Go where you wanna go, do what you wanna do.

I think it’s best to look at this story as the coaching equivalent of a baseball player going to AAA on a rehab assignment, especially when you remember where Arkansas State’s last two head coaches are now.

  1. Arkansas State has a nice little business model going on, hiring upwardly mobile coaches and collecting buyouts every year. It’s like an extra body bag game without having to go somewhere and lose.

    Just make sure his secretary is at least 70 years old.


  3. He can leave notes for his players in their lockers when he takes his next gig. Good practice to get back into the swing of things. I wonder if there will be a clause in his contract about whether or not he can own a Harley.

    Brainfart alert… Who coached there before Malzahn?

    The market seems to have worked in this instance.

    I don’t have a doubt that he’ll be back at major school at some point, but given how the UT and AU searches went and he still didn’t get hired, that kinda says something.

    Sure, the report came out that BP had some other skeletons lying around, but this round of job searches allowed that rumor to float and he’ll be good to go this time next year.

    Booby P is a rolling stone and Arkansas State is comfortable with that.

  9. With whatever coach you wanna do it with.
