June Jones: June plans to "do one more turn-around somewhere and am going to coach five-to-seven more years" per Bruce Feldman.

SMU: UTSA athletic director Lynn Hickey made the following statement on Larry Coker's name being attached to interest at the SMU coaching vacancy; "Since I don’t know anything about it, I don’t know that I have a level of concern. I am confident that Larry’s made a commitment to finish the program here and to reach some certain goals. I also know that any human being is going to make decisions that are best for his family, and he has a right to do that." -- Larry is a very good coach but to be honest, hiring Coker doesn't seem like the path Rick Hart is headed down.
