Positives/Negatives of coach prospects

Link…there is 3 pages….

Name: Turner Gill, Buffalo head coach

Age: 46

Background: Tom Osborne disciple, coached quarterbacks for over a decade at Nebraska.

Why it makes sense: Auburn could get in on the ground level with an up-and-comer in the industry who took the Bulls from 2-10 to MAC champions in three years at Buffalo.

Why it doesn’t: He has limited head coaching experience and no ties to the SEC, a major demerit for a school that doesn’t usually leave the South for its hires.

Name: Will Muschamp, Texas head coach designate

Age: 37

Background: Former LSU and Auburn defensive coordinator.

Why it makes sense: Along with having ties to Auburn, he’s young, energetic and fiery — one of the top rising stars in the coaching ranks.

Why it doesn’t: For all those reasons, the Longhorns locked him up as Mack Brown’s successor. Leaving an elite football school like Texas doesn’t make much sense.
