    True, but don't you think if a real name coach was hired the recruits would notice? If they were hiring Stoops they would announce it as soon as possible.

    FSU may be waiting until all of the coaches in other programs get fired and take their pick of the litter.

    I was responding to the suggestion that FSU hire Stoops but not have him actually coach, just have him recruiting. But there's not that much recruiting going on in November. If you're just interested in putting a name out there, signing a contract that makes him the head coach following their bowl game would do the same thing, and you wouldn't have to pay him until then. Either way, you'd make it publicly known that you have a coach for next season.

    I think we are saying the same thing. Yeah, announce he is the coach after the bowl game, but damn well announce he is the coach.

    I'll settle for a letter of agreement, that's the same, right?

    How do the search firms get paid? Is it just a flat fee or a % of what the coach signs for? Is it up front or contingent on hiring someone they bring you?

    ******************3:45 UPDATE***********

    The coaching search has suddendly, (or not so suddenly, depending who you talk to)...become bleak for FSWho.....

    Take note: Nolie insider sources. powerbrokers and Josh Newburg reported every one of these as "done deals"

    They tried to overreach with Urban and the Bob... (there's a song there somewhere)..Urban didn't even give them a reply, and the Bob said that he spoke with someone once, and told them.NO
    They "Stooped" lower, for the younger and chunky...but NO!
    James Franklin said publically "Are you kidding?" NO
    PJ Fleck?? had his contract extended..NO
    Rhule??? Contract extended...NO
    They had their hopes focused on Norvell, but, that also looks, according to the latest update, as another big fat NO

    Meanwhile, Lane Kiffen was last spotted under a manhole cover iin downtown Tallacrappy thinking his voice would "resound", but, he forgot to take the manhole cover off, so his screams and pleads were only faint muffles coming out of the sewer grates, faintly cryiing "Pick me! Oh, God...pick me!!"

    Now that is the kind of counter intelligence report I expect from GC.

    Picking from a “litter” of fired coaches doesn’t sound like a good way to save your program.
