    I'd list possible replacements but trust nothing hear on the web. The only person that has that list is Tom Jurich and he'll get his man. That being said, I'm betting our next coach comes from this list:

    Kirby Smart (not likely)
    Chad Morris
    Pat Narduzzi
    Derek Mason (don't see how as it doesn't seem that he has any recruiting ties in the south and Florida)
    Shawn Watson


    That being said, the name could very well not be on that list. Only Jurich knows.
    Why wouldn't Louisville consider Franklin from Vanderbilt? Seems like he knows the recruiting circles in the area and is obviously successful.

    If the guy is getting looks from NFL clubs then I guessing he views Louisville as somewhat of a lateral move. I've heard his name mentioned, but only by the media. I would certainly be happy with him.

    Tom Jurich had a press conference at noon. He's got his list (he did confirm that super agent Jimmy Sexton has 3 candidates on the list). It's a short list. There will be someone here at least by the end of the week, maybe even mid-week.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    I think Louisville should promote Shawn Watson.

    Mike Munchak is interviewing for Penn State job. I think it's safe to say that the PSU head coach will be either Munchak, Al Golden, or James Franklin
    Shawn Watson is a hell of a QB coach but only an OK play caller. He maybe on Jurich's list along with DC Vance Bedford. But if he's hiring an OC to be the next head coach then it better be Chad Morris.

    Right but some of the things I've heard about that Vanderbilt rape scandal make me think Franklin ought to be the last choice to go up there right now.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    Re: Louisville coaching search

    AD Tom Jurich has interviewed 7 candidates per the story below. Card Chronicle is a blog but it is the best U of L blog on the web and Mike Rutherford is very responsible in running it. You can take it to the bank that this list is legit. The interest in Petrino surprises me and I hope he isn't the final choice. We should know something within the next 48 hours.

    http://www.cardchronicle.com/2014/1/...on-chad-morris

    Less than three days after officially finding out that he had a vacancy to fill, Tom Jurich has interviewed seven candidates to be the next head football coach at the University of Louisville, a source with the program tells Card Chronicle.

    Jurich's search process is now being described as "winding down."

    So who's the front-runner at this moment? Although that exact term was never used, Jurich is "very, very interested" in Bobby Petrino, and believes that everything he's learned since leaving U of L the first time would result in a "new Bobby" coming to Louisville. He personally forgave Petrino a long time ago, but understands the concerns held by some within the fan base and at the university.

    In four seasons at Louisville, Petrino led the Cardinals to an overall record of 41-9, two top 10 finishes and a victory in the 2007 Orange Bowl.

    As for the other candidates, the source wouldn't confirm the names of anyone who has been formally contacted by U of L outside of Vance Bedford and Shawn Watson, but did name Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris, Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi and Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason as candidates for the position. It was also mentioned that Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez was never targeted by Jurich.

    Sounds like a strong list but I hope it isn't Petrino as he is a schmuck!

    Unfortunately I've got it on good authority that Western Kentucky OC Jeff Brohm is going to be the new head coach at Western Kentucky University which means the next coach of the University of Louisville will be one Robert Petrino Jr.

    I never liked him. He is a very good coach and recruits well, but I put him on the same moral level as Lane Kiffin. I don't know if he is really all that bad but I just always got that kind of feeling from him.

    Actually he really doesn't recruit all that well. I guess you could say his recruiting is "meh". He very rarely gets 4 or 5 stars, most 3s and 2s. He coaches them up. He's a hell of an offensive football coach though. My disagreement on the hire had more to do with football philosophy reasons. Strong was rebuilding the program in the mold of an SEC team. Power run with a hard hitting defense. You have to do that if you want to win a National Title. FSU had a fast athletic defense with a good QB this season. This past U of L team was the same way, we just didn't have the schedule to get us ranked high. Petrino doesn't care enough about defense. His offensive philosophy puts too much stress on the defense. He's going to win here for sure but unless he recruits better, I don't think he's going to get over that hump and win a National Title. And in my eyes, that's what its all about.

    Another thing that another U of L fan brought up on Twitter: "It's hard to be really happy with a coach no one else wants"

    I guess that sums it up for me.

    That's horrible news. I'm sorry.
