Anybody have any ideas for head coaches that are more realistic (lets assume Schiano and Kifflin are not):

I'd like (in order):

Mark Whipple This is the guy who should have gotten the job after Randy Edsall Left. Currently Cleveland Browns QB coach, (121-59 as college HC, D-IAA championship with UMass, northeastern guy, played QB at Brown, coached at Union College, Brown, New Hampshire, UMass, Miami FL, and the NFL.

Craig Bohl from North Dakota State (94-32, won two straight FCS championships)

Bobby Petrino
currently at Western Kentucky (79-28) Gotta figure UConn is a step up from there. Though we would probably just be a stepping stone to a major conference gig, he could probably right the ship for a few years.

Frank Solich from Ohio University (121-64 at Nebraska and Ohio)

Tim DeRuyter from Fresno State ( 15-1 includes an interim HC bowl win with TA&M)


... And PLEASE re design those awful helmets!

Bob Diaco from Notre Dame if he wants it.

What about Tim Brewster the former HC from UMinn? What is he doing nowadays? He is also a northeast guy.

Actually if Chip Kelly does not pan out at the Eagles, maybe he is a good fit, also a northeast guy.

Greg Schiano will end up here before Chip Kelly does.

No, no, a thousand times no to Schiano.

UConn, despite this year's futility and former AD Hathaway's rash incompetency in hiring Pasqualoni/DeLeone, should actually be a pretty good gig for someone wanting to build a program and make a name (or redeem themselves). There's money for assistants, great facilities, and a fan base that got a brief taste of winning and had it yanked away overnight.

With Manuel as AD, UConn is committed to winning in all major sports - and getting to a better conference asap. The biggest obstacle to them hiring a great HC is who else is expected to be hiring in the next 1-2 years.

A few names to consider, all will be HCs soon (though bigger programs than UConn may be interested):
Pat Narduzzi (DC - MSU)
Tom Herman (OC - OSU)
James Coley (OC - Miami)
Bob Diaco (DC - ND)

Guys with HC experience:
Pete Lembo (HC - Ball St.)
Dave Clawson (HC - Bowling Green)
Tom Bradley (former DC/interim HC - PSU, currently CBS analyst)

Dark Horses:
James Franklin (HC - Vandy) - he'll never win there.
Eric Mangini - a CT guy

There are a couple of NFL coordinators with major FBS experience that might also be a good fit.

Eric Mangini may be good for Uconn. He is a pretty well known as a head coach in the NFL may sit will with recruits from the northeast since he is from there. Or maybe they need a coach familiar with the south?
