2022 Coaching Carousel

After 12 years, David Shaw has stepped down at Stanford. Shaw said he isn't burnt out but he's an NFL guy and no offseason in college was getting to him. He added that Stanford has to change some things to compete and get back to where Harbaugh and early Shaw had them. He essentially said Stanford isn't equipped as is to compete in the NIL era. Shaw went 96-54 which is the best mark in school history. He was just 6-18 the last 2 years. Shaw will probably be looking for a spot on an NFL staff now, he was once a hot name for NFL jobs a few years ago.

Georgia Tech is expected to kick the search into high gear with the season over. Key is a candidate but not a lock. Those who have spoken with Batt believe O'Brien is his top pick but there's some thought O'Brien might prefer going back to New England to be OC rather than stay in college. Tulane HC Willie Fritz and Coastal HC Jamey Chadwell are also getting interest from Batt. 

One thing everyone seems to agree on, O'Brien is done in Tuscaloosa.

Georgia Tech is getting close to a deal with Tulane HC Willie Fritz. They reportedly were deep in negotiations with O'Brien but he wants to see if he can return to the NFL and isn't ready to committ yet. Batt wants a HC asap and wants to get Fritz in quickly. 

that is a very nice hire for GT..  He will at least get them competitive.

People in the room confirmed Fickell told them he's the new HC at Wisconsin 

Another great hire IMO.  You add this with rhule to nebraska and fritz to tech (if that happens) would be 3 great hires and then we have auburn.. looks like the fan's reaction to the freeze possible hire has scared off some of the boosters.. again will be more infighting.

Still think Barn ought to give Cadillac a serious look, Freeze is more likely to melt down than succeed

Tech has called a team meeting tonight. Expected to tell the players that Fritz is the new HC. 

Fritz is expected to remain with Tulane for next weeks AAC championship. If Tulane wins they'll be going to a NY6 bowl. 

Meeting between Tech and Fritz ended with no deal. He's still at the top but Batt will be meeting with other candidates in the meantime.

The weirdest thing to me is how Auburn tried to fire Harsin for a sex scandal only to hire a guy who has literally been fired for… a sex scandal. 

Plus they’re hiring a guy who isn’t as good a coach as Gus Malzahn. 

It's almost like they fired Gus, had a bad experience, then hired Gus light.
