WaPo: James Franklin to Be Next Vanderbilt Head Coach

The Washington Post is at it again with the Vanderbilt head coaching search, this time reporting that it's Marlyand OC James Franklin who will be Vanderbilt's next head football coach. If it comes to pass, that means the SEC will have taken the nation's only two head coaches in waiting away from the schools they were supposed to take over. Anchor of Gold is on top of the story, and the denizens there don't seem wowed by the hire. Honestly, I wouldn't be either after being told erroneously that Gus Malzahn was going to be the next coach.

Herb Hand Talks Gus Malzahn, Chip Kelly

Vanderbilt offensive line coach Herb Hand knows the two offensive minds in the national title game better than perhaps anyone. He worked with Gus Malzahn for two seasons and helped teach Chip Kelly about spread offense football. He has some interesting things to say about these two guys. Also of note is that three of the last six national title game participants have been adherents to the hurry-up offense: both teams this year and 2008 Oklahoma. Given how much coaches tend to be copycats, this could be a sign of big things to come.

If at first you don't succeed ...

Having fired spread-minded offense coordinator Tony Franklin, Auburn has now decided to bring in spread-minded offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. What's troubling here is not necessarily the firing of Franklin or the hiring of Malzahn, whose Tulsa offenses have certainly been dynamic; it's that whoever is in charge in Auburn seems to have no overarching idea on where the Tigers should go. It might help if we knew who was in charge at Auburn, but we really don't.
