Nope.

I think they will target Napier or the coach at Coastal Carolina. Perhaps Venables, but he has not shown a predilection to be a HC or leave Clemson. To think about it, if Hall had a couple of successful years under his belt at USM, I would think he would be a serious candidate for them.

I know these coach search lists are generally 99% spitballing and only slightly less sourced than the bowl assignment ones. However even at blimp level it surprises me how few folks throw in UC's Fickell as a candidate. So far I've seen him mentioned by one or two for Illinois but that's about it.

Maybe this is all based on real reporting and Fickell is immovable except for say OSU or the like but still. Meanwhile it only helps AAC if he stays so we can root for that even if it's unlikely at some point.

He's got a large family and is 100% a midwest guy. Anybody serious won't be listing for jobs outside the Midwest except maybe Alabama or Clemson

If Fitz takes the Bears job I could see Fickell being enticed. He'd have Cincy job security but B1G salary

Freeze + Auburn = NCAA puts Ole Miss or Arky or Mizzou on probation. They wont touch Auburn, Alabama, LSU, etc. These days. Cam Newtons tenure proved that.

It appears Vanderbilt is hiring VU alum and Notre Dame DC Clark Lea.

Art Briles has resigned his HS coaching position. Is this precursor to some program's big heel turn?

The rumor is Hugh Freeze leaves Liberty for the Auburn job, and then Briles takes the Liberty job, reuniting with his former Baylor AD (and former Tulanian) Ian McCaw...

Another version has Freeze going to Tennessee, with Briles then replacing him.

Auburn seems to be targeting Mario Cristobal, whose current team got COVIDed into the PAC 12 title game. That has delayed things and given Oregon time to sweeten his deal. The Auburn 247 site runners say that DC Kevin Steele is a serious candidate. That has to be a smokescreen; Steele went 1-31 in league play at Baylor.

The information that has come out recently shows the Baylor Admins and higher ups to have been far more of the problem than Briles. They sacrificed Briles to the NCAA because they didnt do crap to enforce title ix guidelines and tried to dave their asses. I have no like or dislike of Briles and don't think he deserves anything good or bad because I dont know what happend behind closed doors and I refuse to infantilized grown men and hold their their coaches accountable for what they do off of the playing field. On the surface most to of then neglegamce is on the universities end.

He was last time too until their QB voiced displeasure about the triple. If hired, I would bet money they won't even run the triple, but they might have recruiting impacts anyway just like happened to fritz his first couple of seasons

Cristobal has now been massively extended so he is out. Steele was the guy all along, but now the anti Steele crowd is pushing back. Tbd where Auburn looks next and it may still come back around to Steele

Cristobal was extended but at a level Auburn could easily top, if he's signed it.

Steele if hired is an interim. Two years and they're doing this again.

That would be hard to fathom. They'd be paying 10.5 to Gus now, plus the remaining 11 million over the next few years. Then they'd be paying the 9 million buyout on Cristobal's extension plus I assume they'd have to offer more annually than the 4.3 million Oregon is bumping him to. I guess it's possible, but that would be quite a bit of coin to lay down up front in a pandemic.

Not until you've won a national championship and beaten Alabama. You have to do that to gain enough respect that the Bama fans will hold their noses and vote for you along with the Auburn half of the state! :lol:
