    Like last year, 3 big time programs will be looking for their next HC. It'll be interesting to see who Florida goes after. Also think this is an extremely important off season for the entire BIG 10 as well.

    HC Openings:

    1. Michigan
    2. Houston
    3. Tulsa
    4. UNLV

    Coordinator Openings:

    1. Auburn DC
    2. Texas A&M DC

    New Hires:

    1. SMU - Chad Morris (Great pickup IMO)
    2. Buffalo - Lance Leipold
    3. Troy - Neal Brown
    4. Florida - Jim McElwain
    5. Nebraska - Mike Riley
    6. Kansas - David Beaty

    Lots of teams looking for new coordinators but the TAMU DC spot is officially open. Seems more relevant than UNLV's head coach...

    Thanks. Gameday did a special on Leipold a few weeks ago, pretty amazing what he's done up there.

    Scott Frost (Oregon OC) seems like a great fit for Nebraska. His age and experience would be the only drawback, but he is already a hero in Lincoln for obvious reasons.

    I heard SC is dangling all kinds of stuff in front of him, including possible coach in waiting status.

    That's worked out well for him.

    I'm calling Kiffin to Nebraska.

    Does anyone think Mack Brown might come back to coaching next year?

    I'm not sure if he has any contract with UT that won't allow him to return to coaching.

    Never heard anything about non-competes in his deal. I think he'd actually be a good fit in Nebraska. Would definitely help with recruiting.

    No way Pelini ends up at Michigan. They are like Texas, where "image" is a part of the process, and Pelini fails miserably on that. It's part of why RichRod didn't last very long there - he never fit in. Pelini needs to go a school where alumni relations is not a primary part of the job.

    He'll be a great DC at a major school soon, I'd bet on next year.

    Maybe he will take a HC job at a smaller school, I dunno.
