Sources: Golden Offered Miami Job

SI.Com, and ESPN.Com are reporting that Temple HC Al Golden has an offer to become the new coach of the Hurricanes. The terms are not known, and it is not known as to whether or not Golden will accept or not.
ESPN is now reporting that he has indeed accepted the job. Here comes an even bigger culture change to South Florida.

SI.Com is also reporting that Vanderbilt will name their new HC this week. Auburn OC Gus Malzahn has an offer in hand to be the guy, and has not denied it. The other likely candidates at this point would be James Franklin of Maryland and Ken Niumatololo of Navy, with Franklin widely considered the front man if Malzahn says no.
The Washington Post is now stating that Malzahn is indeed the guy.

It appears that Major Applewhite may still very well follow Will Muschamp to Florida, but not Duane Akina. Muschamp is believed to be after Alabama DC Kirby Smart for the DC job.

With Greg Davis out at Texas, it seems as if Jim McElwain of Alabama is on the top of everyone's list to get the Texas OC job. No news on the DC search to replace Muschamp as of yet.

Rick Minter is apparently the new DC at Kentucky. Minter, the former Cincinnati HC, spent last season as DC at FCS Indiana State.

There is nothing new to report at Pittsburgh, with the exception that they have added Oklahoma OC Jay Norvell to the list of candidates. Norvell was absolutely horrid as an OC at UCLA, and has never been the main OC at Oklahoma, always having the "co" title. Not sure what anyone sees in the guy, and he is also a former defensive player. Think about it.

Sources are saying that North Carolina Central has interviewed Prairie View HC Henry Frazier.

Northern Arizona HC Jermoe Souers has agrred to a 3 year contract extension. It is not known if he was getting some looks from other programs.

Angelo Mirando will coach the Mississippi State receivers for the bowl, replacing Mark Hudspeth, who is the new HC at UL-Lafayaette. Defensive grad assistant Marcus Lovings has left to join Hudspeth as his D Line Coach. Marshall WR Coach Zach Johnson is an early candidate for MSU OC.

Speaking of UL-Lafayette, Mark Hudspeth has apprently hired Jacksonville State DC Greg Stewart for the DC job at ULL.

Dan McCarney has been busy at North Texas, and his latest hire is former Kansas QB Coach Nick Quartaro.

Bruce Fowler is the new HC at Furman. More on this hire later.

Former Akron HC JD Brookhart has landed as an assistant under Jon Embree at Colorado as the TE/ST Coach. He will also be passing game coodinator for the Buffaloes. Cal O-Line Coach Steve Marshall has also joined the Buffs.

OC Darrell Dickey and O-Line Coach Mike Degory are both out at New Mexico. Scapegoats, as the state would not buy out Mike Locksley, who really deserved to get canned.

Akron DC Curt Mallory has interviewed with Ball State, but there is very little info coing out of Muncie.
