And according to Jeff Long, we are only looking for a proven ”head coach.” No assistants need apply.

Not putting the interim tag on Bowen means he won't be back either. We need to start from scratch.

It's a neat deal to not have to say these things ever again:

Well, I'm not sorry for him and his $3mil. payoff. I do believe he gave his all for KU Football and I do thank him for that. He simply is not cut out to be a P5 head coach.

I am glad KU has officially taken the next step in cleaning up this mess. It sounds like Long has identified the next coach from reading his tweet. My guess is the new coach is contacting people he wants to hire as his assistant coaches so he can hit the ground running when Long makes his official hiring known to the public. Amateur hour at KU football is over. This is what a professional operation looks like.

Yes, hopefully more revenue will now be used for a true P5 BG12 level conference football program. I will attend a 2019 game(s).

I am not sure on that one. He may be a decent coach some day. He did NOT have the experience required to be a head coach, especially a coach at a mess like KU. He got thrown into a meat grinder.

I do have my doubts he will be a P5 coach, but maybe with some time as an offensive coordinator who knows.

Would love to have Litrell, but I haven’t heard any “rumors” about Seth actually being interested. His next job will likely leapfrog the KU level.

Would not be surprised if Long has had feelers out to several coaches on the (off the record) premise of "if the job were to come open would you be interested?" Need someone with instant recruiting cache to jumpstart next season.

Long sent out a tweet saying he is looking for an experienced head coach. Major Applewhite would not fit that criteria.

Experience is a relative term, but you're right, it doesn't fit the criteria that Long laid out. Going to be hard to fill "a proven program builder" part of the equation.

Again we are faced with the question: who wants to take on this job? A wish list and realistic candidates may be two very different lists.

KU should be a good gig for the right coach. The university just needs to show commitment to football for real, for once. Long is moving in the right direction so far.

Yes, hire Shawn, then fire him when he says it’s Sean Snyder, not Shawn.
