    Texas coaches

    If reports are true (which I hope not) and Mack Brown steps down as coach of Texas, are there any assistant coaches that are on his current staff that you guys would like to see ISU try to hire? ISU has no shot at their Defensive Coordinator (the guy made a huge impact on that side of the ball for them). I hope the reports are not true but if Brown steps down then I hope Satan, I mean Saban stays at Alabama.

    The assistants all coach "the way Mack wants them to....". From the outside, its hard to tell who is the good coordinator/position coach/recruiter and who is just "friends with Mack".

    Re: Texas coaches

    I gotta believe Mack Brown stays unless they KNOW Saban will sign on the dotted line. My guess is Saban has a tough decision to make and is wishy washy right now, which is why this whole Mack Brown "expected" to resign later this week stuff is hitting the street. Texas probably gave Saban a deadline to decide of Friday-Saturday or Sunday night. IMO, the only reason Brown is "expected to resign" (or forced to) is if Saban says he is coming to Texas. Otherwise they would have fired him by now. Kind of crappy of Texas IMO.

    Re: Texas coaches

    I think the timing of all this is mostly about Texas wanting to be in the limelight, even after a disappointing football season (defined as not making a BCS bowl) and diverting attention away from the forthcoming bad basketball season.

    Re: Texas coaches

    I really think Mack will resign, but I have no idea who they'd hire if they can't get Saban. A lot of the good options are already taken. There is always the coordinators route to go also. Honestly, if Brown is done and they can't get Saban I wouldn't be stunned if Tom Herman was near the top of their list.

    Especially since the guy won Texas several conference championships and a national title. It's really too bad he won't leave on his terms and is being forced out like this. Another reason why college football is all about money anymore.

    Re: Texas coaches

    Some of the coaching search websites have Jim Harbaugh as a candidate


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Heard a lot down here, that he may remain in some role at the university as a "consultant," cut his pay in half, but have him still be around the program.

    Hard to imagine Jim Harbaugh being able to get along with all the big time Texas donors. He just doesn't seem like the glad-handing cocktail party type.

    Yeah, would be VERY interesting to be a fly on the wall in the AD office down that way. I'm sure agents are calling on behalf of Saben and Mack, gauging donor interests, etc (all knowing Alabama is doing the same thing).

    If they do make him "resign," and fall short with the next hire, there certainly would be fans frustrated. I'm sure though they basically are willing to pay more than they are for Mack and that is in the upper $5 mil range, so they could attract about anyone they wanted to.

    I'm not sure Texas knows who they will hire if Saban doesn't come either. Seems like they are rolling the dice and trying to seize this opportunity while the iron is hot. I'd be ok with it if Brown was already gone. But what a classless move by their Administration to slow play Mack Brown like this.

    I don't know why anybody would go down to college to coach when they are successful as an NFL HC and don't have to recruit players. Maybe Texas would make the pay better but it isn't worth it IMHO.

    I promise you he is not a candidate at Texas.

    It just wouldn't stun me. At this point their options would be NFL coaches, college coordinators, and less then impressive college head coaches.

    Petrino (Falcons) and Saban (Dolphins) went down to college from pro. A lot of college head coaches make more than pro coaches.

    EDIT: Just re-read your post and Petrino and Saban weren't successful NFL coaches.
