Right now, we know for certain that three SEC teams are shopping for new head football coaches. There’s a strong likelihood that Arkansas and Texas A&M will join their numbers and, if rumors are true about the Hogs pining for the return of Gus Malzahn, Auburn might, too. That would make a total of six (duh). How unusual would that be? Well, the last time there were that many SEC schools in the hunt, it was 1946.
It’s weird to think if that were to come to pass, Kirby Smart, going into his third season, would move into the middle of the pack seniority wise among conference coaches.
