I’ve said it for awhile but I’ll say it again- he’s my number one. Would be a guy that laid a foundation and set us up for long term success. Not flashy but so much more likely to be a durable solution. He might fail miserably but I would bet otherwise 

And has the personality that Auburn fans typically like.

Plus, that ‘stache (He would have to bring that back). We may not hire him but we will regret it if we don’t……letting it all hang out here

I could also be on board with Deion but that’s a real flyer for multiple reasons…

The more I think about sanders the more I think he is low risk/high reward. If this season goes the way it looks right now, we would be hard presses to get much worse and we know deion would bring in the talent. I agree its not very likely but I've warmed considerably over the week.

Mainly because I don't see any way Kiffin and Stoops would even consider, Grimes and Sanders would be my first two calls. If either of those are our next HC, we should be ecstatic IMO. With what Harbach says, though (combined with McGlynn), I'm unsure. Freeze is by far the likeliest of anyone listed to come here I think.

@Mikey:  I see I have converted another. :)

Well, our defense would be formidable again. That'd be nice.

There's really no reason to think that.  Muschamp as a head coach fields much weaker defenses than Muschamp the DC.

At Florida his defenses ranked top ten in total team defense only once.  His season rankings were 21st, 5th, 15th, 20th.  At South Carolina the highest they ever ranked was 25th and the majority of the years he was there they were ranked in the 50s and 60s, and the last year they were ranked 109th.  The defenses got worse every year he was there.

Similarly, he started out recruiting lights-out at UF.  But his 3rd and 4th class dropped from 3rd in 2011 and 2012 to 9th and then 21st his last year.

At USCe he hovered right around 20th in recruiting every year he was there.

I think Muschamp would be a bad hire for three reasons.

1.  He's a bad HC.  He may be a great DC, but he's a bad HC.  Two different skills sets.

2.  I think we need an offensive specialist, not a defensive one.

3.  The way he went about leaving Auburn the last time was very jerky.  Clearly there is someone associated with the program he can't get along with.  I think we'd be guaranteeing problems of that kind by hiring him again.

You have no idea who the Sanders coaching staff would look like.

I do have an idea - it would look much better than the current staff.

Honestly I don't remember all the details.  The gist of it is that the reason he left after one year in a three year contract that was unusually generous for a coordinator is because he had personality conflicts with...someone (I really don't remember the full story).  That despite the fact that it would have been in his best interest to work out that contract and THEN try to find another HC position he aggressively searched and took the first thing he could find to get out as quick as he could.  And he reportedly made some sort of show of leaving and insulted Auburn on his way out the door in some way.

But really, that's not the big reason I wouldn't hire him.  He's just not a good HC.

I disagree about needing an offensive specialist versus defensive but agree with pretty much everything else. I based that on the success I’ve seen from defensive oriented coaches. I feel like it is much harder to find a defensive mastermind than an offensive specialist.

I’m becoming increasingly convinced no matter what HC, asst Coach, AD, or President we hire, that’s going to be the case. Someone can’t get along with someone else is the root of our problem.

Absolutely right.  Only way I'd want him back is as a DC or LB coach

He would be amazing as a DC and associative head coach. I don’t care what anyone says. In a perfect world we would have Dave Aranda and him together.

If Nebraska pulls this off and actually hires Aranda I’m going to be so salty.  

Didn’t hear about that.  If they hire Aranda, would that mean Grimes would take the head coaching position at Baylor and we would lose out on him? He’s from Texas, so he may be a hard get.  He’s my first choice, though.

Sounds like Nebraska is pulling out everything to get Aranda.

For those of you hoping for Mark Stoops, be watching for Mitch Barnhart to be named AD at Auburn. I don't think we get Stoops without Barnhart, but honestly, that would be a bit of a coup for Auburn if we pulled it off.

Stoops seems like the hire ppl will laud and then he'll just be a dud.  I know he's done great for Kentucky.  But will he elevate coming to Auburn?  Tubs was great for Ole Miss, then elevated and did well for us.

In this day of recruiting, can Stoops get talent he's never gotten at Kentucky?

So many GA fans are ready to see Dell go.  They haven't been happy with their RB recruiting.  But most were happy when Uncle Rodney left and he pulled some great talent.

Sauce? From what I can tell they still love the guy.

Todays developments might take Grimes off the list sadly. I would assume he’ll be promoted if Aranda goes to Nebraska.

Would Prime be more likely to come here or GT?

Question. Of all the candidates discussed,  which one would have the most success with our current roster. I realize they could bring a transfer or 2 in as well

How will Stoops be when UT and FL reemerge?  UK has done great while those two have been down. 

I’m just not sold on Stoops.

What the story on Coastal Carolina's Jamey Chadwell?  He's 45yo and gone 26-3 over the last 3 years with a prolific offense.  He seems like the typical Auburn hire.
