10 Names You Might Hear On The Radio Show Tomorrow

This will be KSR’s first UK coaching search and we can already tell it’s going to be a wild ride from what we’ve heard in the past few weeks.  Rumors are flying like inbound private airplanes and a lot of them are so absurd you can’t help but laugh at how they even came about. So, as we get ready to take calls from people like a close friend of a co-worker of Tom Coughlin’s nephew, here are some of the names you can expect to hear and how the radio call will go.

 

1. NICK SABAN

“Any truth to the Nick Saban rumors?  He’s gotta be bored down there in Alabama and ready for a new challenge.  Plus, with his ego, I think he’d consider coming to Kentucky to try to turn the program from a bottom-feeder to national champion. It’d show everybody that he’s the best college coach ever. He’d do it if Mitch would make him the highest paid coach in the country.”

2. BOBBY PETRINO

“He’s changed, Matt. He hit rock bottom and he’s desperately trying to repair his image with the public. He’s won everywhere he’s gone so Kentucky would be crazy not to hire him. He would say yes in heartbeat. HIRE PETRINO!”

3. JIM TRESSEL

“Hey, Matt. First-time caller here. What about Jim Tressel? Kentucky won’t make a bowl next year with that tough schedule so Tressel’s one-year bowl ban won’t even matter. Bring the vest to UK!”

4. JON GRUDEN

“I’m not hearing anyone mentioning Jon Gruden. Everybody knows he’s tired of working in TV and he wants to get back into coaching. A lot of people think he’ll go to Tennessee but he might consider the Cats if we can beat the Vols for a second straight year.”

5. WILLIE TAGGART

“Taggert’s already shown he can beat an SEC in Commonwealth Stadium! He has just as many wins in Lexington as Joker does in 2012!”

6. JOHN MADDEN

“John Madden was at Bluegrass Airport over the weekend. My friend told me. Never mind the fact he hates flying. My friend wouldn’t make it up.”

7. REX RYAN

“Rex’s dad, Buddy Ryan, lives in Shelbyville so don’t you think Rex would consider Kentucky if the Jets fire him this season?”

8. VINCE LOMBARDI

“Dig him up!”

9. SEAN PAYTON

“Matt, I saw yesterday where Sean Payton’s contract with the Saints was voided by the NFL. He almost came to Kentucky last time we needed a coach so we know he’s interested in the job. Mitch should pull out the checkbook and make it happen!”

10. JOHN CALIPARI

“If Coach Cal had good coordinators to handle the Xs and Os, I think he could coach both teams. We’d get the best talent in the country because every kid wants to play for Coach Cal.”

    Gruden will be Head Coach of the Browns next year.
    Willie Taggart is not SEC materail.
    Tressel is, was and will always be Big 10. Enough said.
    Bobby Petrino is scum. Can you say “Ricky Three Stacks”
    Rex Ryan will have a better chance of being a Jockey at Keeneland next fall.
    Nick Saban does not even talk to his own players unless they make him money.
    So the clear choice is………CHRIS PETERON from Boise State.

    Kirby Smart. For UK to compete UK needs someone from the SEC. Someone that comes from a national championship program. There is no way that we could get a head coach from a national champion caliber program. Smart would bring a winning tradition from Bama and Georgia. These are something that UK lacks in football (winning and tradition). If we do get a great head coach I hope UK doesn’t give Cal a cadillac and the football coach a zippo… UK has the fan base and can do the recruiting if they have a good staff in place. Just bite your lip Mitch and write that check. You have to spend money to make money. UK football is the biggest income for the university as far as athletics. Just imagine how much you could get if you had a winning program with the fans of UK. Go CATS!

    We definitely need a high profile coach or offensive coach from a high profile BCS school. Definitely someone from the SEC who knows the SEC and knows how to win in the SEC should be top of the list. We don’t need another average coach that will only get the same results as a bottom feeder of the SEC.

    To say that Bobby P isn’t an option is scary! The only reason he isn’t an option is because UK won’t hire him. If you all know that to be true then our AD should be fired.

    If you don’t think he would come to UK. Well then this site is less informed than I thought.

    Anyone who thinks Bobby Petrino just needs “a chance” is smoking something really good and illegal.
    Look at every single enterprise that has hired him since he started coaching. He has walked away from
    each and everyone one of them in the most unprofessional and low-down slimy way possible.
    Even before the motorcyle accident + adultery scandal, I wouldn’t give that man the time of day.
    “Win at all cost, nevermind the ethics” is NOT what UK is about, and if you truly think that’s
    a mindset worth living by, I can bet there’s a cardinal with big teeth, printed all over your boxers.

    32, there’s no denying he’s had success, but does UK need the stigma that comes with him? Yeah Cal had a reputation but the man had zero violations, Petrino is scum and the last thing we need is being compared to Ricky P. Besides, he bolted on the Falcons during the middle of the season…can you really trust him? Smart, Pease, or Koetter are probably the top choices.

    Kirby Smart (Alabama) or Kliff Kingsbury (Texas A&M, will be national title contenders soon). Both young guys and are proving themselves right now. Only downfall to Kingsbury is that he doesn’t have a ton of experience, but I think he will be the next big thing.

    50. You’re missing the point. The notion that Chip Kelly would leave Oregon (home of Nike AND its money) where he’s about to go to his 2nd NC game in 3 years to come to UK where it’ll be virtually impossible to EVER make a national championship game, is laughable. The situation he’s got going there, including the easy conference, is something every coach dreams of.

    I love the crazy coaching search fun, but this is football we’re talking about, not basketball, where no coach is off-limits. Time to temper expectations. We should aim for someone slightly better than Sonny Dykes, then be thrilled if we get him.

    And for those of you who so offended by the idea of Willie Taggart coming, you needn’t worry. He won’t accept this job, and he’ll be coaching somewhere better within the next two years. The Harbaugh coaching tree is not to be messed with.

    There are plenty of delusional people on here. UK is not getting a big name HC from another program like Kelly or Saban, and UK is not getting a big name former NFL coach either. The best hope is for an assistant from a big time SEC team.

    Just say no to the following: Philip Fulmer, David Cutliffe, Tommy Tuberville, Houston Nutt, Jim Tressel, Ron Zook, Brent Pease, Willie Taggart, Gene Chizik (who will be fired), Wade Phillips and Norv Turner.

    Also, notice why David Cutcliffe had a lot of success as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator and as Ole Miss’s head football coach? For most of those years, he had a Manning run the offense just like Gus Malzahn had Cam Newton.

    As far as Brent Pease is concerned, Florida has the most fertile ground of football players and prospects in their own back yard yet Florida’s offense is among the bottom half of the SEC, far removed from the Spurrier Era and Urban Meyer Era high powered offenses of years past.

    As far as my wish list of real possibilities is concerned:

    1) Kirby Smart
    2) Mike Leach
    3) Sonny Dykes
    4) Bobby Petrino
    5) Rex Ryan

    My dream list

    1) Nick Saban
    2) Bill Cowher
    3) Jon Gruden
    4) Sean Payton
    5) Chip Kelly

    However, UK will hire one of the following because they are notorious for hiring coaches with lots of head coaching experiences in several places and have been notoriously bad hires:

    Houston Nutt
    Ron Zook
    David Cutcliffe
    Gene Chizik
    Phillip Fulmer

    That’s interesting 52, so he’ll never leave Oregon? UK is at the lowest of lows, but there is so much great football in this region it’s like UK football wants to get overlooked… Wasn’t it 5 or so years ago that Brooks had this team looking pretty dang good? An SEC school alone you’d think would get a coach to wanna look..

    @ 26. Frank Solich has a fat contract for a long time at OU and he seems way more interested in building that program than going elsewhere. If he were going to leave he would have a while ago–it’s not like people simply forgot he went to the Rose Bowl and had consistent success at a big time school like Nebraska.

    I mentioned in another thread some guys we should look at:

    * Tim Deruyter — Fresno State, 8-3 HC record, former TA&M and Ohio DC. Improvement at every school he’s coached at.
    * Dave Doeren — Northern Illinois, 20-4 HC record and former Wisconsin DC
    * Butch Jones — Cinci, 47-26 HC record. Don’t know that he’d want to leave given he’s comfortable at a BCS school, but we are in the SEC and maybe would pay more.
    * Oddball one, but George O’Leary — UCF, 109-86 overall record, once hired at ND but had that resume scandal. At UCF he did have that kid die on his watch, though.

    but these guys really don’t have much in the way of SEC or UK connections so I’m not sure they’ll be looked at. I really like Deruyter and Doeren and I believe both of them will likely be head coaches at BCS schools very soon. Why not us?

    #49…Glad you noticed my suggestion of Kliff Kingsbury yesterday. He is the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M and played qb at Texas Tech under Mike Leach. He was voted oc of the year in 2010 at the University of Houston when current A&M coach Sumlin was there. Sumlin brought him to College Station last winter when he took the head job there. I too believe he is an up-and-comer and will be sought after as a head coach.

Dr. Tom handed him the keys to one of the top the programs in the country and he tanked them to the point 4 coaches later still can’t be fixed. He was run out of Nebraska .

    Ok in all seriousness. Has anyone thought about Brian Kelly. He left Cincinnati to go to Notre Dame because he deserved a “big name job”. I understand he is doing very well and has built a great team this year but would he turn down the oppurtunity to come to the SEC. Just a thought.

    No. You said it yourself. He left Cincinnati. To go to Notre Dame. The most famous and storied program in the history of college football. Which happens to be undefeated right now, boasts a legit Heisman contender, and has a very real shot at playing for a NC this year.

    So, now elements of our fan base think UK *football* can raid the following programs for their head coaches (because we’re obvi too good for their coordinators): Oregon, Boise State, Notre Dame and, just for good measure, the New Orleans Saints. #SMH

    59. Sorry, but a Fiesta Bowl and Rose Bowl, no losing seasons and a 9-3 record his final year suggest otherwise. Nebraska fans I know didn’t have a huge problem with Solich other than the bad offense towards the end of his tenure there.

    Regardless, he wouldn’t come to UK anyways. Ohio has put more money into their football program (relatively speaking) and seems committed to building a program with Solich at the helm. Plus, I’m not sure why anyone would want to leave Athens.

  71. REALITY CHECK
    7:42 am November 5, 2012 Permalink

    “The problem for Kentucky is there will potentially be four coaching vacancies in the SEC alone: Arkansas, Auburn, and Tennessee may well have vacancies in addition to Kentucky,” Charles D. Smith of HarlanDaily.com wrote. “In a school-yard pick-um, Kentucky would probably get stuck with the fourth pick. Why? : Because no coach has left UK with a winning record since Blanton Collier in 1961. An upgrade in facilities is necessary to recruit against the Cats’ competition and fans will have to be convinced to come back to Commonwealth Stadium.”

    T.J. Walker of CatsIllustrated.com suggested Kentucky needs to follow the lead of its in-state rival Louisville. When it became stagnant in Louisville under the direction of Steve Kragthorpe, Cardinals’ brass were decisive in replacing him. Kentucky should follow suit.

    If Kentucky were to follow Louisville’s path, it would then hire a well respected SEC coordinator. Georgia’s Todd Grantham, Alabama’s Kirby Smart, Texas A&M’s Kliff Kingsbury or even Florida’s Dan Quinn are all legitimate options Kentucky should consider.

    Another potential target is Louisiana Tech’s Sonny Dykes. The Bulldogs are currently ranked higher than they have ever been in the school’s history, and Dykes guided them to said point. Dykes also has a history with Kentucky. He was an[..]istant under Hal Mumme in 1999.

    Kentucky could only hope former Petrino is desperate enough to take the job. Otherwise, the team certainly won’t be discussing high end coaching candidates when the time comes.

    I realize Saban would never come here, but what a “I carry my balls in a wheelbarrow” statement would it be to win another national title, and then say, “I’m so f’ing good, I’m gonna go do it at Kentucky!” Wasn’t it Bear Bryant who said “I’ll take mine and beat your’n, or I’ll take your’n and beat mine”?

    A lot of people make fun of some of these suggestions (yes, some of them are ludicrous, but the coaches who don’t have a gig aren’t automatically no’s), but you’ll recall that UK basketball had one of the greatest traditions in college basketball history, yet many people called us crazy to think any decent coach would listen given the pressure and fact we’d run off a title winner and a drunk.

    Tressel, Petrino (alleged not gonna happen while Mitch here or not), and even Sean Super Bowl Payton…it can’t hurt to reach out to them, especially through unofficial channels. All 3 are sitting on their couches, and while Sean Payton may have the Dallas job calling, and Petrino will probably get better SEC calls, you just don’t know what’s actually in their heads, what kind of legacy they want.

    We’re a crap job, but how many people out there are actually willing to take a bottom feeder in hopes of making it great and becoming a legend? You win big at UK and you could actually go down in history for it.

    Chip Kelley will never leave OR except for a NFL job…I don’t blame him, to much NIKE money floating around there to walk away and as a coach that has to be a fun team to coach. Remember, everyone outside of the SEC has a lot of respect for OR’s offense.

    Though it’ll never happen think about this combo at UK…
    Coach Cal & Coach Saban…Holy poopies, UK would own college sports & the media with that pair roaming around Lexington. But again, Saban would be an idiot to leave the Empire he’s building at ‘Bama.
