Default Next Texas Coach

Figured it deserved its own thread.

This guy is a beat writer for the Ft Worth Star-Telegram

Stefan Stevenson ‏@FollowtheFrogs 32m
Source close to Texas executive council of regents says Nick Saban will be next Longhorns coach.

If Bama locks up Saban, then my guess is Jim Mora as the next Texas coach.

Default Re: Next Texas Coach

If there has ever been a weaker field of potential HC candidates for Texas' or other potential vacancies, I can't remember it. The hottest candidates (other than Saban) are mostly a bunch of journeyman coaches with a good year or two under their belt (Briles, Mora), or underwhelming/over-rated assistants (Kirby Smart, The Chad, etc.)

I don't buy Jim Mora. Mora is from California and has primarily worked on the west coast throughout his career.

I think it'd have to be someone who has experience recruiting Texas. Maybe someone like Mike Gundy from Ok State.

Gundy is Ok St man. He has been there since 1986 as a player or a coach with the exception of 1 year at baylor and 4 at Maryland . I don't see him going anywhere else

On a funny side note, some prankster had Nick Saban paged in the Austin Airport. Lol.

Could be.

IMO, and this is a name I am pulling out of left field simply on my own, look out for David Shaw at Alabama if Saban leaves.

I bet your same Bama buddy would also have told you a week ago Saban wasn't leaving. For the people that don't think Dabo would be dangerous at Alabama look at Clemson. The man can recruit. He has brought in talent to Clemson that the school had never seen before. If he can surround himself with a good developmental coaching staff that knows what it takes to win in the SEC, he'll be putting national championships on the wall.

You could say that for any coach. And Bama never has a problem recruiting anyway.

But not many other coaches have the story of Dabo Swinney while also being an alumni.

You obviously missed out on the Shula years. They had problems win recruiting, NCAA violations, winning....

If I were AD at Texas I would take a hard look at Bill O'Brien at Penn St. He has done an incredible job there under the worst conditions in NCAA history. I honestly didn't think they would win more than 3 or 4 games in the last couple of seasons but every couple of weeks I'm seeing highlights on ESPN of PSU upsetting somebody. He also has a good bit of coaching experience at Georgia Tech and Texas seems to like ACC coaches. He is definitely a long shot but so is everybody else at this point.
