As the Carousel Spins...Tuesday Episode

     The general pace of the coaching carousel has slowed down to a crawl during the Holidays, but I expect some bombs next week as the bowl season comes to a close. Situations at Michigan, Maryland, and Stanford all appear to be in flux at this time, and those situations could set the domino effect rolling. Let's take a look at today's drama.
      Pete Lembo has made a move at Ball State by announcing that his DC at Elon, Jay Bateman, is coming with him as DC for the Cardinals. No other major announcements have been made regarding staff, but I would not be shocked to see several Elon assistants making the move. There is very little available info on the Elon opening at this time.
     ESPN's Joe Schad is reporting that Jacksonville Jaguras DB Coach Thom Kaumeyer is a candidate for the DC job at UCLA. This was actually reported several days ago, and in fact he was one of 4 candidates for the job, and the candidates included former Miami HC Randy Shannon.
     Footballscoop.com is reporting that Maryland is on the cusp of hiring a major coach that is coaching this season, meaning that Mike Leach is not that guy, which as I said yesterday, is a major disaster bearing who it is that they do hire. No word or rumor on who that may be, and I am digging for info on this move.
     Klayton Adams has been moved up from O-Line Coach to OC at Sacramento State today. The Hornets have been undergoing major staff movements since the season ended. The Hornets had a very nice offensive season at times, but the defense was somewhat of a mess.
     UC-Davis has made a move as they have hired former NOrthern Colorado O-Line Coach Brad Beddel to coach the O-Line for the Aggies. Beddel was let go when there was a change at Northern Colorado with the HC job, which has still not been filled.

More news tonight in a bonus edition of "As the Carousel Spins"...
