Read on another board earlier this morning that Mike Gundy's name is being mentioned now...That would be a good hire if you could pry him away from his alma mater..I like it..No one said this would be easy..
He's rumored at Arkansas too...
I'd venture that unless we hire somebody who currently isn't in coaching, we won't hear anything until after thanksgiving at the earliest.
I agree Hop..
Brett Vennables name is being mentioned some too along with the Utah State head coach.
I could definitely go with Gundy. I just do not see how or even why he would leave Oklahoma State for UK...
What am I missing here?
I'd be more than fine with Gundy, Gary Patterson or Chris Peterson, but I don't see any of the three leaving their current digs for UK
You're not missing anything. There is no way in hell he leaves ok st for uk. T Boone will throw way more money at him than uk can muster!
Man it must be nice to have a billionaire alum that cares about all the athletic programs instead of just basketball. It would be nice. Just saying.

He's a man!!! He's 40!!! Couldn't pass it up.
Seriously, though, he would be a good hire I think. With his age, he could be here for a long time..........if he wins.
Maybe he is tired of playing 2nd fiddle to te Sooners? And until the Cowboys do something like win a NC, thats what he gets to play in OK.
The only problem with this is that T. Boone would write him a blank check. No shot at him.
You guys have to realize that none of the names you are hearing right now are coming from uk. One of them may end up being hired but Mitch gains nothing by having the names public. Coaches who want more money or a raise want their names attached to jobs. Gundy is one of those names. He knows that osu wants to keep him so he floats his name out there connected to jobs and t Boone asks him, "what's it gonna take to keep you".
Look what Petrino did. He got his dad and a former assistant's father in law to do interviews on his behalf. Why? To get people saying his name again.
Connecting It to jobs.
It's boomer sooner all over Oklahoma. Even in Stillwater. OU is the only "real" football program to the okies.
Not gonna happen.
Saw on another board that Gundy and T Boone dont get along too well..the person that posted it did not go into detail..Maybe he would like a change of scenery for whatever reason..I am always glad to hear the names like that mentioned..I would have to bet Mitch has put out feelers to guys like this..He knows he has to get this hire right..
Don, you really think T Boone is gonna let a coach like Gundy get away? Relationships like that are always a little strained. I've heard that he and the AD don't get along either. Not sure about he and Pickens but I doubt they let a guy like him get away especially not to a program like ours.
Don't be foolish enough to think that T. Boone doesn't have the ego that allows him to think he can't get somebody much better than Gundy.
Egos go both ways.
I don't doubt that T Boone thinks that but I still don't see it happening. Just because T Boone thinks he can get somebody better doesn't mean that Gundy wants to make the move. I'm saying even if Gundy wanted to make the move which he doesn't T Boone wouldn't let him get away.
Vennables sucks. Checkout his time at Oklahoma
