campbell must be asking a lot if he's "asking for too much money", considering he's probably the best possible coaching candidate for any of these jobs out there.

This line of thinking is not new, yíall. In fact, itís very old school.

Two older gentleman were once sitting around a table in a small-town coffee shop, arguing over who should be the next high school football coach. One of them was arguing for a guy who was a little bit of a neíre-do-well, but he won. The other gentleman asked, ďWould you put your teenage daughter in a car with him to drive to Little Rock?Ē The guy replied, ďWell, hell no!Ē ďWell,Ē his friend said, ďI donít want that kind of man as my football coach.Ē

Old school.

Itís pretty much why Kiffin didnít get the Houston job when Herman went to Texas; HY couldnít get it by the decision-makers down there.

History may repeat itself.

I'd bet Chad Morris' buyout that a lot of Uber drivers are a lot worse than most football coaches. 

Yet, we still get in the car without vetting them.

why would we give Leach or Campbell 5+ to 6 when we can Hire Kiffin who has more long term upside For 3.75 million . save the additional 1.5 to 2.25 Mil. For top Assistants . Killin has several very Good ones already and Kendall Briles would add a great offense . get the Briles Offense without the stigma of Art . Although I wouldn't mind them hiring Art as a consultant

The most obvious, and relevant reason, is that Kiffin is wanting to see if someone else will offer more. In other words, the hold up is on HIS end, not our end.

Not saying that is the primary reason, but it is a possibility. We know that Kiffin's camp has talked to other schools.

Some of you must really want to relive the end of the BP era in three years. And thatís without the 10 win seasons in the middle.

Don't think we get Kiffin for $3.75M.  Too many other jobs out there now.

Then whoever is in charge of negotiations needs to be fired. Tell him he takes the job today or we move on elsewhere. It's pretty obvious he would take it..
I don't think this has anything to do with it.

campbell and leach want too much money
kiffin has been interviewed snd maybe Fuentes  and Butch Davis are  next

he wonders if it is Kiffin why the wait?


If it is Kiffin it wont be announced until after FAU's conference championship game. A coach will annouce before a bowl, but not a championship game. He would have to stay for that or the optics would be horrible and everyone would rip him for flaking out on FAU.

Lane fits all of what HY is looking for. Lower buy out and salary, connected to be able to hire a top notch staff and from what weíre being told by some he wants to be here. He can win the games weíre supposed to win and sneak up on the big boys from time to time. Itís time to stop this charade and hire him.

If they put that out there that leach wanted to much then that will help his supporters back the new hire.

I'd bet Chad Morris' buyout that a lot of Uber drivers are a lot worse than most football coaches. 

Yet, we still get in the car without vetting them.

I think the point is the notion that the Razorback football coach is the most revered man in the state. Gotta able to put him on a pedestal 30í tall.

In other words, we may be about to pay for the sins of Petrino and Bielema.

Can always count on Oklahawg to cut through the muddle.  I beleive this is exactly whats happening right now.  3.75M may be off the table, I'm thinking LK will manage somewhere in the 4.5M range.  JMO

We all want someone that isn't a total sleeze, but I don't think the average Arkansas fan/resident is expecting their coach to be akin to their pastor.

Sins can be forgiven.  A losing program cannot!

The thing is, the end of the Morris era is arguably a good deal worse. And, arguably, we got here by worrying too much about the end of the Petrino era.

I thought we paid for those sins by allowing Chad Morris to coach for two years.  If not, I better repent and start praying now.

Reality on this hire is we will need to be at $12 million total per year for head coach and assistant coaches salaries.  Approx. $6 million for head and $6 million for assistant pool will make you competitive in the high end of the market. 
That's a jump from our $8+ million total presently.

No, its not obvious. Maybe I didn't make that clear above: there are other, likely bigger, programs open or opening. Kiffin can bid one against the other. His agent is responsible for getting him the best contract possible. And, hello, he is coaching in a conference CG this weekend so he has stuff to mess with. We just took 4 hours of his time, supposedly, so all of this should have been on the table then.

Someone else said it earlier and I'll echo their statement.  It's about butts in the seats, you can't wait 3 or 4 years to hopefully get back to mediocre or respectability while the stadium is 1/2 empty for that period of time.  The hire has to generate huge amounts of excitement and hope, keyword is hope.  Hope for the future but also hope that it can get somewhat turned around in a couple of years.  There is absolutely no way Butch Davis has even been spoken to about the HC position other than maybe a hey, whatcha think about this guy.  The fact that MI even said his name should tell you he has no clue.  The part where we supposedly won't pay $5M+ for a top notch coach (Campbell) is also laughable at this point.  If you think otherwise, pull up a pic of the stadium during any game this season and ask yourself if you really think HY is going to hire a Butch Davis level name and guarantee that is what you see on tv or in person for the next X amount of years.  The players we have to get in recruiting to get this program moving upward and onward are not sitting on their couches hoping they get a call from Butch freaking Davis, but you can bet your a$$ they'd listen to a sales pitch from the conductor himself.
