    OU Head Football Coach Candidate List

    It looks like there's a good chance we get to amicably divorce ourselves from HCLR.

    Brainstorming on who Joe C would be looking at.

    The usual suspects:

    Venables - still has two sons at Clemson

    Rhule - would want to bring in his own staff; no continuity

    Aranda - would likely want to bring in his own staff.


    Im fine with hiring a OC/DC also.

    Rhule would be the best option.

      Luke FIckell. No brainer, IMO.

        Im also assuming that with LR's and Joe C's relationship he let him know in advance. So hopefully we've had two weeks or so to plan for this.

            Fickell, Crystobal, Aranda. I'd be fine with anyone who can recruit and run a disciplined program.

                  Im thinking Bob would coach the bowl game. But not a permanent hire or anything.

                        Mark Stoops? Josh Heupel?

                        Or go internal again and pick between Grinch/Gundy/Bedenbaugh?

                        Or bring Bob back please

                          I'm not sold on Aranda. He, like Gundy, benefited a lot from the extra Covid year.

                              Urban Meyer would be the best hire overall. I know he's getting destroyed in the NFL but he's a college coach that never should have gone to the NFL. He'll probably be let go from Jacksonville by years end. I'm not sure OU goes and gets him though. Also he seems like a guy that after a few years would just quit out of nowhere because of pressure.

                                I'm not sure Urb and OU's compliance dept would be sympatico.

                                  Im not a fan of retreads....even the successful ones.

                                  new/young coaches are cheaper and easier to breakup with.

                                        He’ll definitely be on a long list.

                                          I wouldn't mind him as an OC hire if we got a defensive head coach. It would be a nice story for a guy that went here and couldn't play because of an injury to come back and be the HC though. Hopefully we get a culture change to have an aggressive team up front on both sides of the ball. Lincoln was never about that.

                                            Younger assistant coach with SEC ties...If it's not him then then someone like that is who it might be

                                              Call Aranda, and ask him what he wants. He won a title in the SEC. I think they might have to wait a little. You would have the same with Fickel. Cristobal would also be good since he is a South Florida guy who has SEC ties.

                                                I guess we need to wait on news about the staff....who follows LR and who stays behind hoping to get retained by the new guy.

                                                  We could rent him for a few years and that's fine with me. The problem is that we need to not collapse in recruiting and also need to instill some toughness in our players.

                                                    Kiffin would at least be fun.

                                                      Lebby can't be a serious consideration. He does do all the legwork for Kiffin, but c'mon.

                                                        Give me Lebby or Tennessee's OC.

                                                          Has Luke Fickell ever stepped foot outside the state of Ohio? Not sure I like the idea of him.

                                                            It’s easier to go out and hire good OC’s than DC’s. I want to see a good defensive coach that goes out and hires a good OC. Basically what Stoops did. Aranda knows $EC football, he coaches a physical brand. He’s the guy I’d go hard after.

Grinch has been a part of OU and Ohio State system (when Meyer was HC). In addition, he was part of NC teams in college. His mindset is also solid. I hope he get's a realistic shot at the gig.

If I'm right I would be floored if we even remotely considered hiring him.

I know he's getting destroyed in the NFL but he's a college coach that never should have gone to the NFL. He'll probably be let go from Jacksonville by years end. I'm not sure OU goes and gets him though. Also he seems like a guy that after a few years would just quit out of nowhere because of pressure.
                                                                                  He left Ohio State in a great spot when he left & with the NCAA getting out of the punishment game,(going to a more conference will be over that), the compliance department should be better.

And if you want a guy to do that you already have one in your back pocket with Bob Stoops. I bet Bob now regrets letting Lincoln take the reigns seeing how he ended up being.
