Basically, Bowen and a bunch of coordinators from various places including Venables. Not as official “finalists”, but as names that were being bandied around. Basically we were playing small ball and shooting for a hail Mary up-and-comer.

No. The only time Venables has been interviewed for a head coaching job was years ago when Missouri talked with him. They eventually hired Pinkel.

It’s not known who we contacted or who the finalists were. But a quick google search will indicate the names that were being consistently thrown around in 2014, and they were almost entirely not head coaches at the time.

What was known is that we had to go cheap after paying several ex-coaches to go away. So we went cheap and small.

We should have just given Nick Saban a $12MM signing bonus.

Throw in what we still owed Mangino and we actually might have been able to lure Nick to Larryville!

Nick Saban knows the paycheck gets fatter if the program gets fatter. Kansas has been neglected so much that it’s a process to get all the cylinders going again BG12 level.
