Smith and Bronczek will likely work closely with Memphis athletic director RC Johnson in making the next hire. Brewer serves as the OC / wide receivers coach at Oklahoma State. Taylor coaches the wide receivers at Auburn. There will be numerous coaches trying to get involved with the job including Lambuth University head coach Hugh Freeze.
