Ran across a article from Yahoo sports this afternoon , quite the write up. They talking about how the days for Les is numbered and that if KU can get it’s act together , saying which we haven’t for some time that we might be able to land a quality Coach. - Having said they they s was going to list some names about possible replacements. So here they are :
1. - - Willie Fritz Tulane : 60 years old , Familer with the area would probably be a good fit
2. - - Lance Leipold Buffalo : 56 years old , Coach of both Bowl Wins in Schools History , MAC Coach of the year twice His Name thrown about , Vanderbilt , Illinois , & Tennessee.
3 . - - Skip Holly Louisiana Tech : 56 years old , Led Tech to Bowl games the last 7 Seasons , Ability to put together staffs after constant churn of turnover and has the ability to ident
ity , recruit , and develop strong rosters every year. 21 Seasons a a Head Coach at hard jobs , like U Conn - - ECU - - -& USF - - -Louisiana Tech and only 6 losing Seasons.
4 .- - Troy Calhoun Air Force : 10 bowl games in his 14 Seasons and has won more then 58 % of his games .
5 . - - Jay Norvell Nevada : 57 years old , Extensive Big 12 Experience , Iowa State , Nebraska , Texas , & Oklahoma 22-13 over his last 3 years with 3 bowl appearances.
6 . - - Mike Elko Texas A & M DC : 44 years old Most Coveted assistant in next cycle fielding SEC"S top defense in 2020 Caliber of Coach KU would struggle to land in a more competitive Market.
7 . - -Jeff Monkey Army : Proven Winner , would provide upgrade & rebuilder High School roots in Illinois would give Natural MidWestern presence .
8 . Sean Lewis Kent State : Name has come in Searches last 2 cycles including UCF this year, led the Nation in Scoring this Season at 49.8 per game although only played 4 games lol - - has shown the ability to execute in most difficult circumstances.
9 .- - Ken Niumatalolo Navy : 55 years old Proven Winner who would install discipline and identity in a program that has lacked both since Mangino left town has gone 101-67 with 11 bowl games in 14 Seasons.
10 . - -Jason Candle Toledo : Guy has won 65 % of his games , a MAC Title Candle interviewed for Missouri & Boston College two years ago and his Offense and play calling Pedigree would fit well in the wide open Big 12.
11 - - Mike Nice ? - - Ball State : MAC champs 2020 Nice brings dynamic passing game from his time with the New Orleans Saints and just showed the patience to endure a long rebuild at Ball State.
Then Yahoo talked about the possibility of KU naming an Interim Coach - -And they were ,:
1 Long has tabbed OC Coach Mike Debord as the point person for now - -Debord chances depend on who is in charge. Has close relationships with Long and Miles both , that could hurt his chance and only been her a month and hasn’t had time to build strong relationship with the players.
2 They said if KU decides to fire Long , & hire a new AD and then they run a search for after 2021 then most likely Candidate would be DC Cordinator DJ Elliot . 9 Seasons as a DC at a P-5 school and has had stints at Kentucky & Colorado. Of the returning Coaches he would be by far the best resume.
What a mess , Who knows - -but just passing along
