Coaching Carousel – Running Updates

Posted by Matt on December 11, 2007

Editor’s Note: I don’t feel like adding links for each one of these but most information has come from the Associated Press or ESPN. A BIG THANKS to Condo for help with the research and keeping the list accurate and up-to-date. Also, anything you read is considered only a possibility until an official announcement from the respective schools.

If you’re like me then your head is about to explode trying to keep up with the movement among the coaching ranks in the past few weeks. Have no fear, however, as I am here to (attempt to) get the story straight.

Arkansas Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt resigned/was fired (November 26) after 10 seasons with the Razorbacks with no replacement being named at the moment.

  • UPDATE: (December 11) After unexpectedly resigning from his job with the Atlanta Falcons, former Louisville Cardinals Head Coach Bobby Petrino is supposedly negotiating a deal with Arkansas.
  • UPDATE: (December 4) After rumors of Tommy Tuberville and/or Tommy Bowden dancing in Fayeteville, both have signed extensions to stay at their respective schools — (Aurburn/Clemson)…
  • UPDATE: The rumor mill is churning once again and places current Auburn head coach Tommy Tuberville in Arkansas sights…nothing confirmed yet but stay tuned as the game of musical chairs in the SEC may begin again…

MichiganLloyd Carr resigned (November 19) after 13 seasons as head coach of the Wolverines and it was believed that Les Miles, current head coach of the LSU Tigers, is the rumored front-runner for the job but it should also be noted that it is rumored that current Michigan defensive coordinator Ron English has already interviewed for the opening.

  • UPDATE: After supposedly talking to LSU Head Coach Les Miles again over the weekend (December 11), Lester has denied that he is going to Michigan and instead claims he is staying with LSU (after signing the extension, mind you).
  • UPDATE: Now being reported on is reports that LSU Head Coach Les Miles will be staying at LSU and will meet with the media at the Georgia Dome before the SEC Championship Game to announce this decision. The source also says that LSU associate athletic director Herb Vincent said Saturday morning that ESPN reports that Miles had accepted the head coaching position at Michigan were “inaccurate” and Miles agreed to a contract extension Saturday with LSU. God only knows what twists and turns are bound next for both the Michigan and LSU job situations, so stay tuned…
  • UPDATE: ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit is reporting that LSU Head Coach Les Miles will accept the job later on next week and is also reporting that he will be taking Georgia Tech Defensive Coordinator Jon Tenuta with him to become his defensive coordinator.
  • UPDATE: Michigan has formerly received permission to talk to LSU’ Les Miles regarding the position. Hopefully this doesn’t develop in to an extreme distraction for the Tigers but it is no doubt that, with all of the speculation, the month leading up to LSU’s Bowl game will be quite tough for Miles and Co.
