    No question. It's got decent natural scenery, what with trees and water and all. It's got a brand new stadium that's barely been used for D-1 football. Plus, you're choosing between a program that ran off a coach for a stupid reason or a program that basically tried to keep their coach for ANY reason. Pretty easy call, IMO.

    He should be. The guy can coach offense, and the NFL clearly has decided it's going to have to go all-in on the spread pretty soon, so he's going to have his shot with any number of pro teams if he wants it. If I were him, I'd take a high profile OC job for a head coach that will mentor him and take his time this time around.

    So word is Dana Holgorsen did want the job but Kirby Hocutt refused to give him an interview. All of it seems a little surprising but this is what they are saying. Tech AD cutting his own path

    USC people saying they have hired Kingsbury to be their OC.

    Some indication of confirmation

    Burkhardt implied the deal is agreed upon, but nothing is signed while the NFL is calling.

    It's an interesting choice for him. I would like to know his thought process. The NFL came begging as that Rams-KC game got the whole league thinking about Big 12/spread offenses.

    Rumor is that Aaron Rodgers is pushing hard for Green Bay to hire him, but HC is pushing back. If GB hired KK as HC (not a chance), that would open the door for Linc to leave Norman

    That might be true. I was surprised he went with USC so quickly, given the current terrain. But, maybe he didnt?

    Get fired by Tech will be the best thing to ever happen to KK since he stopped having to take snaps against Texas.

    been listening to sports talk radio from Lubbick for last 30-45 min---lot of irate tceh fans in regards to hiring of Matt Wells (apparently a done deal) and not even trying to talk with Holgorsen---they(fans) seem to think that the hire is based upon money (and lack of spending it)--only time will tell if it's a decent hire

    The only coup for Tech would be if Wells convinced his old friend Aranda to leave LSU and be his DC.

    Aranda, however, would have to be careful and not drive through Rusk after leaving Baton Rouge for Lubbock

    If someone intentionally cheated you out of millions, would you ever trust them again?

    If they gave me $15M more than what they originally cheated me out of...then probably.

    Matt Wells it is

    Pretty impressive to beat out Nick Saban for the Tech HC job

    He turned Utah State into a winner. That's pretty impressive.

    Wells is an Okie looking to go "home" when Gundy retires.
