Southern Miss job coming “down to the wire”; Kenny Payne unlikely

Southern Miss Fans of the Day

The Sun Herald caught us up to speed on the Southern Miss coaching search today, and though he’s still mentioned as a possible candidate, Kenny Payne’s name isn’t in the thick of things.

The newspaper reports Jay Ladner, a member of the 1987 Southern Miss NIT championship team, is a leading candidate. Ladner recently accepted the head coaching job at Southeastern Louisiana but a return to Hattiesburg may be too good to turn down. Stephen F. Austin’s Brad Underwood is considered the favorite, according to the report, with Jeff Goodman throwing Iowa State assistant Doc Sadler’s name in the mix.

Payne gets a mention at the bottom in the “other” category, but it’s looking like he’ll be back in Lexington for another season as Southern Miss focuses on other candidates.

    That’s surprising, given his local ties, interest in the job the last time it was open, and UK’s success since then. Makes it so we only turn over Antigua and Strickland though, so I’ll take it!

    Oh man, maybe Doc Sadler would hire his BFF Billy Gillispie as an assistant! He and Brett Favre could have a helluva time in Hattiesburg.

      nope. second to the left is the only acceptable one. all others receive a few points based on the “girls in a group” effect.

      But you can’t see behind her glasses that take up half her face. I think the ones I gave a “Yes” are acceptable but not necessarily DAMNNNN.

    As a UK and USM alum, I am really glad that Kenny is looking to stay here. I know the draw to be near home is compelling, but I know something even better will be around the corner for him. Maybe another championship ring and a head coaching job next year?
