I would make a run at him
you would be a joke as an AD. i'm not saying chavis may return to ut as a DC one day if the situation were just right but not as a HC. he doesn't want to be a HC and it would probably ruin his life by removing all the fun out of it. hell, lsu is paying him a million a year to do a job he loves at a school he now loves also. he's be crazy to give hc a try and he'd be crazy to take over at the shitstorm that is ut right now.
