    I'd be surprised if Butch Jones takes it, if it has indeed been offered. I think he'll eventually bail for greener pastures, but I think he can eventually get a better gig than UK.

    It's hitting twitter that he's headed to Colorado, based on west coast sources.

    I don't get it.

    I know the Big East is no more than C-USA 2012 at this point, but UC has been a good gig for while now and it seems inevitable that it will end up back in a true big conference in due time. Colorado nor Purdue seem like better jobs.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Most of the sources I have seen say this are not reliable. It was also reported on Twitter last week that Butch to UK was a done deal. Not saying out won't happen, but I wouldn't believe the rumors right now. From everything I've seen, Jones is going to give UC a shot before deciding. Who knows though. We'll see soon enough.

    Assuming this is true, I am fine with it. He is a very solid coach, and I wish him the best. I don't know if this is really a step up though. If he is willing to take a lateral job, or even a lesser one, then he was never really committed to the UC job anyway. Leaving for ND is one thing, but leaving for Colorado is another.

    I don't know how realistic it is but, the reason I suggested Kerry is because he is a Cincinnati guy. I believe he would be willing to stick around and build the program.

    I know I am an outsider to UC football, but the biggest reason for Jones to leave has to be the $13.5 Million for 5 years. He can pay his assistants as well. UC is in for a serious step down moving forward if they can't escape the BigEast. The only thing that has changed around UC football since Brian Kelly started making noise about making the program more competitive is the stupid practice bubble. Other teams have actual buildings. UC is in deep trouble if they can't escape the BigEast.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    That may be true but he never been a HC at the college level let alone a coordinator. That could turn out to be a very risky move. Not to mention he didnt go to UC and he left UC to go to OSU so just b/c hes a Cincy guy doesnt mean he will automatically stay forever.

    Next coach in.

    Butch has done a nice job here and I'd prefer to see him stick around but at the end of the day I don't view him as irreplaceable. The never ending coaching carousel can be a bit tiresome but UC's athletic department has shown itself to be pretty good when it comes to hiring new football coaches and I trust they'll find somebody else to built on what Dantonio, Kelly and Jones have started here.

    I was upset when BK left, partly because of how he handled leaving and partly because I think I realized UC would never find anyone as good to replace him, but at least leaving for Notre Dame made sense. I can't say that I feel the same way about Butch or the Colorado job but if they're offering the kind of money that has been indicated I can understand why he would be tempted. Ultimately I think it's a bad job, but between his salary and the inevitable buyout it may end up being a lucrative decision.

    So if Jones leaves, who is next for UC?

    FWIW, the reports coming from more reliable sources out West say that he left Colorado without accepting an offer. That doesn't mean it won't happen, but any reports that it is a done deal are likely not accurate.

    It should be noted that the visit took longer than it was scheduled for. His agent says a decision is expected to be made Tuesday. Jones is scheduled to be at a press conference for the Belk bowl tomorrow at 1. You'd think we would know by then. My guess is UC will get one last chance to make an final pitch before the decision is made. We will see.
