    Like Mike Norvell?

    Or will UArizona be too low for him?

    The allegation against RichRod at UofA has so many holes that it's almost a non-starter. That suit is dying a slow death. Obviously, perception would screw RichRod if he were to pursue another high-level job, but aside from being an *******, he doesnt have many skeletons in his closet.

    As for Norvell, he's been up for a few SEC jobs the past couple of seasons, but failed the background check each time. He may be stuck at his current employer for a little while.

    EDIT: I guess FSU decided to forego the background check process. Apparently, when you lose a lot in Tallahassee, the professional standards for its coach go out the window.

    Rich Rod was a jerk but a good coach. As far as character goes with Dick Tomey being a 10 and Bobby Petrino being a 1, I would rate Rich Rod as a 4. Stoops was actually worse in every way. But we are where we are. I support Sumlin for another season

    Absolute joke of a hire at defensive coordinator. Should have fired Sumlin when they had the chance.

    Im fine with Rhoads. Players who’ve played with him love him and he was UCLA’s best recruiter. I see no downside in hiring him

    Except that his defenses have been bottom of the barrel for the past decade...
