    2nd that diabsoule's post was well put.

    There are too many top tier college programs now who compete cut-throat viciously for the top talent, & there's a good reason why those same programs are always among the top-ranked recruiting classes yr after yr. That's also why you would think the successful college coaches who go to the NFL would also be successful there, but usually that's not true, it's the other way around that true (Saban, Carroll, well maybe not Weis).

    You don't have to be a good recruiter in the NFL, where you have to play for the team that drafts you, unless your name is Manning or Elway :--)

        Possible candidates at Florida

        Dan Mullen, Mississippi State: Many say Gators offense hasn't been the same since he left.

        Kyle Whittingham, Utah: Has continued Urban Meyer's success in Salt Lake City.

        Charlie Strong, Louisville: First-year head coach may not have enough experience.

        Chris Petersen, Boise State:
        Lots of similarities between Meyer of 2004 and Petersen of today.

        Bob Stoops, Oklahoma: There was talk last year that this former Gators DC might be ready to move on.

        Gary Patterson, TCU: Name always comes up for BCS-conference openings.

        Jon Gruden, Monday Night Football: Said no to Miami; is Florida preferable to an NFL gig?

        Randy Edsall, Connecticut: Perennial big-school candidate spent four years with Jacksonville Jaguars.

        Jim Harbaugh, Stanford: Maybe the hottest head coach in the country.

        Bobby Petrino, Arkansas: Reportedly the second choice when Meyer was hired.

        Kevin Sumlin, Houston: Jeremy Foley supposedly is impressed by this former Bob Stoops OC.

        Larry Fedora, Southern Miss: Three seasons as Gators OC under Ron Zook.

        Will Muschamp, Texas DC: Horns' head-coaching-in-waiting has SEC background at Georgia, LSU.

        Brian Schottenheimer, New York Jets OC: Coaching up-and-comer was Danny Wuerffel's backup for 1996 title run.

        Gene Chizik, Auburn:
        Could Florida native and Gators alum leave potential Cam Newton mess behind?

        Chip Kelly, Oregon: Could he be in need of another challenge already?

        Kirk Ferentz, Iowa: Well respected coaching mind doesn't feel like a great fit in razzle-dazzle SEC.

        Kerwin Bell, Jacksonville: Former Gators QB's club led I-AA in scoring, total offense.

        Mike Shanahan, Washington Redskins: Long-ago Gators OC is a good friend of Jeremy Foley's.

        Thanks BoneKrusher

          From the FSU perspective only a couple of those worry me and none of them are likely viable long term candidates (Muschamp and Harbaugh). I actually hope UF goes with Chris Peterson so FSU can just kill them in recruiting.

            Interesting observation in regards to Peterson. He's done a pretty good job of recruiting talent to "backwater USA" up in Boise, so much so that the Broncos would most likely pound either Florida or FSU in a game.

              Boise State would not pound FSU with a month to prepare with the current staff at FSU. Florida, yeah they likely would.

              I am not going to flame or try an incite anything, but lets leave it with Chris Peterson's faith would be a big, big issue for many of the kids he'd be recruiting in Florida.

                Mullen seems like the most likely choice, if I was a betting man I'd say it's going to be denim Dan.

                  You can say that Chris Peterson does what he does without getting the recruits that all the big programs did, he he were to continue the way he coaches with elite recruits that he would be able to get at Florida? It would be scary....


                  Dont see Peterson leaving though.

                    many people are speculating the gators are looking outside the urban meyer tree, that means you could cross of willinghan-mullen-strong. some say that bob stoops and peterson are the favorite as of right now. personally, id like to see strong get the job, but its not looking like it right now

                    Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!

                    Go Gators/Pats/Celts/Red Sox!

                      Chris Petersen's first year was the year they shocked OU....that coaching change didnt set them back.

                      Petersen isnt goin to UF.

                            • I wouldn't worry a whole lot about recruiting. The Florida brand does most of the work. You just have to be a willing recruiter, not necessarily a great one there.
