    Re: Dooley is Out At UT

    Seems like I have been around here before with coaching searches being the subject. Working on coach #4 since 08. No idea where this one will lead. Personally, I don't want to see another mid-major coach come in unless Louisville is considered a mid-major.

    The top 2 on my list would be Charlie Strong and Bob Stoops. Although Kirby Smart may make a good head coach I don't really want to be the school that gives him that first job although I would not rule out Hart hiring him...Hart did say in his press conference that getting a coach with head coaching experience will be a critical thing on his list.

    I believe Gruden is pretty far fetched. Even if he wants to come to college it may be hard to get him and a top notch staff. Probably looking at nearly $10 mil/year for Gruden and staff. Even if he is hired I am not sure how well he could recruit. He would definitely bring some excitement but would have to win, as would any coach, to keep excitement for more than a year or so.

    Like I said, I have no idea where this will go I just don't want a coach from a mid-major again.

    How well can Mullen recruit?

    After their experience with Bill Battle, Sal and Dooley, I think UT is through trying to hire coaches with ties to Alabama or Alabama coaches.

    As others have mentioned, this really is a watershed hire for UT. They really need to go for an established head coach that can recruit nationally. Not sure who that is though.

    Is Bob Stoops considered a realistic possibility?

    Absolutely. If a big-time program comes calling that's willing to pay $3.5-$4million/yr, I think Kirby takes it.

    No way. I really think Stoops is a lifer at Oklahoma. He is treated like a king there, makes between $4-$5mil/yr, and plays in an inferior conference that has no CCG. Why would he give all that up to swim in the shark tank known as the SEC?

    I think Mullen stays where he is.

    Probably not. Unless for some reason he wants to be in the SEC.

    Re: Dooley is Out At UT

    I don't understand the fascination with Gruden. Has he ever been a head coach at the college level? Even in the NFL his w/l record is barely over .5oo. You'd think that after Kiffen UT would be leery of Al Davis castoffs. I for one would welcome a Gruden hire.
