Per Mike Irwin of Pig Trail Nation,
Arkansas' number one target: Gus
More details in the short video.

That would take a lot of money, I'm sure. But that would mean potential coaching changes at:
TN
Florida
Arkansas
Auburn
Texas A&M
Ole Miss
Miss St (if one of the other schools hires Mullen)

I'm guessing that never before have 7 SEC schools gotten a new coach in the same year.

Miss State is expected to be even better next season with those returning. Mullen may not want to leave a good situation and face a re-building or re-structuring job elsewhere immediately. But greater money at a school with a bigger name and better recruiting options, may be enough to lure him away. It's a choice of taking on a new challenge with bigger incentives, or hang onto a comfortable and optimistic situation for the next season. He may decide to wait another year. When he lets his name float, MSU comes up with more money and contract accommodations.

Here's the current list of number one candidates per prospective school you listed.
Tenn--Gruden
Florida--Chip Kelly
Arkansas--Gus Malzahan
Auburn--????
Texas A&M--Jimbo Fischer
Ole Miss--????
MSU---Dan Mullen

RE: Florida lawyer says Gators honing in on Chip Kelly
I'll be honest, and say I don't know about Malzahn. He could stay in an iffy situation @ Auburn or he could bolt for more job security and closer to home in Arkansas. He could go either way and I would not be surprised for any direction he takes. If the Gus bus does leave for Arkansas, I believe Auburn would reach out to Mike Leach at Washington State, simply because his offense is similar to Gus Malzahn's. Auburn can be a stressful place to coach, especially with the big, giant elephant (Bama) in the room, but something that is actually in Auburn's favor, when it comes to recruiting is that although the state Auburn is located in is not known for producing a lot of talent, Auburn is extremely close to at least one state that is well-known for producing a lot of high school football talent, so Auburn is not nearly disadvantaged as Oregon or Mississippi State are. Auburn really needs to sell the fact that they are practically on the Alabama-Georgia state line, IMO, and 'Bama's claim that Auburn is the university of/for western Georgia is actually a huge selling point in Auburn's favor.

There's only one thing that leads to job security, winning consistently. While I don't care what happens with Malzahn, Arkansas is not a place where anyone has won consistently since the days of Lou Holtz. Houston Nutt had some success but Arkansas is not a great get as a job in its current condition.

As to Auburn, it has never had an issue recruiting Georgia, Tennessee, or Florida until it was dragged to the West because of Alabama. Our natural rivals are in the East and only people under 30 don't realize that our schedule consisted of Tennessee, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Florida for decades prior to 1992. There is nobody in the West that we played regularly except for Alabama and we played all of the others named more often than we played Alabama. Mississippi State is the only school in the West besides Alabama that Auburn had a history with. We seldom played Ole Miss or L.S.U. prior to '92. The only school in the East we didn't have a history with was Kentucky.

So when Arkansas and South Carolina were added Auburn should have refused to move, but we were promised that it would be of short duration and when we added more we would be moved back. We weren't.

BTW: I didn't close this thread. I think my cat did. She was walking across the keyboard when I got off the phone. I just noticed it and reopened the thread, sorry.

Remember that Fisher & Malzahn have the same agent, Jimmy Sexton. Sexton is a master of playing off schools against each other to max the salary offer out. I wouldn't be surprised if he knew Malzahn was moving to Arkansas that he would dangle A&M to bid up Auburn or vice versa.

I think Auburn might well consider Dabo too. In the Auburn mind Dabo has beaten Saban, recruits very well, and runs a version of Mazahn's offense. They also know that Bama would go after him when Saban retires. Bear wanted Bama to go after Pat Dye and Auburn got him first. This is a very similar situation. I think the pocket books would open wide knowing that Dabo with two years under his belt at Auburn when Saban retires would likely tip the balance back to the Eastern half of the State.

I agree that Dabo would be a great get, but would he leave Clemson where he should have a lifetime contract at this point? Easier path to the CFP and all that. Money talks, but so does stability.
