Dude... he's an idiot if he accepts his coaching staff being dictated to him.  

Well, he’s willingly involving himself with Baylor so being an idiot is a pretty safe bet

Is Fuente a HUNH or more of a take your time type offense?  Don't think I've seen 1 Va. Tech game since he's been the coach.

I believe Fuentes ran a pro-spread when he was TCU's OC.

Lincoln Riley 's brother...

BREAKING: SMU hires Garrett Riley as next offensive coordinator 

https://247sports.com/college/smu/Article/SMU-Football-Garrett-Riley-hired-offensive-coordinator-App-State-Lincoln-Riley-142072184/ 

Quote

When Texas Tech's high-flying Air Raid offense was in full swing during the Mike Leach era in Lubbock, SMU head coach Sonny Dykes served as his offensive coordinator, mentoring current Oklahoma head coach and then graduate assistant Lincoln Riley as Riley got his start in coaching.

On Wednesday, sources told Pony Stampede Dykes hired the younger brother of the Sooners coach, Garrett Riley, who will serve as the program's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Garrett replaces Rhett Lashlee, who departed for Miami after two seasons.

Riley arrives in Dallas having spent the past season at Appalachian State as running backs coach and was set to be promoted to offensive coordinator by new head coach Shawn Clark. Riley called plays in the team's 31-17 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl win over UAB when the Mountaineers racked up over 400 yards of offense, including 261 yards on the ground.

Running back Darrynton Evans led a position group that totaled 2,756 yards and 27 rushing touchdowns in 2019. Evans rolled for 1,484 yards and 18 touchdowns while Marcus Williams, Jr. ran for 652 yards and five touchdowns. The top three running backs averaged over 5.77 yards per carry.

When Riley was at Kansas from 2016-2018, serving as an analyst in 2016 then quarterbacks coach in 2017 and fullbacks in 2018. Riley oversaw quarterback Peyton Bender become the Jayhawks' fastest player to pass for 1,000 yards in his career - doing so in his first three games. After Carter Stanley was named starter prior to the Kansas State game, he made his starting debut count by throwing for 418 yards, the fifth-most passing yards in Kansas single-game history.

Riley spent the 2015 season as the outside receivers coach and the 2013 and 2014 seasons as an offensive assistant at East Carolina. During his time coaching the ECU outside receivers, he mentored Zay Jones, who caught 98 passes for 1,009 yards in 2015 and went on to set the NCAA FBS record with 399 career catches.

Former East Carolina head coach Ruffin McNeill and Kansas coach David Beaty weighed in on what Riley brings to a program. His brother has praised his energy that Garrett brings to a college program.

"I've known him and Lindsay for a long time," McNeill said when Riley was hired at App State. "I watched him when he was still a high school player and then as a coach. When I got to East Carolina, he was one of my first hires as a graduate assistant, and then when a full-time position came open it was an immediate appointment. He's been around the top offensive minds in football, and he is one of the top offensive minds."

“He’s versatile. He’s a guy that has coached the tight end spot, he’s coached the wide receiver spot, he’s coached the quarterback spot now. He’s actually called some plays before in games,” Beaty said when Riley was on staff. “There’s so much that he brings to the table for us. I don’t know if I could sit here and list it all. There’s a reason why we hired him at such a young age.”

After walking on at Texas Tech in 2008-09, Riley transferred to Stephen F. Austin in 2010 and helped the Lumberjacks to a Southland Conference title and a No. 1 FCS ranking in both passing and total offense.

What happened here?

TCU: Sources tell FootballScoop Jerry Kill is leaving his position at Virginia Tech to join his good friend Gary Patterson’s staff at TCU. We believe Jeremy Clark first shared the news. At TCU, sources tell us Kill will have a senior role on staff; but will not be one of the 10 countable coaches.

Sources: Jerry Kill headed to TCU to join Patterson's staff

Former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill will join TCU's staff, sources told HornedFrogBlitz on Wednesday. Reports began surfacing that TCU had recently reached out to Kill about joining their staff. Kill is expected to be named the special assistant to the head coach and oversee the Frogs offensive side of the ball.

Kill will not be one of the ten assistant coaches, instead he will overlook the just the offensive side of the ball from coach evaluations, players evaluations, play calls, schemes; virtually everything involved with the offensive side of the ball.

Good coach, but an analyst role makes sense with his health issues.

If Patterson needs someone to babysit Cumbie and Meacham, I'm not sure it's good for Coach Kill's health...  😬

"With Virginia Tech’s Justin Fuente staying put, names in contention at #Baylor include #LSU DC Dave Aranda, Cajuns coach Billy Napier and Baylor assistant Joey McGuire, per sources."

 

So which of the remaining 3 candidates would be the best hire for Baylor... and which would be the worst hire?

McGuire is probably the safest hire, following Rhule's departure.  Conventional wisdom has Napier being as good of an up-and-comer as is still out there right now.  Aranda is the highest beta option on the table.

Who’s going to allow Baylor to regress back to the mean the fastest?

Regress to the mean?  Probably McGuire.

Implode in spectacular and horrifying fashion?  Best bet is Aranda.

If Baylor wants to also help gut LSU in time for our game in BR, that would be great.

Promoting McGuire would likely help them keep Okam, as well.

I'm assuming that one way or another, Texas is going to expect an answer from Okam today. This is entirely me speculating, but if he's their top target (assuming Herman didn't ask him about meaning of Commitment on the phone) they are going to want to announce him and have him locked in for this weekend. They're probably going to try and leverage uncertainty in Baylor for a quick answer, at least I would if I were the head guy at Texas. I'm hoping Herman has a list of guys ready to accept before this weekend that are good, but I know better than to shit in my other hand and run that fucking experiment with this guy.

One of the dudes on the Baylor board tracked a plane from Baton Rouge to Waco so Aranda might be their guy. 

Okam might stay at Baylor for either McGuire or Aranda... Dave Aranda is a hellava good defensive coach.

And half the team declared for the draft. Oh, and Odell Beckham caught on camera handing out wads of cash to players.

I'll fucking toast Baylor hiring Joey McGuire. The odds of that working out are pretty damned slim. He's not Gus Malzahn or Art Briles.

Oh, I agree. But the odds of Baylor hitting on Briles, Rhule, and the next coach consecutively were always pretty slim- just look at our wake of destruction.

They aren't hiring Nick Saban, so this will most likely be a hire of a coach with good potential and not someone who has proven anything.

BTW, the dude who got famous eating the Dilly Bar in the snow is Minny's audio assistant, not Jerry Kill.  Apparently he's still there.

Baylor's boards are almost all united in their desire for McGuire. He's also the guy Rhule officially blessed as the next man up after he left last week.

Yep, and Joe Burrow says it was real cash.

LSU might have screwed up letting Odell on the field and interacting with players, especially following the national championship when there are cameras everywhere.

Joe didn't do his former school any favors by coming out and saying it was real.

Congrats, guys. You won the national championship, had an amazing year and an amazing quarterback and now because of this you get the NCAA sniffing around. Plus they still have the Funes problem, which I don't believe the NCAA has closed the book on yet.
