so 4 choices then lol.
I would like to have him, but he'd be nuts to turn down a HC job at SM to make what is at best, a lateral move to UK. Granted, if he has sucess at UK, he will really prove his worth as desrving a shot as a Head coach, but he really already has. Unless he's just hellbent on getting back to UK, or we just offer him more money than we probably want to, I don't see it happening.
UK will offer him around 600k or so. If he comes to UK he has no pressure on him for 3 yrs. as a head coach he has all the pressure on him to make the money they will have to pay him. Plus coaching in the SEC is coaching in the SEC. Win here and wow he would move from OC to head coach soemplace big for a ton of CASH
Southern miss - I seen on a Southern Miss board that they had sources telling them that Southern Miss was going after Head Coaches only or coaches with head coaching expierence and that they were still interviewing people.
LA Tech - I've seen some names mentioned and none of them were Brown but that's not saying that they aren't interested. I was just on a LA Tech board and 6 pages of coaching search rumors and Neal Brown was NOT mentioned.
Arkansas State - I haven't heard nothing about him going to Arkansas State. I hear Bobby Petrino has contacted them and is interested in the position. Seen on a Southern Miss board that it's about 85% chance that they pull the trigger on Bobby Petrino next week.
From a Texas Tech Recruiting Analyst, he said and this was from earlier, that it was down to Kentucky and Southern Miss but that LA Tech and Arksansas State wasn't out of the question, He also said that everything he's hearing points to Neal leaving. Tim Couch said tonight that he wouldn't be surprised to see Neal Brown as OC at Kentucky next year....Maybe he knows something we don't? We helped Barnhart bring Stoops to Kentucky and he's pushing awful hard to get Brown to come. Also I hear if Brown comes he maybe bringing 2 assistants instead of 1....
I also hear Phil Fulmer wants the Tennessee job back.....
Nothing personal, but I'm not sure I want a coach who would rather take the job with less pressure and less responsibility. Any coach who has aspirations to be a HC woudl not look at it that way at all.
When you are up and coming do you realy want to ruin your self before you get started. You go up the ladder one rail at a time.
He has every thing to win here with a ton less to looooose.
I applied for the UT job but my references disqualified me...turns out they won't hire anyone with INTEGRITY!
I applied but checked the no box on have you ever been convicted of a felony. They said no thanks, they did not think I could relate to the players
New rumor has it that Neal Brown will be here this weekend to be announced as OC. Supposedly there are some that can't keep it quiet, including me I guess. But its only a rumor for me. Something could change I guess, but that is the rumor as of early this a.m.
Heard from my buddy in the football program he will be announced Sunday fwiw. Go big Blue!
Let us "prey"!
I am way behind on these coaching prospects, so forgive me. What kind of players(3 star, 4 star, etc) would we be getting if this guy comes to UK? Also what kind of offense does he like to run?
Neal Brown is the current OC at Texas Tech. Played for Mumme and Leach at UK in the late 90's. What offense would you think he runs?
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
He runs the Air Raid offense. High powered offense at that
sweet! thanks for the info. Hope we get him!
