    The Ripple Effects of the Wildest Coaching Carousel in College Football History - The Ringer
    This is an interesting read about the coaching carousel. Kelly is mentioned and so is CLF. He does mention that college coaches are making more now than pro coaches.

    The longer the ND job stays open (remember early signing date is just two weeks off), the more likely he will take the job. He will not desert the team like BK did in 2009.

    This bothers me. I know coaches come and go and a contract around $10M per year is hard to turn down. Luke is only human. If we win this weekend, he stays. If we lose, all bets are off because along with losing a potential spot in the CFP, we will also lose any chance of a good bowl game. Sad. I so hope I am wrong and he stays around and we become the class of the Big 12.

    Supposedly Days name is out there as Chicago Bears replacement. Fick would probably be first choice if that happened and he might be waiting for that domino before a ND commitment. Freeman would be an o$u candidate also, plus a huge LSU salary to follow scum bag there and be DQ. Probably more than we could pay for HC. That might not happen as supposedly Freeman ripped Kelly a new one in their exit meeting with the players, further endearing himself with the team.
    I too don't get the Kingsbury option??? Why leave what might be the best NFL team to go back to college and deal with boosters and pampered 18 year olds?

    Why in the world would Cliff Kingsbury, coach of the current top seeded AZ Cardinals in the NFL, be interested in a step down to college? Makes no sense. What am I missing?

    I was thinking the same thing. Luke is probably headed to o$u, Freeman will get ND. I would love to have either but that's how I see the chips falling. Gino might be a viable option.
    If Fick can guide the guys to a win Saturday, and keep them focused for a bowl game, it will be an unbelievable accomplishment and unheard of in these selfish and money grabbing times. He has more class than most of these bozos and certainly more compassion and respect for players and schools. Lets hope we can commit to facilities upgrades and sweeten the pot for him to stay but $ is not his driving factor and it will be hard for him to pass on lifetime ambitions. It would also be hard for him to stay for a month until bowl games are over but whatever he does I expect to be handled as well as possible and with regard for all others involved and not just himself. This could exclude him from opportunities but either they really want him and will wait or he sees it through out of commitment and integrity. I have a big worry about losing recruits and transfers in addition to this large senior class. Freeman would be best qualified to stop that bleeding and get us back to where we want to be but a couple year drop off is inevitable. If Fick stays, it would be the ultimate defiance of regrettable industry trends and the most respectable decision imaginable. Lets pray it happens, hope we can stay focused to finish the job either way, but its hard not to envision our situation without his leadership.
