As the Carousel Spins-Tuesday Episode

Here is the latest daytime drama from the coaching carousel. Let's see what's spinning on this Tuesday afternoon...

     According to Chip Brown of orangebloods.com, Mack Brown has hired former Florida OC Steve Addazio to become the new OL Coach at Texas. Addazio would be involved in recruiting as he was at Florida, but would not be a play caller for the Horns.
     James Franklin has brought on former Miami assistant Wesley McGriff to become the new DB Coach at Vanderbilt. It has also been reported that John Donovan will be the new OC for the Commodores. Donovan was brought over from Maryland. It also appears that Ricky Rahne will leave the staff at Kansas State to join Franklin at Vandy.
     Notre Dame OC Charlie Molnar is the second conformed interview for Temple according to sources. Kirk Ciarrocca has received several hits as searches for us, and we reported his name yesterday.
     Darrell Hazell has brought Ohio State Defensive QC Coach Marcus Freeman to Kent State as LB Coach. Hazell also said that he never watched any film of Kent State before accepting the job. Sounds like a guy who just wanted to be a HC and didn't care where. Dangerous mentality. good luck with that.
     Ryan Nielson of Tennessee-Martin is the new DL Coach at Northern Illinois for Dan Doeren.
     New Mexico HC Mike Locksley has promoted George Barlow to be the new DC for the Lobos. Doug Mallory left for Indiana to join new HC Kevin Wilson as Co-DC.
     Stephen F. Austin OC Shannon Dawson has left to take an unspecified job at West Virginia according to reports. He will join the Mountaineers after the bowl game. Dawson leaves the Lumberjacks after SFA QB Jeremy Moses was named our All-Bilo QB of the Year.
     Utah State CB Coach Corey Raymond has joined the staff of Kevin Wilson at Indiana. His position has not been specified at this time. Purdue LB Coach Mark Hagin will coach the D Line and Special teams for Indiana as well.
     Bronco Mendenhall is making staff changes on the offensive side of the ball at BYU despite the shelling that the Cougars dropped on UTEP in the NEw Mexico Bowl. He has told all offensive staff to seek jobs elsewhere while he decides which direction he intends to go in with the shuffling of staff.
     OL Coach John McDonnell and Rb Coach Sedrick Irvin have been let go by HC Larry Porter at Memphis. No replacements have been made.
     Bill Miller has accepted the position of LB Coach at  Minnesota. Dan Berezowitz, Tony Sorentino, and Jordan Gigli have been let go from the prior staff. Daryl Agpalsa and Jesse Nelson have been retained.
