What about Les Miles?  I read he wants to get back into coaching.  He is now an annalist on BTN.
don't know who is on Moos' short list
Les is goofy, but entertaining.  Would play big ten style offense and defense
would use the fullback since his son is a fullback at UNL
I could see it if Frost says NO
but, I've heard Frost has already said, Yes

I long for the days when a 9 win season (10 in this era) was good/great and finishing in the top 20/25 was good/great. Making a bowl game was special. Winning one was a bonus but not required.

Oh well.

It is what it is.

Scott Frost at Nebraska would make things in the West division more fun.

Another guy who will probably get a good look for P5 jobs is Lane Kiffin. Don't laugh.

it would be interesting to know the average number of coaches replaced in the 2010s compared to past decades, such as 2016 vs 2006 vs 1996 vs 1986 vs 1976 vs 1966 vs 1956

So, AD Jeff Long is out at Arkansas. If it wasn't already, Bret Bielema's ass is officially on fire now.

Good thinkin'
Of course you'd have to confine the data to current P5 teams, in order to skirt the ever-fluctuating number of FB programs.

Don't they have to pay him $15 million to go away?
The fact that that's the case is why Long is done.  But it might save Bret.

I was going off of what they were saying on SiriusXM last night, but that would make more sense.

I'm surprised they got rid of Jeff Long.  I thought he was rather well respected among the AD community, and while Bielema hasn't worked out, he wasn't a poor hire.  Petrino's motorcycle jaunt put them in a bad spot and they recovered nicely.  Now they have no AD and seem primed to can the coach at a time when Florida and Tennessee are also hiring.

he's a goner. I don't see anyway he survives. I just don't know who they'll get to replace him.

If they ever decide to make a live action Beavis and Butthead movie he'll have plenty of free time..
