This is the part of the coaching cycle where people just start throwing names out there. Paul Myerberg of USA TODAY cast the first stone:
Here are a few candidates for the university to consider:
Indiana State head coach Trent Miles
Liberty head coach Turner Gill
Towson head coach Rob Ambrose
Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco
Syracuse defensive coordinator Scott Shafer
Kent State offensive coordinator Brian Rock
For what it's worth, Gill finished 6-5 (5-1) with Liberty in his first year with the Liberty Flames, good enough to earn one-third of a Big South championship.
An FCS coach would make the most sense. Just remember their place in the pipeline of coaching success.
