Coaches Who May Make a Move Up (Posted on 11/21/12 at 1:12 pm)
Here's a list of some guys who I think who could get a shot at a big school in the next 3-5 years if they keep having success. Any additions, subtractions, thoughts?
Dave Doeren - 5 seasons as Wisconsin DC, 2nd year as HC at northern illinois with record of 21-4
Gary Anderson - 5 seasons as Utah DC, 4th season as HC at utah state with record of 24-24, but is 9-2 this year

Darrell Hazell - 6 seasons as Ohio St. WR/ass HC, 2nd year as HC at Kent St with 15-8 record, 10-1 this season
Sonny Dykes - 3 seasons as OC/QB coach at Arizona, 3rd season at La Tech with record of 22-14, 9-2 this season
Charlie Strong - 8 seasons as DC, interim HC, co-DC, 3rd season at Louisville with record of 23-13, 9-1 this season
Mike MacIntyre - 2 seasons as Duke DC, 3rd season as HC at San Jose St with record of 15-21, 9-2 record this year

You should add WKU's Taggart to that list. He's going to end up somewhere soon enough IMO.
Done. He's going to need at least an 8 win season to break through, IMO. If they beat N. Texas and win a bowl game, his resume will look much better. Or, he can just continue the success and improve a little bit next year. That said, he's a former player, so he might be content just staying at WKU forever if he can have a little bit of success.
