Greetings from the Sooner Nation - I hear you are looking for a coach?

Hello Longhorn fans. I understand the deep frustration you are experiencing with the current state of Longhorn football. I'm a longtime Sooner fan, yes, and I remember it wasn't so long ago that OU fans were weeping and gnashing our tooth teeth as well. I feel your pain.

First off, I was born in west Texas. So I'm a native Texan. Hence, you should know my motives are pure. Plus it's in the best interests of the Big 12 that Texas be a power in football. Our bitter rivalry extends no further than the playing field, I assure you, so my suggestions are definitely in the best interests of Longhorn football. That being said, let's discuss my suggestions.

Option 1 - retain Mack Brown. This would be ideal. Mack is the perfect man for the job and has a long record of success with the Longhorns. Granted his teams have struggled a bit the last few years, but that is due to interference in the program from Dodds. With Dodds leaving after this season, Mack will restore Texas to it's rightful spot just under OU in the Big 12 pecking order. I suggest that the new Texas AD sign Mack to a 10 year contract extension.

Option 2 - Lane Kiffin. Lane is one of the brightest young minds of the NCAA coaching world. Just yesterday he led his team to a big 35-7 win over Boston College. He also led his team to the Sun Bowl last year, and even has experience at the highest echelons of football....the NFL.

Option 3 - John Blake. Blake is an excellent recruiter. He seems to have a real talent for attracting talent. Hiring Blake would be a surefire fix to the Longhorns issues.

Option 4 - Charlie Weis. Texas can get a schematic advantage over all their opponents by hiring this dynamic and man crowd pleasing head coach.

Option 5 - Bo Pelini . Bo knows football. Bo like football too.

Option 6 - Kirk Ferentz. Kirk has a long resume of success with the Hawkeyes, I highly recommend him.

Those are my humble suggestions. I hope the Longhorn administration seriously considers each of these outstanding candidates. They are truly the right men to lead Texas to where it richly deserves to be on the field.
