A short list of coaches that could be looking to move up the ladder
David Cutcliffe - Duke (being rumored at Tennessee if they make a change)
Art Briles - Baylor (being rumored at Arkansas)
Paul Rhoads - Iowa State (being rumored at Auburn which is funny)
Butch Jones - Cincinnati (being rumored at Tennessee)
Charlie Strong - Louisville (being rumored at Arkansas)
Pat Fitzgerald - Northwestern
Willie Taggart - Western Kentucky (being rumored at Kentucky)
I'm amazed that nobody mentions Pat Fitzgerald for any job openings. The guy is only 37 years old but has a record of 47-38 at Northwestern and needs just one more win to have them bowl eligible for the 6th year in a row.
I don't think that Arkansas believes they can get Charlie Strong who likely can do better if he waits at Louisville. They were talking about Art Briles having connections to Arkansas today on the radio.
Supposedly Butch Jones and Charlie Strong are at the top of Tennessee's list but David Cutcliffe is seen as a fall back plan.
If Auburn hires Paul Rhoads that would be hilarious because he comes from Iowa State just like Chizik. But even funnier in that he was the defensive coordinator at Auburn when Chizik took over and he opted not to keep him on the staff and Rhoads went on to get the job at Iowa State where he done a better job than Chizik and now is being rumored to take his job at Auburn.
