The level of his coaching was proved on the field. OK St is probably looking to double his salary. But they are considering 5 other candidates. How much of the improvement was due to him or TR and CBoom?

One of the top candidates for the job. If he bolts, it really hurts us with Sandidge.

Open the checkbook Ray.

Their old DC was only getting 100 K more than Thompson is getting now. Plus, last I looked, Oklahoma State was in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

There is thought that Coach T would be better off passing and waiting on the DC gig here in a year or two when TRob gets a Head Coaching gig. It would pay better than Okie State, make more sense in the long run financially, and he would not have to move the family. And again, the move would be to Stillwater, Oklahoma.

I can't imagine they would pay him 7 figures ... or even high 6 figures. He was the DC at UCF for 3 years but didn't get a P5 job so his experience at that level is limited. But he got a relatively small raise (because he is a position coach and his base was already high) so $750,000 might attract him. Hopefully, he sees the wisdom of sticking around for a few more years.

Well i wonder how long Gundy is going to stick around? Thompson may have a better shot at becoming a HC by going there. This is all assuming Muschamp sticks around.

It would be a big promotion for him, you could not blame him for taking the job if offered.

If he's offered the DC job he'll take it. That said he's one of a number of candidates so still a good chance he isn't offered.

I'd like to keep him, but if he's offered a DC position he'd be nuts to turn it down. Open up the checkbook a little bit more Ray.

Some speculation is Travis Jones would be the guy. He'd bring some NFL experience to the DL.

Is this more of a case of CWM asking Lance to look around?

I remember comments were made weeks ago that he may be the one coach that may have ruffled the feathers of other Gamecock coaches.

My apologies if that isn't the case. Just going on memory and haven't looked up the posts I remember reading.

It's not the case. I know there was some speculation by fans that if we didn't see improvement on the DL this past season it was a possibility, we definitely saw improvement on the DL. Muschamp wants Thompson back on the staff next year but if he moves on I'm confident he already has a name or two in mind to replace him. Like I said Travis Jones may be one of those names and while it may take a bit of time for him to get back into the recruiting game his NFL experience would be very appealing to recruits. That said I hope Thompson stays around for a few more years because the more traction we gain due to on the field results the better he's going to get at landing some big names.

He should have had a chance as a cord before now to be honest. He has the experience and a known recruiter but just needs his shot. Hate to lose him but hope he gets it.
