NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Urban Meyer done? Who do You hire? MY TOP 5
December 9, 2010, 10:35 AM
This is the talk of the town. Urban is gone and who will move in to take his spot?

My top 5 choices would be (no major order):

1) Gus malzahn-the new hot asst. that will bring the hurry up!
2) Dan Mullen- you have proven your worth no bring it back to an elite program
3) Mike Leach- Get the most out of Brantley before he is gone and will bring a pass heavy dose to UF.
4) Chris Peterson-the new hot coach and would still coach ORANGE AND BLUE
5) Kevin Sumlin- Ran crazy numbers at houston and could do even more with elite athletes.

All 5 are good choices! what do you think? Check out my blog later for more thoughts and discussion.

NO GRUDEN or any NFL COACHES!

They rarely translate well to CFB -- and yes I know some have but they are exceptions, not the rule.

Need to add Charlie Strong to the candidate list IMO.

Do you even know College football.....Chris Peterson is the coach from BOISE!

I guess you are still bitter over the GATORS beating your team 41-14 for it all and want to see them suck for awhile with a "great" coach from your list!

December 9, 2010  01:21 PM ET

I take back my comment about Gary Patterson leaving TCU...he is moving to a BCS conference in 2012....why not just load the team up and get ready to start winning it all. He wont move!

December 9, 2010  01:22 PM ET

December 9, 2010  01:23 PM ET
