Bowen was such an uninspired hire considering we were supposed to be going all out and we were making him the highest paid assistant in CUSA. 

Always thought if I could have had 350k to spend I could have done a whole lot better than Bowen.

5 Things I was hoping the new DC would have.   1. DC experience 2. Success at FBS level as a DC 3. TXHSFB ties 4. Shown an ability to make adjustments. 5. Head Coaching e

We need SL to work out.  He has built the bridges we desperately needed for so long. I don’t know for sure, but I think we lose all that and any potential momentum if he’s let go after 2021. Ther

It’s interesting. I’ve seen several on this board say that Seth runs it up the middle predictably, and I’ve seen several on this board say that CUSA is easily the weakest conference in Ameri

Brian Stewart- current Baylor cornerbacks coach.  Has more ties to Texas as former DC at Houston, also was DC and interim HC at Rice.  Lots of experience coaching DB's both in college and in the NFL.

Rocky Long- current DC at New Mexico.  Checks all the boxes, but would only have minimal TXHSFB ties.  His daughter is currently a professor at UNT.

David Gibbs- current DB coach at Missouri.  Most recently had DC and interim HC experience at Tech and Houston.

Joseph Gillespie- current DC at Tulsa.  Spent 20 years at Stephenville as HC and also worked under Art Briles and Chad Morris. This would probably be my pick if I had to guess who this was about.

I'm sure there are a handful more, but these were 4 guys who checked the boxes.

 

Patrick Toney at ULL checks all but one of the boxes, but will probably get snatched by a P5 this off season.

How soon do you expect an announcement? I would imagine it would have to be fairly quickly to start game-planning, recruiting, and hitting the transfer portal for guys that fit his scheme.

It’s good he checks the boxes and Littrell has him in his sights.....

but does this candidate have US in HIS sights?

 

I don’t think he would interview unless he was interested, but there is a small army of board members that believe they would interview simply to leverage other opportunities.

 

I don’t go down that rabbit hole.

Coaches (and many other professionals) interview for leverage. Or at a minimum it can be a win-win for them. Either get the offer that makes you walk away or use the offer for a better deal.

See Jim Harbaugh circa 2006.

Saw this on Twitter. Don’t know what to think of it and it’s reliability 

Me thinks its Ekler.. and that would be another extremely disappointing promotion.  Hopefully I'm wrong

If Wren and Co were to say we could either make a big splash at OC or DC, but not both, which are you choosing?

DC. Hands down. They need the most help. And SL is supposed to be the offensive guru on staff.
