Tuesday News ---- Jan 12th, 2010

Football scoop reports that former UMass player and current Troy OC Neal Brown is being considered for the OC position at Texas Tech. I've blogged about Brown before. Brown appears to be one of the brightest young offensive minds in coaching. I've always hoped that he would do a head coaching tour at UMass. If he is appointed OC at the Red Raiders, he may bypass FCS football completely.

UPDATE: It is confirmed that Texas Tech has contacted Brown.

The New York Post mentions current Miami OC Mark Whipple in connection with the open HC position in South Florida.

Hot off the Press: Interior Offensive Line Coach Guido Falbo is also in the Mix for the USF head coaching job. Supposedly he is real close, and knows the AD on a personal level.

If he gets the job do you think he will bring any of the UMASS coaches?

Were too late for Neal Brown. He's going on to an FBS HC job.

The HC position at USF will go to M. Whipple, if he's at all interested. Why USF got rid of Leavitt is beyond me....
