An unlikely coaching gig has some reported high-profile candidates Tyler Smith/Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

Saturday night’s stunning college football slate ended with a bang when Georgia State canned head coach Trent Miles after a loss to Louisiana-Monroe earlier in the day.

While the job may not be seen as necessarily a high-profile gig, Georgia State is reportedly prepared to invest heavily in its future coaching staff in preparation of taking over the former Atlanta Braves stadium and transition it into their football stadium.

Here’s who they’re targeting, per USA Today.

“Athletics director Charlie Cobb is going to prioritize recruiting, culture-building and community relations, as the program badly needs a shot of energy and to build relationships with local high schools. Some of the early names that have been tossed around include Arizona State offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey, Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott and Stanford offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren.”

The common thread here, aside from offensive masterminds, is that all four are really solid recruiters.

Georgia State dropped to 2-8 on the season after a 37-23 loss to UL-Monroe. The Panthers were 9-38 in Miles’ four-year tenure, and six of those nine wins came last season.
