In one of the most puzzling moves of the coaching carousel Tommy Tuberville was announced today as the new head coach of the Cincinnati Bearcats. Why Tuberville would want to leave the Big 12 and the south to coach at one of the hardest jobs in college football is a head scratcher. I mean Lubbock is bad but is it bad enough to jump to a team that will be trapped in a dying conference? How much is that contract worth?
Normally I could care less about the Cincinnati coaching search but this one could impact Kentucky. Its no secret that Neal Brown, OC at Texas Tech, is up for the same job in Lexington. How will the move influence his decision? I can’t imagine Brown would pass on head coaching jobs or a spot in the SEC to remain with his current head coach at Cincy. Or will Brown be considered for the now vacant head coaching job at Tech? However, the entire process just ads another chapter to as the Coordinator turns. Hopefully we will know who will be running the offense sooner rather than later.
