I'm not sure I've ever seen any job vacancy where the skill gap between the first and second option is as great as it has to be between Les Miles and whoever KU's second option is. Just look at who they found the last time they had an opening.

I think that was part of a plan.  They wanted a cheap coach while they paid off past failures.  If they caught lightning in a bottle, great, but I don't think they actually expected an A&M WR coach to be the answer.

You're saying they either wanted, or didn't care, if they went 6-39 (currently) over the next four years??? If that's true, then they absolutely deserve to be Weised again by Miles...whom I still don't think would take the job but... money talks.

Of course they would prefer to win and hoped to be more than 6-39, but they were more focused on limiting their losses with Beatty.  To pay a halfway legit coach to go there would've cost a small fortune and they were already deep in the hole with the last two.  Beatty left the program better than when he found it.  If not a better product on the field, he at least let them clean up their books some.

Rumblings about some guy named Dan Enos?  I guess he's Alabama's QB coach.

Would make for an excellent hire, imo.  Go for it Jeff!

They're 100% convinced it's Miles, he's going to keep the good Louisiana recruiter dude and they're going to recruit better than LSU. With the new excitement, donations and blank checks will be in shortly after the announcement and they will be able to start stadium renovations asap.

God, coaching searches are so much fun and lead to amazingly dreamy thoughts.

I'm jelly.

They'll be the only AD in the country with national championship coaching staffs in both basketball and football.

But their AD is currently in Dallas and there's this:

Quote
We have a backup deal in place with Littrell, and Miles is on the clock to take our offer. If he doesn't sign in the next hour, then we sign the Littrell contract and bring him to Lawrence. If Miles agrees, we head to BR, pick him up and bring him to LFK.

THIS IS ALL SO EXCITING FOR THEM

Maybe everyone is floating the Littrell rumors so that KU will "steal" him from us, and then we bring in Venables.   sneaky.

I knew it!  Hello Venables....

Did you not read that? KU will sign whoever they choose, it's not the other way around.

My guess is they wait until the day after UM/tOSU. If Michigan loses and doesn't make the champ game, they'll sign Harbaugh. If UM wins, they'll move on to signing whoever their #2 is.

If I was the KU AD, I'd throw everything I could at Leach. If he truly wants out of WSU, he'd listen. Offer him a million dollar raise and complete control of everything, alter the stadium renos to have a pirate ship in the open area thing like Tampa has, uniform options.. everything

They literally could not afford to pay him 4.5 million a year.  It would break them.

I don’t think they are going to have any obstacles with money in hiring their next coach.

Yeah, just look at all their great stadium upgrades. Money is of no consequence

if money is no object why on earth did they just put themselves thru the david beaty qb coach of A&M experiment for the last 4 years?

I wonder if this leadership change will cause our recruit to look elsewhere?

I think losing the Sunflower Showdown will make him reevaluate too :frown:

Man, ku fans love acting like Mike Lee owns Alex Barnes because of a dirty hit two years ago. Lee seemed legitimately scared of Barnes today.
