|The return of the Prodigal Son needs more hat.|
There are a few things we know about major coaching positions heading in to next year. Brady Hoke will not be Michigan's coach next year and Will Muschamp will not be Florida's coach next year. Those are surely not the only moves that will happen but just the most high profile shifts that will surely reverberate throughout the coaching industry.
Brady Hoke is fired
Les Miles takes Michigan job
Mark Hudspeth takes the LSU
Will Muschamp is fired
Jim McElwain takes the Florida job
Tom Coughlin is fired
Brian Kelly moves to the New York Giants
Gary Patterson takes the Notre Dame job
Ruffin McNeil takes the TCU job
It would be so fun to watch these two on opposite sides of the Iron Bowl
Rex Ryan is fired
Nick Saban leaves Alabama for New York Jets
Alabama hires Jim Harbaugh
49ers hires Gus Malzahn
Auburn hires Dana Holgorson
West Virginia hires Chuck Martin
All of this leads to Rutgers hiring Dan Mullen after both Rutgers and Mississippi State finish only barely Bowl eligible in 2015. Mullen then hires South Jersey native and former 49ers and Stanford Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman to the OC position after he sits out a year of coaching after the 49ers staff is turned over. Mullen then hires former Florida Defensive Coordinator and recruiter extraordinaire DJ Durkin to be the DC. Boom. Rutgers National Championship in 2016. This all happens just a short year after bringing in the best class in school history by going 10 for 10 with NJ's top recruits Rashan Gary, Kareem Walker, and Jarrett Guarantano, Cameron Chambers, Jordan Fuller, Ahmir Mitchell, Brad Hawkins, Quayshon Alexander, Ron Johnson, and Hasise Dubois all become Scarlet Knights. A dynasty is born in New Jersey! Could it happen? Maybe, or Rutgers just goes undefeated next year, signs the same recruiting class and inks Flood, Friedgen, and Rossi to long term contracts to fend off the NFL teams begging for their services. It will be one of the two.
