With Kansas Head Coach Turner Gill firing just moments ago will Kansas Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger interview Stoops for the Head Coaching job and take it?
Why Stoops will be interviewed?
History. Kansas Athletic Director Sheahon Zenger has known the Stoops family since 1991 when he worked with Bob Stoops at the Kansas State staff. Zenger also coached with Mark Stoops at USF in 1996 when Mark was a defensive back coach. Zenger and Stoops connected again at Wyoming from 1997-1999. This to go along with producing a top 10 defense will get Mark Stoops an interview for the Kansas job.
Will Stoops take it? Big if here, but they say money conquers all and Kansas has it.With Kansas recent buyout of Turner Gill for 6 million, Kansas is willing to put up the big money for a head coach. For those who say it's Kansas why would you go there? Mark Mangino proved back in 2007 Kansas can make a BCS Bowl Game.
What do you think? Will money be enough? Will Stoops wait for a better School? Will issues coaching against Bob lead him to turn it down? Will Stoops pull a Gene Chizik(took Iowa State job after Nat Championship)? Will being comfortable with your AD win out?
