08:17 AM ET 12.10 | Among the coaches to whom AD Kirby Hocutt has spoken about Miami's vacant head coaching job: Dan Mullen, Randy Edsall and Tommy Tuberville. According to a UM source, Hocutt also plans to speak with Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, who was granted permission by Nebraska to pursue the job. According to another source, Pelini has shown mixed signals, at some points expressing interest and at other points conveying reservations. ... Edsall is receiving strong consideration, and Temple's Al Golden also is of interest. With Florida coach Urban Meyer's resignation Wednesday, it is now highly unlikely that UM would land Mullen -- the former UF offensive coordinator and close friend of Meyer's.

I guess I'll break the news boys. I'm going to be the new coach at Miami.

So soon SVT will be shouting "FIRE VFH!"

Take it Bo cuz we are going to pick up your DLine and maybe LB coach anyway.

Would that be ironic, Nebraska can't beat Texas and looking to their staff to help fix problems with the Horns'.

I think Randy Edsall is the best choice.

The way things went this year for you guys you might end up with Okie lite's defensive coaches and Nebraska's receivers coaches.

Hey 56th, why is Pelini shopping? Other than climate, is Miami really that much better of a job than Nebraska? I know recruiting is easier but Nebraska has proven they can recruit and win. Besides, Pelini is a Big 10 guy and seems a much better fit in that conference. Is he on the outs with the admin?

No doubt. Wouldn't that be hell on wheels.Can't do much right now with all the HC job openings though. The dominoes need to fall first so we have an idea of where everyone starts heading before we pluck position coaches.

Still more openings to come me thinks.

AF, you got me. I'm working on it. I have a couple of sources ( not like SVT has sources ), but haven't had a chance to talk to them. I'm wondering if Bo Peep got a real dressing down by the Chancellor and TO after the A & M debacle and is now being petulant. I don't see Miami as a fit. However, if he can put out a defense with the guys we have, I can't imagine what he could do with a bushel of Florida talent.

If he thought TO was in his kitchen about his temper I can't see Shalala being any better about that sort of thing. I just can't see Miami as a long term deal for him but he does seem to fit at Nebraska. JMO

Assuming he even wants to go, Pelini isn't going to leave Nebraska before the bowl game. No matter what way you look at it, Miami is going to take a beating in the recruiting game this year the longer this drags on. Their saving grace is that Urban is gone up north. FSU could really retake the state of Florida. Two weeks ago I wouldn't have imagined that outcome.

And in other news....The Heisman Trust has commissioned the portrait of their newest member in the Heisman Fraternity. The $Cam Newton portrait will be of his hand, suffed with ca$h.

Athletic director Tom Osborne told the Lincoln Journal Star that he has not given Pelini permission to speak to Miami about the job, and Pelini says he didn't seek permission to interview for another job. Pelini wouldn't otherwise comment publicly on the report.

I would tend to believe Dr. Tom more than un-named sources!

IMO, I think Pelini should stay at Nebraska. The BIG10 has more upside potential than the ACC.
