Chizik included in ISU coaching rumor mill...

Before you say anything, I highly doubt Gene Chizik would ever leave Texas for Iowa State......

With Dan McCarney's job in serious jeopardy, there's probably a 75%+ chance we have a new coach in Ames this next year. Our relatively new AD Jamie Pollard committed the University to a $135 million revitalization plan for the athletic facilities, so he needs to sell seats, and a big name coach would help people forget the disappointment from this year. Names mentioned include current San Diego coach Jim Harbaugh and Chizik. I don't see either in Cardinal and Gold, but if McCarney gets the axe, Chizik's name could be floated out there. For sure, he could probably coach damn near anywhere he wanted, and I'm not sure why he'd coach at Iowa State (I expect the next coach to be a surprise), but it's just a name being mentioned as a possible target. At ISU, we're used to shooting high and missing as it is.....
