AU Committee, make it happen
Not my first choice, but I would take him over Jimbo.
2nd Smart, Malzahn, or Strong.
Come on Kirby. You will make a great Auburn Tiger!
These are some nice things to say about CKS. All are true. But all those things could be said about CGC before he left Texas. What makes Smart good is the HC and the players. Don't think he brings a whole lot to Auburn.
The same could also be said of Muschamp...
I also see more similarities of personality with Muschamp and Smart vs Chizik and Smart. The fiery personality would be good for Auburn. Smart is not at the top of my list, but the more I read about him and hear from others he has certainly come off of the bottom.
Fearless and true.
I think it is too much of a risk to hire a guy who has never been a head coach. If the circumstances at Auburn were different maybe it would be worth the risk. The timing just is not right, we need a proven head coach.
He has the stench of bammer on him.
