    Law, thought you'd find this interesting regarding Mike Sanford Sr.:

    Two FCS head coaches have now stepped down to be FBS assistants.

    Indiana State’s Mike Sanford Sr. will join his son’s staff at Western Kentucky, and on Tuesday, Elon’s Rich Skrosky resigned to join the FIU staff as offensive coordinator.

    Last year, Joe Moorhead stepped down at Fordham to join the Penn State staff. With increasing assistant salaries and security at the FBS level, it’s more of an option for coaches at that level. There are now 6 open FCS head coaching jobs.

    I hope that means he's joining us again.

    Locks is the kind of interim I'd like. Damn sure don't want to see the coCaine as interim when Donkey gets fired.

    Why is that impressive? Who says son will coach O like dad? It's pure speculation.

    What I do know is that Boca Raton's finest better hire a few more rape kit processors for the force with that crew in town.

    It's impressive because he ran a top 5 offense. Hell, it would be impressive for us. We hire guys who just got fired for producing the 110th ranked offense.

    Wasn't he the actual OC?

    For only one season - the 2015-2016 season, for the team his daddy coached. He never worked for anyone other than daddy briles.

    Are you suggesting that because he was the OC for one season that the credit for the offensive firepower at Baylor goes to Kendal briles and not his father?

    Were that really the case, he wouldn't be taking a step down to OC for FAU, willful ignorance of a rape problem notwithstanding.

    And yet... I'd take him over Nusschamp in a millisecond. Briles OCs have been pretty successful elsewhere.

    He ran his daddy's already well established top 5 offense for one year, which is to say his dad continued running his top 5 offense.

    Look, he may turn out to be a brilliant, innovative offensive mind, but let's not pretend that he was responsible for the offensive success at Baylor.

    That said, I would swap him for Nuss, but that's not exactly saying much for Briles.

    Correct on the swap, in that he did not befoul that offense down to 100th place among competitors.

    The reason he doesn't have more offers is because he's under investigation for recruiting violations. Not because he's in love with lane kiffin.

    Talk about character issues from the start! Not saying it won't be good for FAU football, but talk about an institution selling out in favor of "W"s. Can't wait to see who else they add.

    What a weird time to fire a guy, wonder what happened behind the scenes.

    As coaching advisors, they've added a family of gypsies who do driveways and roofs during the week.

    All the teams outside the Power 5 conferences should go to 1AA or something between 1AA and 1A.

    Oregon: Defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt will make $1.15 million per year in a four year contract reports Andrew Greif of the Oregonian. No current Pac-12 assistants make over $1 million per year. Leavitt would owe Oregon a small buyout should he leave to accept any position other than as head coach at Kansas State which he could freely leave for.

    Charlie Strong taking a page out of Mac's book:

    South Florida: Former FAU cornerbacks coach Corey Bell will join the USF staff as cornerbacks coach, according to 247Sports. Bell spent three years at FAU and has previously served as a high school coach in Miami.

    Urban Meyer is cut-throat: cans his OC after the playoff game for a sh*tty performance (maybe another coach should take notice):

    Ohio State: Former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson is expected to join the Ohio State staff as offensive coordinator, according to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman, who says the side are meeting today. Someone else would have to leave the full-time staff to open up a spot for Wilson.

    Ohio State: Former 49ers quarterbacks coach Ryan Day has joined the Ohio State staff as quarterbacks coach. Day spent one year with the 49ers and the previous year with the Eagles. He was a Florida graduate assistant under Urban Meyer in 2005. He was Boston College offensive coordinator from 2013-14 and Temple offensive coordinator in 2012, working with former Florida assistant Steve Addazio.

    Cincinnati: Ohio State quality control assistant Joker Phillips will follow Luke Fickell to Cincinnati, according to ABC6 in Columbus and multiple reports. Phillips spent one year at Ohio State after one year with the Cleveland Browns. He was at Kentucky from 2003-12, spending the final three years as head coach.

    ----

    Interesting move by Herman (picks up Beck after Meyer fired him):

    Texas: Scout.com’s Chip Brown reports Tom Herman will hire Ohio State co-offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach Tim Beck as Texas offensive coordinator. Beck spent two years at Ohio State as Herman’s successor. He was Nebraska’s offensive coordinator under Bo Pelini from 2011-14 and has also coached at Kansas. Brown adds that Beck will call the offense at Texas.

    South Carolina: For the open offensive line job, Will Muschamp has interviewed 49ers assistant OL coach Eric Wolford, Florida OL coach Mike Summers and Tennessee quality control assistant Walt Wells, according to SB Nation.

    ----

    Jedd Fisch is a great story. He is a UF grad, but never played football. Sorta did what Charlie Weiss's son is trying to do. He was a student assistant at UF under Spurrier, became a HS coach...moved back into a support role in CFB...then got an assistant job in CFB and is now a high paid assistant that has had several jobs at bigger schools:

    UCLA: Michigan quarterbacks / wide receivers coach Jedd Fisch will be the new offensive coordinator at UCLA, according to Fox Sports. Fisch spent two years at Michigan and was previously the Jaguars offensive coordinator.

    Minnesota has met with PJ Fleck and Navy's coach. Would be surprised is Fleck ended up there when he could have got a much bigger job.

    Agree. Fleck should hold out one more year. He'll be the most sought after non-Power 5 coach next season, especially if he wins 9-10+ games again.

    The Navy coach would be nuts to leave there for that job. He'd make a little more money, but not much and would struggle vs. the power teams in that conference. He has it made where he is.

    I would be shocked if Niumatalolo went to Minnesota. He turned down BYU last year. They should look at Lucky Les or Chris Klieman from ND State.

    This is pretty amazing:

    Northwestern: Pat Fitzgerald tells the Chicago Tribune he plans for the entire staff to return. Fitzgerald has had the same nine assistants for six straight years.

    I'm really surprised no one has picked up Fitzgerald. He has to have one of the toughest academic standards and has been bowl eligible 7 of his 11 years there.

    Bad move by Fleck:

    Minnesota: Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck has accepted the Minnesota head coaching job, according to Sports Illustrated and multiple reports. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports Fleck is expected to have a 5-year deal that pays around $3.5 million annually.

    I thought he would wait for a bigger coaching gig. It's a great hire, IMO.
