UCLA fired Jim Mora & hired Chip Kelly
Tennessee fired Butch Jones & hired Greg Schiano. Well maybe not exactly. Fans, alumni, and program donors are protesting the hire. Schiano was a Joe Pa assistant who allegedly saw Sandusky doing Sandusky things to boys in the shower and kept it to himself. No contract is finalized and now Schiano has concerns about how he'll be welcomed to Knoxville.
I saw this is all John Currie's master plan to bring Lane Kiffin back to Tennessee. Generate outrage with news of Schiano and even those who sent Kiffin death threats back when would be relieved to have him back instead.
Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin rather quick. Dumb on their part IMO. They have set their sights on Jimbo Fisher. Jimbo was willing to negotiate with LSU last year but they didn't make it worth his while. Why would Fisher leave FSU? Apparently he hasn't been treated well in Tallahassee, he just went through an ugly divorce, and he has a son that could benefit from one of the nation's top Children's Hospitals in Houston.
Arizona State fired Todd Graham, which is interesting b/c Graham was a big name that was expected to get a better job a couple years ago. Hearing Sumlin might be their target.
Arkansas fired Bret Bielema and supposedly has MIke Norvell on the top of their wish list. Many pegged Gus Malzahn as a candidate to make the jump but Auburn will now build a statue of him this offseason and then be ready to fire him again throughout most of 2018.
Florida fired Jim McElwain and attempted to hire Chip Kelly. Not interested. They set their sights on Scott Frost. Not interested. Plan C and ironically the best fit, Dan Mullen leaves Mississippi State for Florida. Mullen was Florida's OC the last time they got the best of Nick Saban and Alabama.
Nebraska fired Mike Riley and is...apparently doing nothing to find their next head coach. Tom Osborne said today he hasn't reached out to Scott Frost yet. Seems odd considering Frost would likely be their top candidate. Have to wonder if Frost really does want to be Nebraska's savior, or is he content to stay at UCF and build? UCF does have the money, living in Orlando beats the hell out of living in Lincoln, and the Knights should start to get a serious look from the Big 12 upon their inevitable expansion.
