Now that Tommy Bowden has
been fired mutually agreed to step down at Clemson, we can look at potential candidates. Muschamp's name will surface for every job, but I don't think this is the one. While traveling the internet, I found these guys as potentials (in my order of likelihood):
Lane Kiffin - the first name in the hopper with Muschamp; he could start now and the AD has ties to Lane's dad
Dabo Swinney - the guy that holds the interim tag; meet expectations and you never know --ask Stewart at WVA. Swinney is a relative unknown to me, but is supposed to be a stud recruiter.
Skip Holtz - nearby at ECU and was figured to be a candidate for every available job just 1 month ago
Todd Graham - Tulsa coach who is an offensive witch and has been climbing the coaching ranks quickly
Bobby Johnson - the Vandy coach could strike while the iron is hot
Jim Grobe - the Wake coach could strike while the iron is hot
Tommy Tuberville - strange times in Auburn for the last 10 days. why not bolt to a lighter league that is waiting to be dominated?
Mike Gundy - I doubt he leaves his alma mater, but if he swoons like the Cowboys are used to doing, maybe T Boone shows him the way. He has a tie to the Clemson AD.
Dick Rod - I doubt anyone is happy with Year 1 in Ann Arbor.
This list looks like everyone that sniffed the Arkansas job last year. Maybe that is because the Clemson AD Terry Don Phillips is a graduate of Arkansas.
