Dang would love to have him
Oregon State is everything to Riley. He's had plenty if other opportunities. I respect the guy immensely for his dedication to Oregon State. ESPN did a really good piece on it and referenced his dad's time coaching there and what it meant to him.
Thanks for the info! +1
How about Ken Sparks?
lots of good prospects. 2 not mentioned that are favs of mine are
Frank Solich (Ohio) - won everywhere he's been. Nebraska not been same since he left
Pat Fitzgerald (Northwestern) - wins at NW every year (extremely hard to do). He's a former player but he would have to at least consider the tradition of the SEC and Tennessee if we made a legitimate $$$ run at him.
IT TAKES NO TALENT TO HUSTLE
Pretty good list but how is Al Golden not on there
Al Golden was added.
Of Realistic College Coaches...
Stoops sold his house may be looking to get out.
Strong is an SEC guy, maybe he will leave
Golden is in a worse mess then us, and still has NCAA looming
Patterson would get a pay raise, and coach in the best conference
Fisher has problems w/ FSU administration and could be looking to get out.
Frank Solich from OHIO should be on this list. He had a great record (for an unrealistic fan base - NE still has not recovered from his firing) at Nebraska. He has done a great job at Ohio (darn near beat UT in Knoxville - beat Penn State this year). Why not try something different? Why wait in line behind AL, GA, and SC for the same type of players? Peterman is mobile enough to run that offense - which, BTW, chews up a lot of game clock (our pathetic defense needs this). Solich is a proven winner at a big school and a mid-major (116-60 career record - 58–19 at NE). Lots of head coaching experience.
Agree with you DC. Check about 3 or 4 posts up. Solich is/would be solid!
Two great coaches. Fitzgerald BLEEDS purple, so he would be very hard for anyone to dislodge. Worth asking, however.
