    That's the main reason I don't think we can get him but on the other hand he is quite limited by the lack of resources NW has. If he wants to win big, he might need to strongly consider a move no matter how strong his ties are.

    SEC defenses would figure our Chris Peterson in a heartbeat. & I think he knows it.

    I'm still in Muschamp's corner but if he is fired, personally I'd like to see David Shaw in Orange and Blue.

    If you were coaching at Stanford would you leave to coach at UF?

    David Shaw is an interesting idea.

    Spurrier would definitely bring the swagger back to the program. SOS could bring Kerwin onboard as the QB coach and coach in waiting... Not sure if Foley & Spurrier could co-exist again. Having Spurrier officially retiring as a Gator and Bell as the next HBC would be AWESOME!!! Okay, I'll wakeup out of this dream...

    Tim DeRuyter is a good choice imo. He took over Fresno in 2012 and went 9-4 (they were 4-9 the year before he was hired). They are 8-0 this season and he was interim coach for Texas A&M in the bowl game in 2011 and they won that. Fresno has a high powered offense and he was a DC many seasons.

    Our job should be one of the most alluring in college football.

    Somehow if we leave it 3 more games, I fear we might struggle to interest anyone of note...

    Well, to us, sure, but not to most other coaches.

    David Shaw would be an absolute home run hire at UF. He is a complete HC and runs a top shelf disciplined program.

    I get the injuries on offense. But our defense should never look that bad against Vandy who was starting an inexperienced QB.

    He has shown the ability to maintain a top notch program/culture. He has yet to show he can create or even rebuild a top notch program/culture. The two skills don't always go hand in hand.

    Intriguing idea. I can go with it.

    I am with most on here where I don't see a clear choice. Sumlin is highly unlikely. Briles is obviously a good coach but I am not begging for him.

    What about the Northern Illinois HC?

    Any NFL guys that make sense? A Pete Carroll type that wasn't great in the NFL? Maybe the Texans DC? Cam Cameron I think. He was the Dallas HC and wasn't good but maybe he could do well in college. Any chance Kelly bails on Philly? Crazy idea: Shanahan? Is he still even coaching? I know nothing about the NFL.

    Gundy at OSU is interesting but he is an OSU alum I think. Probably not leaving. Same for Fitzgerald.

    In 12 years as a high school coach, he won four state titles.
    He took over a Houston team that was 8-26 the three years before. He took them to four bowls in five years.
    He took over a Baylor team that had 12 straight losing seasons and that had little talent.
    Yes, the first two years were 4-8 seasons.
    The third was 7-5 with a bowl loss.
    The fourth was 10-2, a Heisman winner and a bowl win.
    Last season was 7-5 and a bowl win.
    And this year they're a legitimate BCS contender.

    That was at doormat Houston and doormat Baylor. Imagine what he could do at a recruiting powerhouse with big time talent.

    I take it you don't follow the NFL much. Wade Philips is the Texans' DC. Cam Cameron is LSU's OC. Shanahan is HC of the Redskins.

    Chris Petersen is the obvious choice. Looks like USC wants Baylor's coach. That leaves us as his best option. Make it so, JF.
