There are rumors building that he could be the guy to fill the recently vacated Georgia State head coaching position.

The Panthers are 2-8 this season, but do have some serious upside going into the future. The school purchased Turner Field — former home of the MLB’s Atlanta Braves — and its plans for the renovation and use of the stadium are pretty awesome.

Georgia State fired coach Trent Miles on Saturday evening after the Panthers lost to Louisiana-Monroe, and ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg lists Lashlee as a potential candidate for the Atlanta job:

Some potential candidates for Georgia State: Maryland OC Walt Bell (extensive Sun Belt ties); Charleston Southern coach Jamey Chadwell; South Florida co-OC David Reaves; Auburn OC Rhett Lashlee; Jacksonville State coach John Grass; Arizona State OC Chip Lindsey. Wonder if Clemson OCs Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott would get a look.

Lashlee has actually spent some time in the Sun Belt having coached at Arkansas State in 2012 as Gus Malzahn’s offensive coordinator and quarterback coach in 2012.
