Talk about coaches being fired, hired, interviewing, etc. here, especially if it has an FAU angle...
BIG news out of Miami, FIU has fired Mario Cristobal!
And I thought Guz Malzhan back to Auburn, creating an opening at Arkansas State was a big one as far as FAU was concerned
Paging Butch Davis. Please report to Little Havana.
Did not do much at NM this year, why would they want him? And after being HC at UM why would you stoop to FIU?
What is NM?
SI.com: Butch Davis is FIU's top candidate after Cristobal firing
hopefully we can steal some of their recruits!
Add Western Kentucky to the list of Sun Belt schools looking for a coach.
Taggart to USF
It looks like everyone who has a chance is bailing from the Belt.
Can't blame them as Taggert will do a great job.
Some of the so-called experts didn't consider him a candidate when Holtz was fired because they didnt know he is from Bradenton and recruited the state heavily.
I thought he would be a candidate immediately. Now, can he win and recruit at the BigEast level? He won (sort of, 7-5 twice) but did not exactly tear up the Belt. And will his being at USF help or hurt the Owls in recruiting, now he won't be taking all those Florida kids out of state at least.
Western Kentucky has reportedly hired former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino. Here's the story: http://www.bgdailynews.com/sports/wku-to-name-petrino-new-football-coach-today/article_e2846562-42f5-11e2-8feb-0019bb2963f4.html.
Think FAU will hold a motorcycle appprciation promotion or motorcycle safety promotion when WKU comes to town next year?
Just have lots of FAU HOTTIES there to distract him from his job - that seems to be pretty easy!
Here's one fans might be interested in...
Former FAU QB coach Jeff Brohm could be leaving UAB for Western Kentucky.
He has been offered the job, but hasn't taken it yet.
Leave C-USA for the Sun Belt?
I believe you must be talking about Robert Lohnes. I had not heard why he left.
Sorry to hear that. He was exciting to watch and he seemed to have a lot of heart too. What was his name? I hope another school picks him up.
They wouldn't give him a scholarship so he quit
Owl Access, what ever happened to our punt returner that was from the Tampa area? He was about 5'6" and really fast. I can't remember his name.
I don't have all the facts and the dust is still settling,but it seems we have some walk ons that can and will provide some needed depth at some...
