    From a 2-4-7 story:

    >>Strong in Tampa today, but there's competition

    A source with knowledge of the situation tells Bulls247 that former Texas Longhorn coach Charlie Strong will be in Tampa today to discuss the head coach position at USF.
    Strong has been in talks with USF for the past 24 hours, but as of last night there had been no job offer. That could change today when Strong arrives in Tampa.

    Strong is the clear number one target right now for the head coaching position at USF. But the Bulls have competition and it's coming from a familiar name. I can confirm that Willie Taggart has also been in contact with Charlie Strong about possibly becoming the defensive coordinator under Taggart at Oregon.

    Even if Strong is offered the job today, I do not expect a decision to be made at the meeting. A source close to Strong tells me he's planning to take a day or two to decide. Of course, this all depends on if he's offered the job today while in Tampa.<<

    Houston choosing Applewhite impacts the USF HC search (Kiffin), LSU OC search (Kiffin) and Oregon DC search (Strong?). Lots of moving parts.

    Bruce Feldman thinks Orlando to Texas as DC is very possible.

    Word circulating that Luke Fickell will be the man for #UC football job. Not confirmed, and several false alarms have sounded. Stay tuned

    Hired ASU assistant Jay Norvell to lead the Wolf Pack ... maybe he'll need a fellow Iowa alum as a defensive assistant ;)

    Cincinnati is hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell as its next coach, sources tell ESPN. The two sides reached an agreement late last night, and an official announcement from Cincinnati is expected shortly. Fickell has coached at his alma mater since 2002, and served as Ohio State's head coach in 2011, following Jim Tressel's resignation.

    SOURCE: #OhioState Co-DC Luke Fickell will become the new head coach at #Cincinnati. 1st reported by ESPN.

    Apparently both #UC and OSU teams have not been told yet, but Fickell hiring is happening.

    At this point I'd put money on Fleck staying put for a year, Miles taking a year off, and Kiffin staying at Alabama or going to LSU to be OC. Strong could land at one of USF/Temple while the other school takes a P5 coordinator, and Tuberville might get an irrelevant job. Very quiet coaching cycle this year.

    If a guy who cheated on his wife with a college coed has "great integrity", I am giving Ghandi a run for his money.

    In honor of the Applewhite hire could we get a re-post of the epic rant by the Texas poster Startthemajor?

    So we could get Miles or Fleck? It sounds like a good coach will be available after Jan 1st if we pull the plug.

    Fleck is going no where... he'll wait it out to see what P5 openings come up next year's cycle.

    Lane Kiffin is seriously considering FAU over being OC at Alabama or LSU?
