Have they hired someone yet?

He probably would be a good fit there.

Maybe that was part of the “mutual.”

TCU gets to try a coach without having to pay his buyout and VA Tech moves on without too much fanfare over firing him.

Who knows, just spitballing…

He's gonna have to either be a coordinator somewhere or he'll be a head coach at a lower job (almost certainly not P5 level).

Remember, we hired Tommy West as DC after he was fired from a better HC job, then promoted him.

It'll be hard for him to come back from this.

Is TCU a good HC position?

Wonder what he would do with this freshman QB…

He was a heck of an offensive coach.

Justin was born and raised in Tulsa. The TU fans hate the current guy and have wanted him gone for several years...

I thought I heard TCU and Sonny Dykes already have a secret deal.

Fuente to SMU?

In Foowhentay's presser at VT he stated one HUGE reason for his decision.

"This job comes with all those things wrapped up in a COMMUNITY that I can raise my three girls in and that was a HUGE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO ME."

Bro... They had a lot of friends at St. Louis and still keep in touch.

Not saying he doesn't like Blacksburg more, just that he liked it here.

I had the fortune of getting to know him while he was here, they aren't coming back to Memphis, his wife didn't feel safe here with the husband gone so much. And we wouldn't do that anyway.

Word on the street and out in the open for everyone to see was that 'Tom' was a big part of the reason Fuente left. Tom was purported to be 'difficult'...especially when he was partying. Who knows, though. I just remember at one point...Tom had been authorized to offer a certain amount of $$ to keep Fuente here...and Fuente said he never got that offer.

Now let's see who steps up to defend 'Tom'. lol

Yeah So what if, Tom pushed Fuente out.... he was very helpful in getting rid of Tubby and hiring Penny.

03-phew

I always liked Fuente. He took over a dumpster fire that had burned out and was ashes.

I've never heard of a college hiring a coach back who left them. But I don't follow coaches and their paths.

Has that happened?
