A lot of those make a lot of sense.

I know Colorado may want to hire a black coach to try to smooth everything out but it is a mess. Not sure Charlie Strong would want to leave Louisville for that.

Butch Davis is not likely for the Hogs unless something happens and Jeff Long is pushed into it.

Most fans here are thinking we have a deal with a coach that has turned down several schools that are as good or better than us. But that's not why I came in we have heard that USM might hire Bobby Petrino. I have always had warm feelings for the school because I spent a lot of time in the summers on your campus as a Army CGSC instructor, three weeks a year for I think 8 years. That was many years ago because I am older than dirt.

Just wanted to see if by chance that Petrino rumor had any legs?

Good luck on who ever you hire I have always pulled for Southern Miss and attended several of the games in Memphis.

There are lots of rumors about Petrino. I think he is definitely the best coach available in terms of Xs and Os that will produce the most Ws. However, I would be surprised if he is hired.
