We’re still months away from the end of the college football season, but discussions among high-profile jobs, open (LSU) and currently filled (Texas) are already the hot topics.
According to USA Today columnist Dan Wolken, both jobs could cause a massive trickle down effect across the college football landscape.
If Charlie Strong doesn’t stick at Texas, the Longhorns are expected to pursue Houston’s Tom Herman, per the report. If Herman refuses to leave Houston, Texas could then chase big names such as Florida’s Jim McElwain, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, Washington’s Chris Petersen, North Carolina’s Larry Fedora and Cal’s Sonny Dykes.
As for LSU, the Tigers will reportedly be in the market for the name fans have heard all along — Jimbo Fisher — if Ed Orgeron doesn’t stick. They could also chase Fedora and Freeze, per the report.
Rumors continue to swirl that Herman’s “dream destination” is Texas. And while Fisher would likely be a solid coach for LSU, the coaching carousel could land Strong with the Tigers, per a separate report.
With the college football season dwindling, we’ll likely have a clearer picture in the coming weeks.
