I get the gist of your post. You saying, 'why does this white coach keep getting chance after chance and these 2 black coaches don't'

I can't answer that, ask the ADs of the colleges that hire..

Kiffin should have got the Philly job rather than Chip Kelly.

Sumlin certainly has plenty to prove. He's never won a game that matters as head coach. He never won a conference crown at Houston with two years of Case Keenum, had one lousy year without him and hasn't won anything of note yet in College Station.

As for Shaw, he's a Stanford alum and his dad coached for them, too. I hope he doesn't get a chance to burn that bridge, but if he does, so be it.

It's not their fault that there are fools out there who got sweet-talked by Kiffen...

How so? Kiffin wasn't invited for an interview.

One wonders if Sumlin may have found his second Heisman winner!

We'll see, at the end of the season!

If everyone didn't already know,I think I saw Kiffen on the sidelines with Saban in the first 'bama game. Roll Tide!

Because there is more to being a college head coach than coaching. In many places the coordinators and position coaches to the x/o stuff. Head guy is often a figurehead.

You have to sell yourself to the AD and the boosters of your school.

Is Lane Kiffin making a case to succeed Nick Saban at Alabama someday? | AL.com

I'm thinking that everybody needs to see how the rest of the season plays out before Kiffin's crowned Saban's successor. Everybody's pointing to the doubling up of Florida as proof that Alabama's got a high-octane offense. What I saw was a miserable defense on the part of the Gators.

Looks like Maryland was thought of as a possibility!

I'll give Kiffin props. He's been pretty good as OC at Bama! But if he does end up at College Park, Will the Amari Cooper and Derrick Henry type of talent end up going there?
