I would strongly prefer to end up with one of the first 3 names on this list.
If McBigun is running the search, Chip Kelly would have to learn how to say "no" in 47 different languages before I got serious.
2. Chip Kelley

I would run out into the street and do the "Lutzie" if we hired Chip Kelly, but I fear he would jump to the NFL before too long. Waiting for his hire would also require patience this board does not possess. The meltdown between now and his availability would be epic.
Let’s see since 1950 we’ve had 7 HC’s including interim HC Bill Oliver. They ascended to power at AU from being an assistant @ UGA, an assistant @ AU, a HC @ Wyoming, a HC @ Samford, an assistant @ AU, HC @ Ole Miss, HC @ Iowa State.
Also current UGA HC was an assistant@ FSU, current Oklahoma HC an assistant @ UFL, current Mississippi State HC an assistant @ UFL, current Texas HC, a HC @ UNC, current or former UT HC, HC @ La. Tech.
And current bama & USC coaches came after failing in the NFL and were apparently looking to get back to college. Oh and the current USC HC went to UFL from uh….Duke.
Seems like there is a bit of a pattern here…so my list:
1) Jimbo Fisher
2) Kirby Smart
3) Gus Malzahn
4) Bobby Petrino
1. Stoops Bob
5. Butch J.
Stoops, Smart, Fisher, Shaw(Stanford), or Malzahn in that order
