Our Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith return to continue their conversation about how Florida State is going about filling its head-coaching vacancy. The guys foreground their chat on the Tallahassee Democrat’s report that a new HC is unlikely to be announced before this weekend.
Of course, that leads, logically, to hiring someone who still has to coach his team in a conference championship game this weekend. And naturally, that puts Memphis’ Mike Norvell as a top candidate. The Seminoles want someone with experience as a head coach, so tapping a coordinator is improbable— but not impossible. But at this point, with a recruiting class left to salvage, the clock is FSU’s enemy.
As to some other big-name possibilities, like Iowa State’s Matt Campbell, Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly, and Penn State’s James Franklin, it looks like you can turn the page.
And there’s really so much more. To listen to the latest Nolecast in its entirety, click on the link below.
