bridgewater announces he is leaving for the NFL.

    I’m not at all sold on Louisville as a long term program.

    I’m looking to jump now if I am Charlie Strong.

    ^I dunno, I think they could be a regular top 25 program – but your statement made me think of Chris Petersen jumping from Boise.

    As for Texas, the resulting game of Dominoes should be interesting.

    TX and Charlie Strong make mutual sense.

    Mora turns Texas down. Briles not interested. You would have to think Strong or Franklin is the guy.

    Al Golden has been offered the Penn State job and he is expected to accept. So potentially Miami and Lville could be looking for new coaches.

    Louisville coach Charlie Strong will replace Mack Brown as the head coach at Texas, according to a high-ranking UT source.

    All of a sudden, replacing Maryland with Louisville doesn’t seem as daunting. New coach, new QB coming to the ACC.

    * It’s a great move by Texas.

    * There are whispers that Louisville may hire Bobby Petrino. As much as you may not like the guy, it is hard to argue with his success.

    * I’ve said it a million times — if you aren’t cheating big-time at Miami then you can’t win. In fact, NO COACH has EVER won at Miami without big time cheating. Golden is smart to get out of there. That job is so much more of a ‘stepping stone’ than people admit.
