We are not stalling for a big announcement.

Jim Harbaugh: Defensive coordinator? No, we demand the top man himself. If Michigan fans want to complain about a guy with a 47-17 record, give him here, you entitled so-and-so’s.

Buddy Teevens: A spry 63 years old and coming off two straight 9 win seasons at Dartmouth—grab him while he’s hot.

Paul Peterson: The former Continental Tire Bowl MVP has Dixie State playing some good ball, going 8-3 against 11 schools I have sincerely never heard of in my life.

Bret Bielema: The Patriots defensive line coach/possible cinematographer made local headlines this week when he claimed to be receiving some interest for collegiate positions. Bielema had a tremendous run as head coach of Wisconsin from 2006-2012. After leading the Badgers to three straight Rose Bowls, he left for the Arkansas job, where he was fired after five sub-par seasons.

Mike Norvell:

Eli Drinkwitz:

Lance Leipold: The peak of Leipold’s tenure at Buffalo was a 10-4 season in 2018, but with a 30-32 record in five seasons, I’m not sure this would be an upgrade over Daz. As always, be wary of the MAC.

Butch Jones: I didn’t realize this was a thing, but Jones is currently making $35,000 a year as an “analyst” at Alabama, which is really just a way for him to stay in the game whilst getting paid out the $8.3 million owed to him by Tennessee. College football is weird, man.

Matt Burke: Burke was a grad assistant at BC from 2000-2002. He has bounced around the NFL since 2004, including a brief stint as the Dolphins defensive coordinator (but was not retained by BC man Brian Flores (Hey wait, why not Brian Flores while we’re at it?)). He’s currently a defensive special assistant with the (Philadelphia) Eagles.

Urban Meyer: OK, I think that’s enough of this.
