Looks like more teams are going to have transition classes for Class of 22 croots. Sorry, let's make that more high profile schools. What we have so far:
Lincoln Riley - OU to USCw - could be dangerous, offensive mind in a major hotbed of skills talent
Sonny Dykes - SMU to TCU (to OU?) - AAC to Big XII for Dykes either way - an "ok" hire for the Frogs, I'd say less than "ok" for the land thieves
Billy Napier - Louisiana to UF - if Strickland is serious about stability, this is the hire - if he's serious about challenging UGa and Bama, doubtful
Josh Heupel - Tennessee to OU - he'd be going home again, not that the fans in Knoxville would miss him, not that they know any better
Brent Venable - Clemson to OU - we'd love this as Noles, 2 of the 3 stud assistants for Dabo in 3 years bailing - OU could afford to pay Venable what it'd take to leave Clemson and he knows the environment
David Cutcliffe - out at Duke - not sure there's real implications here as it feels he lead Duke to what should be considered success there - given his age, I doubt we see him linked to any head coaching gigs, but QB Coach/OC at a P5 school may be a logical step coming up
Brian Kelly - ND to LSU - I've got nothing here other than MAYBE a shot at a CFP, though you've gotta think his antics won't last long with LA kids/families... does Marcus Freeman simply get promoted or does Fickell come over and Freeman take his place at Cincy?
Brent Pry - PSU DC to Virginia Tech HC - Broyles Award finalist, was a GA under Bud Foster in the mid-90s, had been with James Franklin for a while at Vandy and PSU - feels underwhelming
Tony Eliot - Clemson to Duke - Duke officials in SC this weekend to meet with Dabo's OC - PLEASE let this happen
Mario Cristobal - Oregon to Miami (FL) - rumor of $9m/year plus buyout of $8m to Oregon and $7m to Manny to leave - could be less than ideal news for 305 recruiting for us
Anything else y'all got, here's the space.
