    People can say what they want but to me having had season tickets since day 1 at Rentschler I think there is a much better of overall quality of football in the AAC than there was in the Big East.

    Kiffin has one thing stopping him from getting another gig - Kiffin. He's known as a jerk and AD's, boosters, Presidents, etc., will search high and low for a RKG to coach their team.

    Strong to USF would make all the sense in the world...

    Yeah...it does make sense. And you know what...after the Texas debacle...he might just be happy to be there for the long haul. Which...definitely has value. Think about it...Herman really only had one recruiting class at Houston...and if they red shirted this year, they will have never played for him. Something is wrong there.

    I do think Strong would be content to stay long term in a less stressful environment with tons of local recruits.

    Agree up until AD's job is on the line, or program's on life support. Then all bets are off.

    See Cardinals, Louisville.

    Word is that Fleck really wants to coach the Bowl game. As in he has made if a condition and cost him interviews. Everyone wants the coach there now.

    Strong would probably do well at USF... however... if he takes a coaching position NOW, doesn't that negate the $10MM buyout he received to leave Texas??

    There is an offset... Strong is "obligated" to make reasonable efforts to obtain another coaching job. If he does, Texas’ obligation to him will be offset by an amount equal to 50% of the total compensation Strong receives from his new job.

    There was an example I read, so flipping names: Let’s assume that Strong would receive $2 million per season from USF. Texas would owe him the difference between his USF salary and the salary he was due from the Longhorns — $3 million — plus half of his salary from USF.

    Miles would be interesting and certainly a name. Good for the league I think. Plus he has lots of Texas connections.

    Tom Groeschen ‏@TomGroeschen 52m 52 minutes ago
    Scenario making rounds: #OSU's Fickell could become #UC head coach, with Coombs as defensive coordinator. Hmm.

    Tom Groeschen ‏@TomGroeschen 49m 49 minutes ago
    #UC has met in last day or so with '2 OSU assistants,' a source says. Read into that what you will.

    Tom Groeschen@TomGroeschen 18 mins ago
    Another #UC source just called and firmley said Bohn was not in Columbus today, has not met with OSU assistants. Round and round we go.

    USAT: Focus of coaching carousel lands on American Athletic Conference

    >>With Oregon hiring Willie Taggart on Wednesday, all of the Power Five jobs are filled, meaning the carousel will be relatively calm this year barring a surprise departure. The focus now shifts to the American Athletic Conference, where there are suddenly vacancies at Cincinnati, Houston, Temple and South Florida.

    The AAC has become college football’s prime launching pad league and a magnet for some of the top young coaching talent in the game. All four of those jobs are highly attractive opportunities, as coaches now see that winning in the AAC will lead to automatic interest from Power Five schools.<<

    LSU: Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda’s new three-year contract will pay him $1.8 million in 2017, with increases of $500,000 in the following two years. That's the highest salary for an assistant coach. His buyout is 40 percent of remaining salary if he leaves for a non-head coaching job within 500 miles of Baton Rouge and 15 percent if outside 500 miles. The buyout provision ends on Dec. 1, 2019.

    UConn's whole Assistant Coach pool is thought to be around $1,9k

    Just think though...by hiring Orgeron and paying Aranda $1.8 mill/yr they are still paying less than what Herman would have cost them. They may even be able to pay someone like Tiffin $1 mill/yr and still be in that same ballpark.
