2021-22 College Football Coaching Carousel

#256      
This year's carousel is magical. Every school that thinks they're a blue blood is going to overspend to acquire or lock-in their coaches, resulting in insurmountable buy-outs (like Frost got) when things go sour. I love it. Some of those fan bases are going to learn the pain of being locked into a coaching committment that is..."not optimal".

I can't decide what I'd like to see more for ND, Urbs or Orgeron. I know the latter won't happen (I think), but we're nowhere near the end of these chain reactions. May the hilarity continue.

It doesn't help that there are now 4 more P5 coaching positions and the same number of attractive coaching candidates. Combine that with schools like liberty and utsa locking in their P5 caliber coaches and it puts schools like VT in a tough spot. I'm very thankful we fired lovie when we did.

Saw some light rumors of a Pat Fizgerald - Notre Dame connection(his dad played there and he's fond of ND I guess). Doubt they'd hire a coach who just went 3-9 but there'a a track record. Hard to think he's more lucrative than Campbell or Fickell though.

Any time there have been rumors of Pat Fitzgerald getting hired somewhere else (GB, Bears), the rumors have come straight from Pat and his publicist.

Thought you were kidding when I read this. It lands at 8:14 this morning. Maybe Bielema going out to talk to some kids about their coach that only has a year left?
I know he made a stop in NJ, to visit Donovan Leary.

Word is ND AD wants someone with head coaching experience. That would tilt Fickel's way over Freeman.

Kelly wants Freeman to go to LSU with him...so far he's not budging
Kelly offered OC Rees $400k more to go to LSU....he wants to stay in South Bend
Kelly offered S&C coach the gig at LSU....he said he's staying w/ ND

Will be interesting to see how he fills out his staff.

I wonder if they really all love Notre Dame or just hate working for Kelly.
