Florida: Muschamp just announced Mickey Mariotti will stay on board as the head strength coach. He wants a play-caller with NFL and college experience. He does not know if he will call the defense, it depends on who he hires as the defensive coordinator. He wants to hire a special teams coordinator. Nobody has been offered a job, yet.
Texas: Our sources tell us that Mack Brown has interest in UCLA offensive coordinator Norm Chow.
West Virginia: We reported early Monday morning that Dana Holgorsen would have a new home by the end of the week. Out of respect for Bill Stewart and his staff at West Virginia, we left it at that. We had confirmed that Holgorsen had met with WVU athletic director Oliver Luck last week. In fact, Luck also interviewed a current mid-major head coach. Luck sadly made the decision to hire Holgorsen as the head coach in-waiting before informing head coach Bill Stewart. And the crazy world of the coaching profession continues. For the record, Bill Stewart is 28-11 in three seasons as the head coach at West Virginia.
