Coaching Carousel Rumors
all rumors will go in here.
Is it possible for me to switch from UTEP to my alma mater UAB? I could switch after the season if I have to..
we'll talk after the season is done.
Army may move on to a different offensive system next year.
Based on alumni rumblings, the following coaches are on the hot seat at their respective schools, providing an opportunity for some upstart coaches to move on up...
Dan Hawkins - Colorado 3-3 Big 12 - 3*
Hawkins just hasn't been able to live up to expectations in Boulder since being brought in from Boise State. Word is if he doesn't turn things around fast, he'll be on the streets. 3-3 just isn't going to cut it for the 1990 NCAA champions...
Gene Chizik is down in Auburn winning... The Cyclones keep losing... 1-6 overall isn't boding well for new coach Paul Rhodes. The Cyclone faithful may not have the patience for the 2* prestige any longer.
He's been able to recruit, but hasn't been able to win... Ron Zook is on his last leg in Champaign for the 3* Fighting Illini.
3* Colorado State, sitting at 1-6 in the Mountain West is not pleased with coach Steve Fairchild, and rumor is that its bowl game or bust for this staff...
It's about the end of the road for Joker Phillips in Lexington, as he's laying some serious eggs with Randall Cobb, sitting at 1-6 in the SEC with his 3* program.
Larry Porter won't be around long in the Conference USA with a 2-5 record. The boosters are already fed up with the off field problems and rumor has it that he's already on the chopping block.
Other schools with potential openings:
Rice 1*, Army 1*, Ball State 2*, Mississippi State 3*, Hawaii 3*
At the end of the year, if you qualify, you'll have an opportunity to "interview" for the position, given that you are over the points threshold required to move up to a higher * prestige school.
Things you must do:
bama, can you sticky this?
good job smooth
if that illi spot opens up and im an eligible coach... id love that job
You'll have an opportunity to "interview" for the position, given that you are over the points threshold required to move up to a 3* prestige school.
just a Fyi smooth Rich Brooks retired last season and Joker Phillips is the Current Coach of Kentucky.

Art Briles was in and out quickly.Duke - 3-9 - 1-7 in the ACC, David Cutcliffe was cut very short with the Dukies. Durham, NC press indicates that alums expect football to be brought up to Coach K and basketball levels within the next 3 years.Iowa State - 3-9 - Pundits didn't expect this performance to last, although some thought season would be salvaged with 2 wins in a row, most notably with one over Mizzou.1* Openings:Army - 3-9 - There's hope in West Point that the Black Knights will again contend for the Commisioner in Chief Trophy again with a change at head coach.Arkansas State - 1-11 - As the worst team in FBS, something had to give...Western Kentucky - 3-9 - Since going FBS, Western Kentucky hasn't had much luck in the Sun Belt since the days of bcduggan...New Mexico State - 3-8San Jose State - 3-8I will post the updated points tallies and you can apply for the positions accordingly.
