Franklin and Strong were never offered ffs. If Long tried to hire Franklin he would be ran out of Fayetteville. He did this during the last basketball search, all smokescreens.

or you can come down off your Petrino and realize that you're still Arkansas...you won't get another Petrino and Franklin would've been a surprisingly good hire for yall...I'm not surprised he turned down Fayetteville to stay in Nashville

Waiting on confirmation to add Butch Jones to our list. All kinds of mixed news out on him right now from he's accepted an offer down to he withdrew his name today.

What do Strong and Franklin have in common that prevented them from being offered?? Could it be the same thing that brought Gene Chizic to Auburn instead of Turner Gill?

Mark Stoop, Sonny Dykes, Butch Jones all said NO to Kentucky

Kyle Tucker ?@KyleTucker_CJ
Per a source inside UK athletics, Butch Jones, Sonny Dykes and Mark Stoops have all said "no thanks" to Kentucky.

Kyle Tucker ?@KyleTucker_CJ
Source on UK football search: "All the agents are telling their coaches it's a dead-end job and if they're an up-and-comer, don't touch it."
