Some Head Coaching Tidbits

Here is some quick hits regarding a few coaching positions in college football:

  • Alabama may be described as "desperate" at this point, as a couple more coaches stated their disinterest in coaching the Crimson Tide.  According to the local FOX affiliate in Birmingham, former NFL head coaches Mike Sherman and Jim Haslett (both currently assistants) both turned down the thought of coaching at 'Bama next season.  The list of possible candidates at 'Bama continues to shrink, as several coaches have turned down the job.  The Birmingham News also has stated that the Tide have contacted Tommy Bowden as well.  He stated he was not interested in the job.
  • Staying in the state of Alabama, the UAB Blazers are in search of a head coach, and it doesn't look like it is going to be Jimbo Fisher.  The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Fisher did not meet with the Blazers today as expected, thus meaning that his chances at becoming the head coach at UAB have turned pretty slim.  Instead there have been reports that Fisher has met with Louisiana Tech officials to become the head coach there, keeping him in the state of Louisiana.  Fisher was one of the favorites to replace Jeff Bowden as FSU's OC.
That's about it for now.  Not too much going on outside the state of Alabama, I guess.
