Reportedly our coaching search has narrowed to four candidates: Jimbo Fisher, Art Briles, James Franklin, and Charlie Strong. The hiring deadline has also been set as January 15th, so it's reasonable to think a decision could be announced by the end of next week. Assuming these are the actual finalist, it's a quality list.
I'll be happy with any of these guys as the next HC. Fisher or Briles are the favorites for me. I like an offensive minded HC and both have more experience than Franklin. Briles wins by a nose for me because of his already established Texas network.
Vote for your pick, I'll get the results on Patterson's desk.
