The Scoop - Saturday December 1, 2018

Saturday December 1, 2018


Colorado: Amid reports Mel Tucker will be next head coach, Colorado has released a statement saying hang on everybody...

Texas Southern (FCS): Wednesday we reported Clarence McKinney had been offered the head coaching position at Texas Southern. This morning it is being reported he plans to accept.

Stephen F. Austin (FCS - TX): Sources with direct knowledge tell FootballScoop Texas A&M head coach Colby Carthel will be new head coach at Stephen F. Austin.

Pac-12: Amid a devastating multi-part series documenting issues within the conference from Oregonian columnist John Canzano, a former Pac-12 AD is calling for an investigation into conference expenditures. This could (and likely should) cause significant change within the conference.

Colorado: Yesterday morning we wrote that Mel Tucker was now a strong candidate for the job. This morning there are several reports Tucker will indeed become new head coach at Colorado following today's SEC Championship game.

New Mexico: AD Eddie Nunez is bringing Bob Davie back for 2019. A look at the situation.

Maryland: Thamel's tweet also said what we have all written, that Mike Locksley is the top candidate for the Maryland job. Locksley, Matt Canada and Pep Hamilton are interviewing for the job and Locksley has long been the favored candidate. The real question here is will the dysfunction at Maryland somehow not get this done.

Ohio State: Yesterday we reported that in the days following today's Big Ten Championship game, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer plans to address his coaching future, adding that Urban is expected to announce he does not intend to coach past the 2019 season. Sources tell us Ohio State is taking steps to ensure Ryan Day doesn't go anywhere. Urban was asked about our report yesterday. His response, "No comment."

Kansas State: As Bill Snyder left the facility last night he waved to reporters saying, "everything is fine" before driving off.

Steve Addazio: Sources tell FootballScoop Steve Addazio will return as head coach at BC.

Bonuses: With the victory in last night's Pac 12 Championship, Chris Petersen picked up another $325,000 in bonuses tweets Steve Berkowitz.
