John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports
During his "Kentucky Sports Radio" show on Friday, host Matt Jones said that Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops has been "contacted by a 3rd party" about the LSU job. Per SDS:
quote:

Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones reported Friday that Stoops had been contacted by a 3rd party about the head coaching vacancy in Baton Rouge.

“I think there are—and I speak about this not with complete knowledge but some knowledge—there are probably 7 jobs or less that I think Mark Stoops would seriously consider leaving (Kentucky) for. I think LSU is one of those 7.”

Jones added that LSU is also considering Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien and that he might be preferred over Stoops, but “if LSU were to decide Stoops was their guy, it will be worth sweating about.”
After the show, Jones said that a "good LSU source" of his named Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher and Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien as the top 2 candidates, just ahead of Stoops.


What do you think about Fisher, O’Brien, and Stoops?

One of 7 programs he would leave Kentucky for? Wow, talk about loyalty from your head coach. "I love you guys but only until this list of schools need a coach."

NONE OF THE ABOVE. Horrible selections. Absolutely no F$&king way should Bill O'Brien the job. Have you seen the Texans? He is responsible for that. 1 season as the OC at Bama and you have been cleansed? WTF?

O'Brien should never have taken the Penn St. job. You're right.

All of the above coaches have done good things in their careers. However, Dave Aranda is the man for this job. I strongly believe he will be the hire and coach here for a very long time.

BoB isn't a serious candidate

This isn’t true

The Riley story is possible but only 3 people know the truth and they are not saying anything. Most of this info coming out is agent driven to drive up price and have schools bud against each other to make the agent and coach more money

Not getting Jimbo- aTm has deep pockets and they want to keep him O'Brien/Stoops - would take either at least 3 years to get things right Aranda- would hit the ground running! Pay the man- he's worth it!

He has already been there and ain't THAT great.

Not Fisher or O'Brien. Both over rated and won't do anything for LSU.

No to Fisher after Winston and Aranda's defenses were never stellar.

You're right fanaddict, they were never stellar, they were well beyond stellar for the most part... to down right great at times.
