My sleeper candidate is Bobby Wilder. Currently at old dominion where his total record is 37-9.

He is a northern guy so I don't know if he can translate his success to the south

This guy would be run out of Hattiesburg faster than Ellis.

Anderson. Or Jason Simpson will get the Job.

I don't think Wilder will be chosen but I doubt he would be a bad choice. 37-9 is good even at a FCS level. He's only in his 40s

No to Simpson.

Yes to Anderson, though. He's my #1 choice.

Also Hudspeth takes his name out of the running. Not a huge surprise.

I don't get why Southern Miss fans are so infatuated with Blake Anderdon.

Personally I'd rather have someone with head coaching experience to clean up this mess.

well, they all think hiring a young energetic coach will land them the next Fedora.

ive read their tweets for weeks crying about how Ellis ruined the program, blah blah blah....Key word program. Jeff Bower built the program. Not Fedora. You starting going for these young guys looking for a stepping stone job, you'll be looking for a new coach every 3-4 years. If he's good, he's gone. If he has a bad year, the stupid fans will run him out of town.

they need someone with some sustainability in my opinion.

Supposedly Eddie Gran, FSU associate HC/specials teams/RB coach is in the mix.

Prior to FSU:

quote:

• Gran spent 15 seasons as a running backs coach and special teams coordinator in the SEC, including 10 years at Auburn, followed by a stop at Tennessee before coming to Florida State in 2010.

Gran has a strong record for developing backfield talent. During his 14 seasons as the assistant to Tommy Tuberville at Ole Miss and Auburn, he sent eight running backs to the NFL, including former Tigers Carnell Williams, Ronnie Brown, Rudi Johnson, Brandon Jacobs, Heath Evans and Kenny Irons. They were preceded by former Rebels Deuce McCallister and John Avery.

• Tennessee's Mario Hardesty (1,345 yards) added his name to the lengthy list of 1,000-yard rushers Gran has worked with over the course of his career in `09. Hardesty, who did not fumble on 282 carries from scrimmage in 2009, was a second-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2010. He was selected one slot after Auburn's Ben Tate (Houston Texans), whom Gran coached in 2008.

• Gran's tenure as a special teams coach included oversight of Auburn kicker John Vaughn, who was the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in 2006. With his hands-on approach in all facets of special teams play, Gran is widely regarded as one of the most meticulous in tutoring the game's critical "third phase."

• Beyond the playing field, Gran has established himself as one of the nation's top recruiters. He has spent the better part of two decades recruiting Miami and greater South Florida as his primary territory, where he first crossed paths with Jimbo Fisher. The fertile ground has remained his primary recruiting area with the Seminoles and he helped the Seminoles attract the nation's No. 1 recruiting class in 2011. He and fellow assistant coach Lawrence Dawsey were named two of ESPN.com's Top 25 Recruiters of the Year in 2011.

Yeah Bower won games but going 7-5 every year got old so he resigned before he was fired and they hired Fedora who won games as well and actually took the program to another level, something Bower couldn't do. Fedora would've kept on winning if he would've stayed. As far as the stepping stone thing goes, I'd be happy with that because if this is the case then USM will be good. Obviously USM doesn't have the money to keep a successful coach here for a long time like Alabama, LSU, Georgia, etc..

Jeff Bower didn't build the program. USM has been winning football games for a long time.

What a mess! That deadspin link tells it all. A head coach and AD at odds, the university president leaves, finger pointing, selling the venue to pay off the contract. Wow. smttt

USM hasn't had back to back losing seasons since the 30s. That was 60 years before Bower. USM has always won.

re: Southern Miss HC candidates
I guess if you glorify 5 and 6 win seasons playing at .500 or 1-2 games above

How many bowl games in school history?

How many by Bower?
