    Where did Norvell go?

    I bet it's still a person no one is mentioning.

    Norvell is still at ASU and was just given a raise and the title of Deputy Head Coach and he will probably wait it out there to become Sheriff somewhere else.....no sense in him coming to UF or for UF to try and arm wrestle him away....that ship has sailed.....He would only be a Florida for one season and then be offered a good HC job somewhere, so I would rather see us with a more stable hire...

    I'll say Vanderbilt! James Franklin wont be there much longer. He is too good of a coach, recruiter and actually develops his players. Seems to do more with less.

    Andserson was actually the guy I was hoping we might get the past few days.

    This is going to end up being a major cluster-you-know-what before this is all said and done. Watch us end up bringing in Applewhite.

    Anderson was basically a Fedora disciple. Was with him at USM when they won C-USA B.E. (Before Ellis).
    Funny how Fedora's not good enough to be our HC, but his valet is good enough to be our OC.

    I am going with Helton, unless something happens between now and Monday. And then Applewhite will be the choice.

    Anderson's at Arkie State now. Kerwin Bell would never take the job here anyway because Muschamp's a control freak. Lane Kiffen would be an NCAA violation waiting to happen. Norvell isn't leaving Arizona State according to reports here. Major Applewhite would be just another Muschamp "yes man" that he could toss under the bus a year or two down the road like he did Pease. I have no idea what kind of pedigree Kim Helton's son has, but personally, it's a possible hire that makes me nervous.

    I think some here have made a pretty good observation about how any good OC may not want to come here beause they know Muschamp may get the axe after next season.

    Thank you Jeremy Foley!

    In the "thoughts of the day" (on the front page), FB says that Muschamp has gotten a lot of "Thanks, but no thanks!"

    Coming to UF next season for any OC out there is one of two things: a huge pay day (because he'll likely get a 3-year guarantee worth upwards of $2mil) - or - career suicide.

    Sure, there's probably a young, brash, up-and-coming OC out there that thinks he has what it takes....but at UF we should be able to bring in practically anyone we want (within reason).

    Coordinators move around so much that a possible 1 year gig isn't as threatening as it seems and nowhere near career suicide. Weiss got a head coaching job after a bad offense. Pease landed with his Boise buddies. Even Derrick Dooley's staff are employed. Chaney calls plays at Arkansas and Suseri is at FSU.

    Plus, if they end up doing well here, it pretty much guarantees a better position in the future.

    Well, I agree that "coaches" move around.....not necessarily "coordinators". Pease is taking a step down, and I imagine his goal when he accepted the UF job was to transition into a head coaching job.....not going back to the left coast with his tail tucked as a WRs coach.

    I don't blame Weis as much as I do it being a first year transition, a hurt senior QB from Game #5 on, zero experienced QB depth behind Brantley, and then literally o go-t0 receivers to rely on. Weis is a proven OC at both levels of the sport IMO. Now, I too thought it was best he go at the time, but I also realized later that I was hasty in my criticism of him as well.

    Weis' hands were tied his first season, but it wasn't Muschamp who fired him, it was Weis who left because of differences with Muschamp. Both parted ways amicably, but still, Weis, wanted to run the O his way, not Muschamp's.
