Not trying to be a pain here, but what makes him a solid hire? His overall record is pretty good at a MAC and a Big East school. His conference record in the Big East currently sits at 10-9. That isn't encouraging to me. The loss to Rutgers at home last weekend without scoring a TD is weighing on me too.. I think he might be a hire, but I don't really consider him a solid hire.

Cinci was BE Co-champs last year for the regular season. He will have recruiting connections in the Cinci area and hiring a coordinator that can recruit the south would be a nice mix. Plus, he is energetic and full of fire which is badly needed in Lexington.
UK should also consider McIntyre, he would be an awesome choice for UK if Jones turns us down.
