    Now Pear Bryant needs to stick at ND for another season...
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Lane Kiffin? Best part of that is the likely return of Coach O to the S EC.

    Which is being rumored on ESPN. Apparently he has talked to Monte about joining him in Tennessee.

    With Monte and Coach O, Tennessee could rebuild in a hurry and be scary good.

    Just had this thought: does anyone else think it is less than classy for Tennessee to let this slip out the day before Phil Fulmer Day in Knoxville?

    If this is all the better they could do, they should have stuck with Fulmer. I hope I'm wrong

    Ouch!

    Lane Kiffin hired at Tennessee – We will have a lot more to say about Lane Kiffin when he is officially hired at Tennessee on Monday, but just the idea of Tennessee reaching so far down the coaching ranks to hire a guy that would probably not be on Utah State, San Diego State, New Mexico, Wyoming, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, and Syracuse’s list of legitimate candidates for a new head coach should tell you all that you need to know about Lane Kiffin getting hired at Tennessee. A few of us here at Coaches Hot Seat know a few Oakland Raiders’ players and we are thinking about telling a few stories about Kiffin’s tenure at Oakland, but doing so may make Tennessee’s new hire look so dumb that they might change their mind, so we are still considering those stories. Of course, the Raiders is a dysfunctional organization and Lane walked into a disaster in Oakland, but with his Dad being in the League so long we have to believe that Kiffin knew exactly what he was getting into and everyone tells us that it went south with Davis and the Raiders organization pretty quickly. Lane Kiffin has a very unique personality and although we have never had a problem with Kiffin, he strikes us as someone that as Barry Switzer says…



    “Is born on third base and thinks he hit a triple.”



    By any measure Lane Kiffin is not qualified to be the head football coach at the University of Tennessee, and by any measure he is only marginally qualified to be the head football coach at San Diego State. That should tell everyone, including everyone at Tennessee a lot…



    Since we do trade in the firing and hiring of college football coaches here at Coaches Hot Seat, we do think about coaches that would have the ability to move up in the coaching profession from their current head and assistant coaches’ positions and to that point we have a large board up on the wall here at Coaches Hot Seat Central where we list the head and assistant coaches that we believe are most ready and qualified to move up to “Major” and “Minor” head coaching jobs and we rank those coaches from 1 on down until we get to the last coach we believe is ready for the “Major” and “Minor” coaching jobs. We consider Tennessee a “Major” head coaching job, as is Clemson, Syracuse and Washington in our minds, and we believe there are approximately 40 to 45 “Major” head coaching jobs in I-A football today . To that point there is a large board on the wall here that has as its title…



    Head and Assistant Coaches Ready to Move Up to “Major” Head Coaching Jobs



    …and here are those coaches starting from the No. 1 spot in order from 1 to 100 that we believe are ready to move to “Major” Head Coaching Jobs



    1. Chris Peterson, Boise State

    2. Mike Leach, Texas Tech

    3. Gary Patterson, TCU

    4. Bronco Mendenhall, BYU

    5. Kyle Whittingham, Utah

    6. Norm Chow, UCLA OC

    7. Troy Calhoun, Air Force

    8. Greg Schiano, Rutgers

    9. Pat Hill, Fresno State

    10. Pat Fitzgerald, Northwestern

    11. Todd Graham, Tulsa

    12. Dave Christensen, Missouri OC

    13. Will Muschamp, Texas, DC

    14. Bud Foster, Virginia Tech, DC

    15. Brent Venables, Oklahoma DC

    16. Skip Holtz, East Carolina

    16. Brady Hoke, Ball State

    17. Butch Jones, Central Michigan

    18. Turner Gill, Buffalo

    19. Mike Locksley, Illinois OC

    20. David Bailiff, Rice



    21 – 74. Other Head and Assistant Coaches



    75. Mike Bobo, Georgia OC

    76. Tyrone Nix, Ole Miss DC

    Re: Brian Kelly, leading candidate for Tennessee job...

    I think Kiffin is being hired based on his credentials and connections only, not based on whether or not he has had any success as a head football coach in college.

    1.NFL Experience. Even if it was with the Raiders, he still has a way into recruits homes even with the Tennessee letterhead. It's what has made coaches like Rick Pitino, John Calipari, and Tim Floyd hot commodities in college basketball.

    2.Monte Kiffin may be joining him at Tennessee, as well as Ed Orgeron. With Dad controlling the offense, Lane could focus on the offense.

    Of course, Charlie Weis had no college head coaching experience and we all know how that is working out. At least Kiffin had the Raiders.

    Lane wasn't hired on any credentials. He was hired based on convenience and timing. He was the only coach who could come in right now, take over, and start recruiting. He'll likely be as successful as another SEC coach who had a famous Dad, Mike Shula.

    With this hire it's all about his asst coaches. The only way he can be successful is by being a delegator and delegating to talented folks around him. The only positive I can see to this is he may run a pro set offense.

    Perhaps they feel UC is a major head coaching job.
