Last night on FootballScoop radio Scott & Derek had both AFCA President Tommy Tuberville and AFCA first vice president Todd Berry on to discuss the search for Grant Teaff’s replacement.

Tuberville and Berry both made it clear that the next leader of the organization will have head coaching experience and provided excellent insight into what they are looking for. While it sounds like best case scenario would be to have someone identified by this Summer; there is the possibility that a sitting FBS head coach might be the choice which might delay the official selection until following the 2015 season.

Todd Berry makes it pretty clear that the AFCA is looking to hire someone who will be on the job for a decade or more so “someone in their mid fifties” might be right for the job. Berry’s take on guys like Mack Brown, Jim Grobe, Philip Fulmer & RC Slocum is very interesting.

Tuberville strongly believes that head coaching experience is necessary.

Great content & insight from both guys. As the search progresses we’ll keep you posted on The Scoop.

Our President since 2008, Scott oversees daily operations. An outstanding high school athlete (he wrote that), he chose to go pro in something other than playing football (i.e. he couldn't break a 5.0 40 yard dash). Prior to purchasing FootballScoop, Scott served as a vice president of The Shaw Group, a Fortune 500 company, for eight years.
