Indications are Matt Campbell is the front runner followed by Lance Leipold. Appalachian State has a very good coach there in Shawn Clark.

Urban Meyer is interested only because the Nebraska job has become a cash cow, plain & simple. We've got a whole series of coaches now, who came here for the dump truck  full of cash they would "earn" and then the three dump trucks full of cash they would get paid to leave after they have dashed the hopes and dreams of eternally optimistic Nebraska fans.

 

AD Steve Pederson fires Solich with no plan to replace him whatsoever. He woos Urban Meyer when he as still at Utah (5 year contract worth $400K/year). He interviewed interim Head Coach Bo Pelini and former NU QB Turner Gill, but hires Bill Callahan.


AD Pederson is fired and replaced by Tom Osborne, who fires Callahan and hires Bo Pelini.

Osborne retires as AD (for the 2nd time) and is replaced by Eichorst.

Eichorst fires Pelini and hires Riley.

Eichorst is fired and replaced by Moos.

Moos fires Riley and does what he was brought to Nebraska to do - hire Scott Frost. The inexplicable thing he did was to later give him a contract extension.

Moos suddenly "retires" and is replaced by Trev Albert. His Job One is to fire Scott Frost and hire his replacement, but not until some apparently powerful boosters finally understand Frost is never going to be the answer. 


Frost gets a bigger buyout than the previous three coaches combined (though not by much). Alberts has bought himself some time to deliberate by making Mickey Joseph the interim. There is an outside chance Mickey shines and makes his job difficult, but make no mistake - Trev Alberts reputation as an AD is going to be based entirely on how this decision plays out.  Osborne is the only one who made a good decision at HC hire, and I hope he's still serving as a consultant (for both Mickey and Trev).

 

I just don't feel good about Urban Meyer. He's just a ...  

 

I'm guessing you didn't hear about the one where Osborne and boosters kept Trev from firing Scott last year?

Wow what an ending to a football game.  Kind of reminds me of the Westerkamp hail Mary catch against NW years ago.

I think there are absolutely zero "indications" right now. More like "third hand accounts of alleged fever dream rumors."

 

With that said I don't want Leipold...but holy s***, Kansas is scoring points this year for sure so far.

It sounds like you’re confident in your assessment.
