College football coaching in fluxPosted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -- The college football coaching landscape has begun to shift.
New Mexico is expected to announce former Notre Dame Coach Bob Davie as their new head man Thursday and the rumors coming out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina have Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn landing there to lead the Tar Heels.
So where does that leave Arizona.
Larry Fedora is on Greg Byrne's list, but with the recent firing of Houston Nutt at Ole Miss, he's also on the Rebels list.
Mississippi based college football writer Patrick Magee isn't sure Arizona is a job that Fedora would want.
"People think that he's just going to go for whatever school comes along that can double his salary but I don't think that's necessarily the case. I think he wants to go to a football school and Arizona isn't necessarily viewed as a football school in this part of the nation. If he knows he can go someplace where they are going to make a lot of investments in football, and of course give him a chance to boost his salary, I think that's going to be the most attractive situation for him," said Magee.
And that place might more likely be a spot like Texas A&M.
Fedora was born in college station, Texas and he's dream job would be to go home and coach for Greg Byrne's dad Bill and the Aggies, should Texas A&M decide this season or next to move on from their current Coach Mike Sherman.
