***Unconfirmed Sources***

But a lot of signs are pointing to Gill as the next Auburn head coach…


2:18 PM Friday

Door closing? According to the source who originally leaked the muschamp news late last night and has been quoted on ESPN all day… Boom is not going anywhere

Muschamp said, there is “zero chance” he leaves Texas for the head coaching job at Auburn. He added, “I’m going to be the next head coach at the University of Texas.”

More denials from Boom in a AJC article earlier this afternoon…

Just got off the phone with Will Muschamp, the defensive coordinator and head coach in waiting at Texas. He emphatically shot down television reports in Mobile that he would be the named the next coach at Auburn today.“I have not talked to Auburn about this job and I have no interest in the job,” said Muschamp. “I really don’t know what else to say. I’m going to stay at Texas until they fire me.” My sources tell me that some Board of Trustee members did pick up the phone and call Muschamp to find out if he was interested. But those sources also tell me that when Muschamp was at Auburn as DC, he and athletics director Jay Jacobs did not part on the best of terms.

ESPN reporting TCU’s Gary Patterson (there goes your pick Cowart) is no longer interested after interviewing on Thursday. ESPN has also confirmed that AD Jay Jacobs plans to interview Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe. The last three seasons Grobe has led Wake to three consecutive bowl games for the first time in school history. Wake won the ACC Championship in 2006 for only the second time in school history. Grobe is 53-44 in eight seasons at Wake. There are also rumblings that Georgia Tech’s Paul Johnson and East Carolina’s Skip Holtz could be targets.

-and the pendulum swings back towards Gill…rumor has it if Muschamp can work out w/ AU admin that he doesn’t have to report to Jay Jacobs and just report to Gogue, the Auburn president, he will take the job. If you remember last year if it wasnt for JJ CWM might still be @ Auburn. Also, many are saying that the Syracuse job was Gill’s to lose but he passed on it in hopes of a phone call from Auburn. But its still all rumors…


 Can we just hire CTG and get it over with?


Texas QB Colt McCoy to Follow Muschamp to Auburn

src=”” /> 

Fox news in Mobile is reporting that Texas QB and Heisman Finalist Colt McCoy who recentley announced he would return for his senior year, has decided to follow his favorite coach to Auburn University.  In a statement released earlier this morning, McCoy had the following things to say….

 On his main reason for leaving Texas – “I am so tired of Matthew Mcconaughey walking around campus with his shirt off.  I mean it’s December and he doesn’t even go to school here.”

On why he would follow a defensive co-ordinator when he plays offense – “Well Now that Muschamp will be the HC, I figure he would chest bump the offensive players too, jeez I can’t wait to feel that man against me.”

On having to sit out a year - ”Well Mr. Jacobs and Mr. Louder have promised me Lagdon Hall auditorium full of virgins to keep me in football shape”

On his future teammate and fellow QB, Kodi Burns – “He’s  a decent scrambling QB…. for  a black guy.”

McCoy also expressed that he was so upset that Texas got the shaft when it came to a bid to play in the BCS National Title game and that he could never see that happening to a solid SEC School like Auburn.
