So since it’s highly likely Fritz is gone, what should TU be looking for in the next HC. Coordinator from a P5? Seasoned HC from another G5 or smaller school? Someone on the current staff (can’t think of anyone worthy). I think they need to pony up and pay a proven HC. That seems like the best formula for a place like TU.

Atkins is a no go. Norvell is the brains of that offense. if Atkins wants to show he can do it alone he can start at a CUSA school. We absolutely need someone who is a HC already. Sumrall should be the top candidate. He is damn good as a defensive coach. He also understands that the game is a passing game now and is smart enough to have a good OC and he knows to stay out of his way.

I could see anyone if these guys keeping us in the Bowl Hunt consistently. As I said before we brought in Fritz, we need a Head Coach who will keep us in Bowl Games no matter what. We can’t get P5 invitations by falling out of the Bowl loop.

1. Jon Sumrall
2. Art Briles
3. Rich Rodriguez
4. Al Gooden
5. Kevin Sumlin
6. Tom Herman
7. Jeff Choate
8. Will Muschamp
9. Clay Hendrix
10. Mike Neu

I agree that Sumrall should be the next coach for the Green Wave. Rich Rod would be more impressed by where we are now than he was before, so I think he should be offered again.

Sumrall gonna wait for better opportunity. Agree with above poster that Atkins should not be the choice. He is an OL coach extraordinaire but was relegated to OC to keep his recruiting ties at FSU. Not calling plays, Norvell does. The retreads don’t excite me. I don’t think the job will attract a very good pool of candidates. It will be an unknown small college guy like Willie who will want the raise in salary.

You think Sumrall would turn down $3 million or the school won't offer it to him?

I also think Mike Neu will try hard to get this job because his last 3 years at Ball St were just avg. not sure he’d get strong consideration because of that.

Sumrall is a hot commodity who will decide that Tulane is not a big enough step up. He can get a better job in a better league in the next year or two. He will look at the roster and recruiting challenges and refrain from looking here. Remember at Troy he has players who Tulane couldn’t recruit.
Tulane would have to offer $3 mil but don’t think he’ll take it.

There's nothing wrong with the roster other than typical senior graduation. We recruited a bunch of talented players the past few years waiting their turns. It's not going to be a NY6 team, but it can be very competitive.

USA Today is projecting Tulane vs Troy in the Birmingham Bowl since there is an insufficient number of SEC teams to fulfill the bowl requirements. It would certainly make for an interesting game if Tulane were able to hire Sumrall.

Total and complete BS on him being able to get players there he can't get here. Spears told the world he got in on a 19. The NCAA minimum is an 18. Only the same fools that believed the BS Nagle story believe the coach that claimed Tulane has raised standards. Spears exposed his lying ass.

Herman is one I was going to say should be on the list. Sumlin, Muschamp and Neu absolutely not.

More than any of those, my first choice is Gary Patterson. All he's ever done is win, big time. At TCU no less, who was in an inferior position to ours today when he took over.

Nagle is interim for the Bowl game. He took his whole staff with him Ga S to Tulane, after their Bowl. He didnt coach in the bowl but staff did before coming here.

Mcgee was HC interim for Bowl game and was recommended as HC.

Coach O will put his name in the hat!

Coach O & Mcklesky ( who is key for us to keep) would be quite the local recruiting crew.
