I think since they tried the Joker, the next on the call list is the Smoker, followed by the Midnight Toker.
"A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."
Kentucky wanted to get the jump on Auburn in the available coaches market.

I would love to see the barn's meltdown if Kentucky lands Petrino. And then of course the barn winds up settling big time for some up and comer.

ROLL TIDE ROLL!
Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.
I always liked Joker, but everyone isn't an SEC head coach. He's still got a good future, but he'll have to choose whether he would rather be a head coach at a smaller venue or a position coach or coordinator at higher levels.
I agree that UK should consider Taggart. Nutt, not so much. Complete head case.

Maybe Bill Curry will go back to KY...
Here's where 'Sweater Boy' always mentioned that he was the last player drafted in the pros...
Taggart is the name the media keeps kicking around, but he didn't exactly endear himself to UK folks during the lead-up to WKU's game against them this year.
Nutt, I think is done as a head coach in this league. Not only was the Ole Miss experience a flame-out, but the way he left Arkansas didn't go over well and he never really accomplished anything there of note. Kentucky would be better off either going for a young guy, or ......... being the school to give Petrino his rebound stop.
ON EDIT: Saw where Kentucky's AD said they would not consider Petrino. Names they're considering include Brent Pease, Dirk Koetter and Phil Fulmer. I kid you not.
