I think what he's saying is that Texas needs to look for more of an x's and o's guy than a back slapper. Considering Brown missed out on those two Heisman winners despite being the supposed smiling master of recruiting, I think he has a point.

What about Dantoni at Michigan State? I'd love to get a hard nosed defensive guru in Austin and find a good offensive mind to be OC.

I would like to see Mora get the job as he has been able to coach-up his players and has succefully switched players to different sides of the ball.

Yes that is what I was saying. I'm not a Texas fan at all, but I acknowledge the fact that you don't have to be a great recruiter to bring good recruits into UT. The school itself garners interest from most of the young talent across the state. Do you still need to be able to recognize talent and close the deal? Yes. But UT needs a Harbaugh-type who can utilize his talent and develop them into good college players.

You're going to get talented players at UT, that's just how it is. But if you can't make the most of that talent then you will fail. Just like Mack has done recently.

My top three right now would be:

Bill O'Brien - Penn St
Jim Mora - UCLA
Gary Andersen - Wisconsin

Problem is that there are significant obstacles to overcome to get any of them.

Assessing the odds on Texas search

Jeremy Fowler


Quote:
The country's highest-profile coaching search + Vegas odds = unadulterated Internet heaven...Below are the recent odds released by @BovadaLV, which is seriously pumping Charlie Strong, along with my take on each...
Quote:
Charlie Strong (2/1): Disagree. Great coach and recruiter, but just seems like an odd fit. He can either stay at Louisville or wait out Florida, where he has a long history and a good relationship with the people there. Louisville AD Tom Jurich isn't about to be outbid. Strong's mild-mannered. Can coach in shadows at Louisville -- and make nearly $4M a year doing so.

Art Briles (9/2): Disagree. No doubt Texas was part of the conversation when Briles and Baylor finalized a contract extension last month worth more than $4 million per year. Both parties already got what they wanted. Bailing on Baylor before unveiling the new stadium that he built would be a tough sell for a guy with a soul like Briles. Maybe I'm naive. Just don't see it.

James Franklin (5/1): Agree. In the next few weeks, expect Franklin to be in the conversation. It's a good time for him to consider a job like this. Texas could use an injection of youth and energy. Franklin oozes that much. Making $3-plus million per year at Vandy isn't a bad gig, either.

Mike Gundy (7/1): Agree. In fact, maybe Gundy's odds should be a bit stronger here. Monday's "Coaching Changes Daily" post outlined why Gundy makes a ton of sense at UT -- if you can get past his 1-8 record vs. Oklahoma.

Bill O'Brien (15/2): Disagree. Could be wrong, but my guess is Penn State or NFL for O'Brien. According to CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora, O'Brien carries huge NFL cachet. Penn State is a better job than the scholarship reductions indicate. Because of the restrictions, O'Brien doesn't have to win big every year.

Chip Kelly (10/1): Disagree. He has a better job. This isn't Bobby Petrino 2.0. The Eagles are actually pretty good. Kelly left Oregon to test his mettle in the NFL. One year isn't enough of a sample size for that. There were whispers that Kelly brushed off simple booster duties at Oregon. Now he wants to handle the Longhorn Network?

David Shaw (10/1): Disagree. He's just so adamant about being a Stanford guy. Hard to believe all coaches, but Shaw seems sincere about his desire to stay.

Jim Mora (10/1): Agree. UCLA probably thought Washington was the only fire it'd have to put out. If Texas has Mora on its short list, this orange might be hard to extinguish. Mora fits the profile -- high energy, good with boosters, good talent evaluator, would have more resources than at UCLA. If he's interested, I could see this one.

Jimbo Fisher (15/1): Agree. I'm surprised these odds aren't stronger in Fisher's favor. FSU dropped the ball not raising Fisher's pay after last season. Will he remember that when UT calls? FSU has tried to ease concerns with a recent extension to $4.25 million per year, and my guess is the Seminoles will fight to keep their guy. Win or lose in Pasadena, Fisher's roster for 2014 will be loaded and will be hard to leave.

Jim Harbaugh (20/1): Disagree. Has one of the best jobs in all of football. Zero chance.

Mike Tomlin (20/1): Disagree. Zero chance. Just don't see it.

Would have loved Briles. But he wants to stay put.

Guz Malzahn has done a great job with Auburn over the past 3 years. Could be a candidate worth interviewing.

What about Musschamp? I think he could be a potential candidate here. He knows everyone and they know him.

Malzahn won't be able to interview till after the BCS MNC game. Not sure texas would wait that long to interview plus Malzahn already signed an extention with Auburn.

Muschamp is on the hot seat at Florida and not a hot commodity.

Thanks for the info about Malzahn. We dont know who is on their radar. At this point it could be Gary Kubiak and Mike Shanahan.

They pretty much can't hire Muschamp after the season that Florida just had.

I love him as a D Coordinator but he's shown less than all these other candidates as a HC.

This is who I'm pulling for. I don't care about the logistics, and cost shouldn't be an issue. This is an offensive mind that few can rival, imo, in an era of exploding offenses. Hopefully Patterson sees same and ignores whatever other beauty contests others might want to impose on a UT HC hire.

During its year between his stints at Auburn, the Tigers averaged 18.7 points and 305.0 yards per game on its way to a 3-9 record. This season, the Tigers are 12-1, SEC champions and set to play Florida State in the BCS Championship Game. The offense has exploded for 40.2 points and 505.3 yards per contest, and Auburn's 335.7 rushing yards per game leads the nation.

Malzahn might be the hottest head coach in America right now, and Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel recently reported that Texas is his "dream job." However, Malzahn and Auburn agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension this month, a deal that has built in raises and will pay $5.1 million in base salary during its final year. Even notorious nomads Bobby Petrino and Todd Graham would raise their eyebrows if he decided to leave right after signing a new deal.

I disagree. If Muschamp would have stayed and got his HC in waiting spot now, I think he'd do well at Texas. He has only been at Florida for what two years? He didn't do that bad in his first season. They were top 10 for a while without his players and without a good QB as well. I'd love to get the guy back honestly. I know they won't, but I find it silly that he was this GOD over at Texas for a while and he left for a big HC job and after two seasons that weren't spectacular, he is now a guy that is considered some lame duck HC that shouldn't even be considered. If he does get fired at FLorida eventually, I'd love to get him back as the DC. The guy brought fire, intensity, and revitalized the Longhorns after two seasons where they Horns didn't look like they were going to become dominant again.

Malzahn with the RBs that Texas can recruit would be scary. Even with that retard Mack Brown recruiting the last few years, he has still found a lot of talent at RB. I doubt Gus leaves Auburn, but if he does.... woooooow! That would be a great hire for Texas.

Texas athletic director forms eight-member coach search committee
Quote:
Quote:
Texas athletic director Steve Patterson has appointed an eight-person advisory search committee to replace Mack Brown, the school announced Wednesday.

The school also has retained the executive recruiting firm Korn/Ferry for the search to hire a new head football coach.

The eight search committee members, according to UT — per the Austin American Statesman – are:
  • Steve Hicks, vice chair of the Board of Regents, one of the board’s athletics liaisons, and owner and executive chairman of Capstar Partners LLC, a private investment firm.
  • Robert Stillwell, member of the Board of Regents, one of the board’s athletics liaisons, retired partner at Baker Botts LLP and an original director of Mesa Petroleum Co.
  • Michael Clement, accounting professor, McCombs School of Business at UT Austin, and faculty representative to the Men’s and Women’s Athletics Councils.
  • Ricardo Hinojosa, United States federal judge for the Southern District of Texas, former member of the university’s Commission of 125.
  • Charles Matthews, former vice president and general counsel of Exxon Mobil, current president of the Texas Exes.
  • Robert Rowling, former member of the Board of Regents and owner and chairman of TRT Holdings Inc.
  • Charles Tate, chairman of Capital Royalty, former member of the executive committee of the university’s Commission of 125.
  • Pamela Willeford, former U.S. ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein and former chair of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
I think adding the Ambassador to Liechtenstein is going to put us over the top.

Sooo which of those committee members is an expert on football?..

This is just like Texas. Would you use a panel of eight football coaches to select the next CEO of Exxon?

I bet Korn/Ferry is doing all the work and the rest of those people are just getting their names in the paper. Thanks for your donations!!
