Arkansas coach Houston Nutt needs to go. Who are the good, young coaches out there that YOU would want coaching your favorite team?
If you were an AD, who would you go after?:-?

obviously you'd want pete carroll. but bob stoops would be #2. i think mike leech at tech is an intriguing pick. mark richt at georgia. but if you're talking about feasible options for arkansas, i think you could look at the defensive coordinator at OU brent venables. he's rumored to be at the top of the list for the kstate job.

I've liked Richt from day one ... I agree. But he wouldn't come.
Leach is another nice one ... Tech is on a roll. I wonder if we could get Bobby Knight too? :-?

Randy Shannon should be the, or close to, hottest assistant out there. Year after year the Miami D plays great and he is a huge part of it. He is African American so unfortunately he probably isn't getting some of the opportunities he should. From a selfish perspective I hope it stays that way as I don't want him to leave. But for him, some program needs to make the move.

I dont know how young he is, but Randy Walker at TCU would be a nice one to get.

He's an African American so he's probably missing opportunities? Did you just say that? What decade are you living in? In the 21st century, my friend, there is no hotter commodity than a black head football coach.... Teams all over the country are tripping all over themselves to hire one... In fact, there are rules and laws in place saying that you have to give a certain number of them consideration before you actually do any hiring... If anything, Shannon has an advantage over most other coaches because of his race, not a disadvantage...

Hello? And how many African American HC's in D1 are there again? What 3 or 4 out of how many teams? Oh yeah, teams are falling over themselves..... 8-o

Meant Gary Patterson. I always seem to get these two confused for some reason. :-B

If a given team is interviewing two candidates, both of which have identical qualifications, accomplishments, etc. and one of them is black and the other white, guess who gets the job?

I guaran-freaking-tee you it ain't the white guy....

If you're going to take ridiculous stands like this, then yes, I'm going to continue to disagree/correct you. There are no, "rules or laws" dictating the hiring process of a NCAA football coach in relation to minority candidates. It does exist in the NFL, however. http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=tb-minoritycoaches062905&prov=yhoo&type=lgns
