Have we been turned down by four coaches????
« on: December 02, 2019, 05:20:33 pm »

Today on the noon show the guys on WJOX in Birmingham said Arkansas had been told “no” by Gus, Campbell, Fuente, and an unnamed former SEC coach and was now “down to Lane Kiffin.”  I don’t know how they would know this and I doubt seriously the job has been offered to anyone other than Kiffin.  They also said the Ole Miss and Missouri jobs were better than Arkansas. It’s tough living in Alabama when it comes to football.

Kiffin was the first guy we talked to and is first on HY list. He just did his due diligence reaching out to other coaches like any good AD would do.

Edit: Also, we NEVER talked to Gus.

This.
HY was after Kiffin from day 1, but was doing his job professionally.  When Kiffin signs, he will have signed 1a.

I live in Birmingham. JOX has been bad talking Arkansas all year, and consistently thought our #1 guy was Gus this search. They are out of the loop. Justin Fuente would’ve crawled from Virginia for the job. Literally, he would’ve crawled.

Never talked to Gus he has been long gone his minions scattered to the winds. Campbell said no only one that was asked besides Kiffin to appease some money people. Fuente isn't above Kiffin.

We were turned down by 3 to my knowledge. Norvell, Campbell, and Stoops , whose denial was not to a formal offer.

We've been told "no" by one coach.  Matt Campbell, yesterday morning.

Kiffin is our second option.  The ball is in his court.  Many people believe it is a done deal.

Fuente is number three.  He has not turned us down yet, and in fact has only had cursory contact in case we decide to pursue him.

These things I am 100% sure of. 

Bill Clark is rumored to be #4.  That I am not sure of at all.

Oh, and we haven't even attempted to talk to Gus.

Yep. This is correct. Caveat, maybe Norvell told us not to bother thru somebody. In fact he told us two years ago to not ever even try again, so, maybe we didnt even try. I dont think we offered rhule or stoops or leach.

I don't know about the rest, but Campbell was thought to be a done deal. He was thought to be the one and that the offer was expected to be accepted. Not looking good now. Most likely a no.

Mike Irwin tweeted:  Campbell & Leach want in the $5-6 million range. I'm told they are out. Kiffin has been interviewed but another interview is pending. Maybe with Fuente or Davis. If Kiffin was a done deal I can't figure the hold up. If a coach they want has said yes he needs to be here now.

Mike Nail just said on KNWA that Matt Campbell wanted 6 mil to come here and the board wouldn't pay that ....

If true, they are not committed to building a winning program; only an economic one.

If we aren’t willing to pay 5-6 million for a coach then we will never again knock on the door of even mediocrity, much less Petrino level like Campbell could get us to

I think its always important to remember that we may reach out to a LOT of coaches to see if they have any interest and they could say they don't have interest but that isn't exactly the same thing as being told "no".  The way that's phrased its like we "offered" all of them and that would be patently false.  We may have put out feelers to each of them and just were told they weren't interested or were told what they would require in order to entertain talks but I seriously doubt we made any offers other than to Kiffin or, if we did, perhaps to Campbell.

Considering the cost of living and everything else, Fayetteville, the golf courses, outdoor life, and how it is ranked for living, it is pretty high up there and a great place to live. 

Also, we know what a great coach can do here.  10-3, 11-2 his last two years here.

5-6 mil might be a bargain if we keep paying mediocre salaries and firing coaches every 2-4 years and paying  huge buyouts!! Just saying pay it Up front and be done with it!

Sounds like my Auburn alum friends that were surprised when I told them there are plenty of Arkansas fans that aren't interested in the return of Gus.  They just figured everyone in Arkansas would love to have their hand-me-downs.

Here's the thing with being an AD.  Sometimes you have to talk to people and check their interest just to keep the boosters and the board happy.  Also it doesn't hurt to talk to a couple other people in case your top choice decides he doesn't want to come.

Kiffin for 5 years at $3.75 million per plus a bunch for assistants pool. The hold up is HY dragging his feet so Kiffin can coach this Saturday in his Conference championship game.

This is one reason Kiffin was my first choice if true.  He was rumored to take less money so he could pay for better assistant coaches.  He knows how important the position coaches are to winning, and winning leads to him getting more money.

Ultimately the Best case scenario.

Would show that HY has Kiffin's back and the deal is done.

Campbell's "no" is not just about UA, it is about his other options. He may be waiting to see if Michigan State or Penn State open. Or, an NFL gig. He is this year's Urban Meyer at Utah guy, just waiting to land in the perfect situation.

Name not being mentioned that maybe should be mentioned: Rhule.

Six million for the grand slam hire (Meyer, Stoops,) would be different. But imo Campbell nor Leach is worth 6 million per year.  Kiffin all day long for me.

Makes sense that if Kiffin is the man no word will leak out untill after his last game Saturday, and furthermore if no news is out before midweek then all bets should be on Kiffin.

Kind of my thoughts as well. Especially on Leach. I would give Campbell 5m tops. He’s probably earned that.

But I guess what concerns me is, did we not offer the 6m because we thought it was too much, or did we think it was too much for them? Big difference.

I’d rather have Kiffin anyways. We could use a dose of his arrogance in that lockeroom. Our players need a boost of confidence in the worst way.
