Cleveland Browns: The Browns have begun reaching out to candidates to join the club's front office, according to Mike Florio.

Before arriving at Wazzu in 2010, Moos was the AD at Oregon from 1995-2007. Moos knows how to hire a coach...and he also reads all of your emails (great insight into Bill Moos here).

Auburn: Auburn lost in ugly fashion to LSU on Saturday, and afterward former Tigers fullback Heath Evans nominated himself as his alma mater's new head coach.

Holy Cross (FCS - MA): Per source, Tom Gilmore will no longer be the head coach at Holy Cross. Gilmore led the program for over 14 seasons, and finished with a winning record in eight of those seasons, including a Patriot League title and trip to the playoffs in 2009. Overall Gilmore was 72-81. The Crusaders opened this year with a close loss to UConn before wins again Bucknell and #9 ranked New Hampshire. The team had lost their last four in a row, including a few close losses. Update>> The school has now announced that Gilmore has been relieved of his duties, effective immediately. Offensive coordinator Brian Rock will serve as interim head coach.

Nebraska: The Huskers are expected to name a full-time AD this week, according to Lee Barfkneckt of the Omaha World-Herald. Nebraska is widely expected to hire a sitting FBS AD. Barfknecht specifically mentions: Jeff Long (Arkansas), Rob Mullens (Oregon), Jamie Pollard (Iowa State) and Kirby Hocutt (Texas Tech) as potential hires.
