Sun Belt, the new cradle of coaches?

This article suggests that some SEC athletic directors may not look too far away in compiling a shopping list of replacements for head coaches on the hot seat.

Just my two cents here, but I think Willie Taggart is going to make some bigger program a helluva fine head coach.  And soon.

“If you win, you move, and if you lose, you move.”

Pretty amusing story in the Wall Street Journal  about what happens with head coaches’ houses when they change jobs (h/t Eleven Warriors).  The Zooker stars in my favorite tidbit:

Mr. Zook’s house also features Florida Gators memorabilia: a large, stuffed alligator head. He hasn’t been the coach at the University of Florida since he was fired in 2004, but the taxidermy trophy head sits in the office of the Champaign home.

You can take the coach out of Gator Land, but you can’t take Gator Land out of the coach.
