DC Candidates

Recommended Posts

I have no idea if Tom Allen is going to Auburn or not. I hope he stays, but if he does go, I hope CWT and Harlan have already started putting their heads together for a short list. 

I do not see anyone on our current staff who should be promoted to this position. Here is a potential list from reading through articles and message boards of other teams already looking for DC's. I am not leaving off names "too big" for us, as with the new assistant bump we should be able to pay. A lot of these should some familiar names.

Dan McCarney- left on good terms to the best of my knowledge, was very good with the Dline here and at UF, UNT did not do so well.

Randy Edsall- Prior HC at UConn & Maryland, would be a great get, but may not want to take a step down to DC.

Paul Rhoads- Former ISU HC, DC success at Auburn previously.

Al Golden- Former UM HC, turned Temple around, DC experience at Virginia prior to that.

Jon Tenuta- Virginia DC, older candidate, lots of experience at GT, ND, NC State.

I don't have many under the radar names currently, but would certainly welcome hearing about some. Obviously our last hire was a P5 assistant and I would say that worked out successfully (for 1 year at least).

No more retreads! Rather take a swing on an up and comer who will be here for 2 years then get a guy who will mellow out our defense! 

Man if hes gone this DC hire is critical!!! Hopefully Auburn goes a different direction!

What up and comers do you know of though that haven't been taken already by a P5? I have a couple names from the Sun Belt, but have my doubts on coming from that conference. 

Plus we just took an up and comer and he only stayed here 1 year. 


Just like we pulled an LB coach out of Ole Miss (Tom Allen) We can look at position coaches out of these big programs or a guy thats hot on a smaller team. Theyre out there, lots of coaches havent left their teams yet because of bowl season.
