It’s been a rumor-filled week with coaching hot boards, done deals that aren’t done, and retired coaches being spotted on campus (who weren’t really on campus). Luckily for Nolecast fans, Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith are back to help you separate fact from fiction. Get comfortable and settle in for just over an hour of discussion surrounding where FSU stands in naming its new coach.

This week’s Nolecast addresses the Bob Stoop rumors surrounding the program. Would Stoops really accept the head coaching position at Florida State? Bud provides the pros and cons from Stoops’ point of view. Is the chance to coach an elite program one last time worth Stoops giving up the retirement lifestyle that he’s embracing? Will the uncertainty of FSU’s future leadership prove to be a barrier in the hiring of a new coach?

Bud and Ingram cover these topics and also dive into other potential candidates. Click below to listen to the latest Nolecast in its entirety.
