In a bit of a surprise, Wisconsin appears to be honing in on Luke Fickell as their next head coach. While a great choice, Jim Leonhard always felt like a shoo-in.

Wisconsin has called a board of regents meeting this afternoon to discuss the head coaching hire. This should be announced within a few hours. You have to be pretty stoked if you’re a Badgers fan.

Tulsa has fired Philip Montgomery.

 

Texas State has fired Jake Spavital.

Current Tulane head coach Willie Fritz looks like the frontrunner to be hired at Georgia Tech.

Sounds like this is done. Fritz is still expected to coach Tulane in the AAC Championship game next week.

UNLV fired Marcus Arroyo. At 5-7 this season, the Rebels were near the front of the line to get a bowl invite thanks to their high APR score. Would imagine they'll decline now.

On Saturday Bruce Feldman reported Deion Sanders was offered the job at Colorado. No one else picked up on it, and he wasn't hired, so it seemed to be just an unsubstantiated rumor. Turns out, Coach Prime was offered the job, as he says so himself.

Auburn has hired Hugh Freeze. Can't imagine the rest of the SEC is thrilled to see him come back with all that baggage. But he's also got an established track record as a winner, and like the saying goes, "it just means more."

Tulane has released a statement that Willie Fritz will be back with Tulane next season.

 

For now.

And now it sounds like Georgia Tech will remove the interim label from Brent Key's title. Key went 4-4 this season after taking over for Geoff Collins, including two surprising wins over ranked teams (Pitt and UNC).

GT makes it official, Key sheds the interim label.

Dilfer's been coaching high school ball in Tenn.

 

That's....interesting.

IIRC a lot of people were impressed at his time in the ESPN studios, particularly his ability to look at analytics and break down film. Doesn’t surprise me he’s moving up the coaching ranks.

Pete Thamel says Liberty is targeting Coastal Carolina’s Jamey Chadwell as their next head coach. Chadwell won’t decide until after CC plays its Sun Belt Championship Game this weekend.

 

That would be at best a lateral move for Chadwell, who I figured would get interest for lower level Power 5 jobs. But Liberty does have very deep pockets (Hugh Freeze was set to make over $5m year before he left), so I imagine that’s the draw.

SI is reporting Deion Sanders will in fact accept the Colorado offer he has held for nearly a week now.
