Of course Taggart desperately wants that job since its still his recruits that are there and probably no one else will take him after what he did to Oregon and how poorly FSU faired under him

Early in the week, Healy had emerged as an option for the Missouri job, according to multiple sources.

Attention bottom 50 programs...no one wants your career killing job
Conference realignment has made some P5 football and basketball jobs much more difficult. For example, adding Texas A&M to the SEC West means the ceiling for Arkansas and Ole Miss is the 5th or 6th best program in the division. Sure, you can have a good year, but you can not consistently win at those schools. Why would any up and coming G5 coach or P5 coordinator take the Arkansas or Ole Miss jobs unless they have previous ties to the school or state? Look at Ole Miss schedule for next year. These are the teams they play in 5 consecutive weeks: Auburn, @LSU, Alabama, @Vandy, Florida (and then UConn!). And, they play Baylor and @Texas A&M.

Last 5 coaches at Ole Miss lasted: 3, 5, 4, 3 years before being fired. Last 5 coaches at Arkansas lasted: 2, 5, 1, 4 years before being fired.

This and the equivalent impact it has on the fan base (despair / declining attendance / and ultimately declining revenues) is why the P5 would be foolish to breakaway. The P5 needs the G5 to help puff up their records and accomplishments, otherwise in a closed system schools like Wake, Vandy, Arkansas, Northwestern, Rutty are in a permanent bottom. Right now the same list is in a near permanent bottom.

In the long run, I think the entire FBS should have a scale that gives non bowl teams 5 more scholarships and 5 more transfer exemptions to help close what has become a widening gap.

Does this mean our next hire is coming from pee wee’s
I feel it will come from a proven FCS / DII or even possibly a DIII head coach..... someone from the northeast with several years of demonstrated ability to run a program. Someone making a big step up. Someone like what Buffalo did with Lance Leipold. I dont we are willing to pay enough to get any other type of coach....unless we get someone looking for a sunset job who already made their $$ elsewhere.
