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!!
It's pretty much the same committee that hired him a few months ago.

Very little news on the HC search as far as I've heard. That could confirm that their candidate (or candidates) is the current HC of a bowl team.

Gus Malzahn, please.

I don't care about the extension, or the money, or basically anything else. Horns need to make this happen, IMO.

FSU is giving Fisher an updated contract worth $6M per year, which will be enough to keep him with what he has coming back.

My bet is Franklin or Strong at this point.

You won't know anything for sure till the coach is announced at the PC.

However, Texas thought it had a good chance to sign Fisher because FSU offered an extension of just of $4M per year and Texas was offering $6-7M per year. Now, as with Saban and others, the agent has gone back to FSU and gotten them to pony up enough catch to convince him to stay, so it doesn't look good for the school trying to lure him away.

I have to ask, do you know for a fact that the agent went back to FSU? Could it have been FSU and FSU booster offering without the agent? And why would the agent only ask for $6 million from FSU if he's getting $7 million from Texas as advertised?

No one knows for fact, but reports from Texas and FSU sources seem to indicate this. And does it really matter if the agent went to FSU or if FSU went to his agent to get bigger numbers? At some point Fisher's agent probably told FSU the numbers being floated by Texas and FSU talked to his agent and worked out what it would likely take to keep him since they don't have as deep pockets.

Fisher has a good thing going at FSU and is loaded for NC runs for the next couple of years, whilst Texas would be a rebuild and their boosters and fans would expect fast results, especially after seeing Auburn do it and if their new coach is being paid $6-7M per year.

I've never seen this many coaches get raises and extensions just by bein rumored as a target by a school. I'm sure texas will get a good coach but it seems now that all the big splash, home run hires are off the board.

Its called agents doing their job and leveraging one of the premier jobs in football. And anyone of these big names would most certainly entertain the idea, but the timing has to be right too.
