2 sources very close to Jeff Long have said that Long has been turned down 6 times, and is now to his "b" list, which includes Dykes, Briles, Smart, and Taggart. The board of trustees is pissed right now and is wanting to step in. If they have to step in then expect Davis, with a few of them still on the Malzahn wagon. However, since the board is appointed by the governor they don't want to piss him off since he is an ASU guy.
This comes from a very reliable source. I hope I'm wrong with all of this.
