App. State -- It's looking like Shawn Clark (interim HC and OL coach) will be promoted to full time HC.
Ole Miss -- Kevin Smith (FAU RBs) to join Kiffin's staff. Kiffin is trying to poach Alabama's S&C coach Scott Cochran. If Cochran joins the Ole Miss staff, he may join as a position coach, rather than as the S&C coach (you don't see that everyday). Other internet gossips are saying Kiffin has not offered Cochran any position. Rumors are circulating that Kiffin may be trying to poach other Bama staff members as well. Whenever Kiffin does something, people seem to get more excited about it than if some other coach had done the exact same thing.
Lamar -- they plan to hire an FBS assistant. Whether it's Beck, or someone else, remains to be seen. This will be a step down $ wise, but perhaps the chance to be a HC somewhere (anywhere) will entice an FBS assistant to the petrochemical swamplands of the Golden Triangle. At least the fishing is good.
Colorado State -- Steve Addazio (formerly of Boston College) looks like the winner. Urban Meyer consulted CSU on their pick.
Boston College -- Luke Fickell (Cincinnati) is getting a hard look. I'm not sure if that's much of a step up for Fickell, or whether it's a step up at all... The conference has a better rep, so there's that. The BC Eagles are also looking at Jeff Hafley (aOSU DC) and Al Washington (aOSU LBs). Since they're apparently sticking with the North for their coaching search, I suppose it makes sense to look to Ohio. Protests by Pennsylvanians aside, Ohio is the Texas of the North when it comes to high school and college football. (of course, we Texans haven't exactly lived up to our rep on the college part of that in recent years)
