.....and the rumor mill is already ramping up, including Major Applewhite (again). When Chizik first took the job, he was mentioned as a possible choice as an assistant. We now have an open spot for an OC/QB's coach, and he is one name that has come up for consideration.
Now, Wikipedia has his compensation at $250k, whereas our former OC Robert McFarland, was making $275k.....so there's a possibility of a raise.
I feel we'll strongly go after the Tulsa OC, but Applewhite will probably be under consideration.
Greg Robinson is also popping up on the DC radar, as is Auburn DC Paul Rhoads.
I doubt there's much of a chance we would get Applewhite (though, the Applewhite fan deep inside of me would get a kick out of it), I thought the same thing about Chizik. Now that Muschamp is the crown prince of UT football, maybe Applewhite will look for a position that will get him closer to a head coaching position. Who knows, but just something to be aware of.
