So you thought college football coaching news in the triangle ended when NC State nabbed Dave Doeren in less than a week?… WRONG!!
With the coaching carousel in full spin mode right now rumors about job openings and who is going where are popping up daily. One interesting one this morning….
Tennessee interviewing UNC’s Larry Fedora about their head coaching job. That is right , could Fedora leave town after one year at Chapel Hill and head to the almighty SEC?
Here is what is being said on Tarheelblog.com. Is he really considering leaving or maybe using this as a way to get more money, kind of like Les Miles at LSU. It was pointed out that Fedora could have taken an SEC job last year at Texas A&M in his hometown, College Station, TX. Or he could bethinking of leaving because of more possible punishment for UNC football. When is the Martin Report coming out anyway?
This also from Tarheelblog.com It should be pointed out that this is happening in New York where Fedora and Bubba Cunningham are both in town for the National Football Foundation awards banquet. This even draws coaches and AD from every school to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel where all sorts of networking and yes discussions about open job vacancies happen. If you recall, Cunningham did the bulk of his work during this event last year in hiring Fedora.
Right now it clearly in the yes he is/no he isnt interviewing phase.
Tennessee camp: Fedora is a finalist and has already interviews. North Carolina camp: No interview scheduled.— Joe Ovies (@joeovies) December 4, 2012
Other coaching talk.
Apparently Auburn is going hard after Kirby Smart. Now sounds like Gus Malzahn will be back at Auburn, this time as the head coach.
Yahoo! Sports exclusive: Bret Bielema leaving Wisconsin for Arkansas.http://t.co/8BjhUZgm More to come— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) December 4, 2012
Mike (I’m a man, I’m 40) Gundy to Arkansas from Ok. State. Bret Bielema heading to Arkansas from Wisconsin. Apparently this news stirred up a helping of possible #NCStateSheeeeeet with thoughts of Doeren backing out of his deal and heading back to Wisconsin. I dont see that happening.
