It kind of evens out a little since Cincy went to a BCS bowl a few years ago but I still think Tech is a better job because of the state it's in and the conference. Maybe he got tired competing with Texas, A&M, TCU, and Baylor for recruits. That's the only thing I can think of.
Forgot he went there. I think they would consider Petrino and Kingsbury. Tech doesn't really mind taking chances on controversial coaches and they like high powered offenses... will be interesting to see what they do.
