coaches we failed to hire - where are they now?

Coming off the worst season at FSU in probably 50 years, he is headed to Texas A&M, which I would call less than a lateral move Jack Del Rio had a good season last year, but now his seat is getting warmer as the Raiders look very lackluster Chris Petersen looks good on paper with 22-4 over the last two years, but who have they beaten? Chris is 0-1 against Clay Helton with no top 10 wins Kevin Sumlin... will struggle to find work at a power 5 program this offseason James Franklin has Penn State much-improved. Probably the most impressive resume of any of these coaches over the last two years... except not as good as Helton's resume. CrownoftheValley, Surf On, woohit42 and 6 others like this.
