Realistically

1) Miles (if we could get him)
2) Tedford, I like that he is a quarterback and offensive minded guy. KU clearly needs the help there.
3) Mora Jr, I just think he would make KU at least decent

I don't want to see Fritz. I just don't think the triple option is the way to go.

I agree on the whole triple option thing. Not week after week in this conference.

Jim Mora Jr. would be a tremendous hire he can coach and recruit

My top choice of coaches who aren't absolutely impossible to get would be Littrell then Miles. I'm assuming Doeren is out of the realm of possibility, but even if he's interested, I'd take Littrell first.

I don't see Doeren leaving NC State. Miles may be too old for a rebuild. Not sure what kind of recruiter Littrell is. Any of them would be a major upgrade.

I'm glad it's on Long and not on me to get this right.

I have done my best to support the guy who was hired just out of wanting our Jayhawks to succeed, but never really approved of any of them prior to their hire. Now I can't speak to having a top choice, or even a top 3, but Mora is an interesting name I hadn't considered.That guy knows the game and is experienced at a high level.
As for Miles, if he retained Hull as part of his staff you would think together they could be a real recruiting force in talent rich Louisiana, wouldn't you?
Whoever we get I hope it's someone who insists on building the program the right way. No shortcuts.

By the way Capper, I'm confident my liberal cat would kick your cat's ass! LOL.

Top 3 choices in my opinion would be:

1. Willie Fritz
2. Seth Litrell
3. Troy Calhoun

Honorable mention:
Jeff Monken
Jim Mora Jr
Les Miles

If you think about running the triple option, and recruiting for that, its a whole different dimension. We wouldn't be going up against OU, Texas and others for the same kind of recruit.

Why has Venables not received any head coaching offers?
His resume seems loaded. OU d has not been the same since his departure and since being at Clemson their d has been top notch.

A lot of good names being floated around on various list out there. I would've been fired up about the Mad Hatter 5 years ago. Not now. Too old. Kiffen too flighty.

Just don't take a flyer. Get a proven builder and winner.

For those of us who were pleading for Zenger to not go after Weis (should have been Doeren), all we can hope is that Long isn’t mesmerized by Wies like BS or Beaty like unwarranted confidence. Also if part of Long’s presser at the time of hire focuses entirely on what a great recruiter of Texas so and so is, it’s more than likely it will end bad. What KU needs is someone with a great analytical mind and severe inner drive but who is low/even keeled. Some of the better coaches tend to have a pretty quiet confident demeanor when not teaching (Belichick, Reid, etc).

What KU has had has been an unhealthy coach with low inner drive and a high energy coach with low IQ. Let’s just hope whatever guy it is works out this time. One would have to believe that low attendance for another 3 yrs could very well be a final nail in the coffin.

Litrell would be the worst pick of those discussed here.

I have a feeling we will be surprised or let down either way, its an upgrade over this mess. I hate being that way because for the most part our players have played their rears off this season for this incompetentent staff and have had minor successes.

We entered this season in the basement. We are now starting to climb the rungs to the first floor, so who ever gets this gig, is getting it in better shape than maybe it was 6 years ago. Either way, Beaty was a bust, and we committed way too much money and time in a bad investment.

I may not have given Miles enough credit for some success at LSu, but will maintain that his best teams were with Saban recruiting classes. His Okie St resume is also a bit misleading when Mike Gundy was his OC and has continued to win at the same pace as Miles did and better.
