    Dan Mac News

    My sources tell me he will probably end up the head coach at South Alabama. They are just starting a football program. Probably a great situation for both Mac and the School.

    Cool... Good gig for him, he is a builder and not a next level guy, so that is a perfect fit.

    Re: Dan Mac News

    He is certainly interviewing for the job. USA is in the process of interviewing a number of people including former Southern Miss coach Jeff Bower, former Tulane coach Chris Scelfo, Auburn running backs coach Eddie Gran, Alabama defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, Mississippi State offensive coordinator Woody McCorvey, and Clemson wide receivers coach Dabo Swinner.

    Re: Dan Mac News

    I've always said Mac will end up at at small southern school with no football tradition or pressure to win. This would be a good fit for both him and the school. Best of luck to him if this where he lands.

    Re: Dan Mac News

    I would look at Mac as probably #3 on that list above...I lived in Nawlins for 5 years and the Southern Miss coach has a very good rep in that area. Chris Scelfo from Tulane an OK rep, and I don't know about the others. If Jeff Bowers is available and wants the job, I bet he gets it...he's already so familiar with the area...recruiting, etc.

    Just curious who your sources are... Are they in the media?

    Wow...I find the "commentary" in this article very interesting:

    "Commentary: Hard to tell if McCarney would be interested in jumping ship to Coral Gables. The pay and prestige most certainly would be there, but the pressure would be enormous. If accepted, this would definitely be a good hire for Randy Shannon."

    I believe Randy Shannon was the DC at Miami under Coker...usually the HC very involved in whatever side of the ball that he "earned his stripes" to get the HC job.

    Re: Dan Mac News

    I'll always wish him the best in life and hope he succeeds wherever he goes. I really can't say if he'd be better sticking with being a DC or build up some place as a head coach. All I know is the kids he coaches are in for a real treat.

    Looks like Miami has taken the KU DC:

    KU defensive coordinator heads for Miami

    And it looks like USA is interested in Dennis Franchione:

    Re: Dan Mac News

    I love Danny boy for all he did for ISU, but it is no coincidence that he can't get another head coaching gig...even at South Alabama or Northern Illinois. I really think he would have to go to FCS (old DI-AA) or DII to get a head gig as sad as that is.

    The only job he is going to have at a DI school is likely that of a coordinator.

    Re: Dan Mac News

    Will prove me wrong if that is the case, but looks like he wasn't/isn't 1st choice.

    Will be interesting to see if they offer him or look elsewhere at this point. If they look elsewhere, that will be a huge slap in the face.
