Im actually hoping for Napier. What he has done at ULL is remarkable. And he's sustained it. Most "hot name" coaches have 1 or 2 good years. This guy has a track record of success and also built a program at ULL that's respectable. He's also got people in Lafayette bought in. And probably the most important thing, is his relationship with all of the high school coaches here. I didn't realize he was the one on Saban's staff who was raiding Louisiana and getting the top recruits from here when he was on Saban's staff. I think he's the kind of coach that would stay here for 10-15 years and not only have teams that are consistent winners, but compete for championships every 3 or 4 years. I know Mel Tucker is a good coach, but he hasn't done it for long and he hasn't a head coach anywhere long enough to show that he can sustain it. Maybe if he had stayed at Colorado and kept winning, but he bolted which makes me wonder if he can actually sustain winning at a school. And I don't say that because I think he can't do it, I say it simply because there's no evidence of it.

I would bet any amount of money it won’t be Bob Stoops.

Urban Meyer not even listed! Great news. Vegas can't lose when he's hired. Makes sense they wouldn't have him on there.

He sucks, why would we want him? Can’t win anything that matters and is a flight risk to the NFL every year
