    Michigan State has their coach

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061127/...gan_st_coach_1

    DETROIT - Michigan State is close to hiring Cincinnati's Mark Dantonio as its football coach, with an official telling The Associated Press on Sunday night that university president Lou Anna Simon will recommend the move to the board of trustees.

    The official, who has knowledge of the latest developments in the coaching search, spoke on condition of anonymity because Michigan State had not yet made an announcement. The school only said that is has scheduled a special board of trustees meeting for Monday morning.

    Dantonio, a former Spartans assistant, would succeed the fired John L. Smith.

    Cincinnati athletic director Mike Thomas knew Dantonio was a candidate for the Michigan State job, Bearcats spokesman Tom Hathaway said late Sunday.

    "He was aware that Dantonio was being interviewed today," Hathaway said.

    Dantonio is in his third year as Cincinnati's head coach. He has an 18-17 record, including a 7-5 mark this season.

    The Spartans finished 4-8 overall and 1-7 in the Big Ten, losing eight of their last nine games. Smith had a 22-26 record in four seasons.
    according to ESPNNEWS it is now official.

    Good move for Dantonio. No matter how what, he'd never make Cincy into a great team like Schiano can do with Rutgers. Mainly because all the great players in Ohio will go to either Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, or USC (in the case of Fred Davis).

    With Michigan State he can atleast compete for some top talent in Michigan, and he will always get above average talent, but maybe never elite.

    I do not see Dantonio staying with MSU long though, if he has success, he'll get a much better job.

    More coaching news

    Expect Alabama coach Mike Shula to lose his job. He reportedly refuses to make staff changes, which has hurt his already shaky status. Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey is likely to be a candidate. There is talk that Alabama has been in touch with Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer and Arkansas' Houston Nutt. . . .
    LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher will emerge quickly as a leading contender at N.C. State. Others who could figure in the mix are Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Norm Chow, ESPN analyst and N.C. State alum Jim Donnan and Houston Texans assistant head coach Mike Sherman. Any talk you hear about Bill Cowher taking over is just that: talk--crazy talk. . . .
    I keep hearing that Southern California's Pete Carroll might have an interest in coaching the Arizona Cardinals if that post opens. Reuniting Carroll with QB Matt Leinart could provide a spark for a player who is the future face of the franchise. . . .
    :pray:

    Would Norm Chow be considered for the USC HC job if Carroll were to get the Arizona HC job?

    Interesting, even if it is just rumor.

    Good for Danantonio. MSU is still a very tough gig... basketball school stuck with UM's leftovers.

    I'd hate to see Shula go. It's still early IMO, especially after finishing so well last year and losing some solid skill players.
    Gaily wouldn't be a bad choice. I'd love to see what he could do with the kind of players that Alabama can attract.
    No way Beamer or Nutt leave. Nutt's been offered many times before. He finally has that team competing with the best of the SEC.
