Major Applewhite, A look at the main candidates and scenarios coaching replacement for Greg Davis, Texas offensive coordinator following: In what some insiders say that the preference of Mack Brown, now assistant coach Major Applewhite was named co-offensive coordinator with former Longhorns assistant Tim Brewster, who was recently fired as head coach of Minnesota. Applewhite would call the offensive plays and direct the Texas passing game; Brewster oversees the running game. Why it works: Applewhite, still popular with fans, has a relationship with Garrett Gilbert and served as offensive coordinator for Alabama and rice.
Why would not: Is 32-year loan Applewhite? And we hear Brewster wants to truly be a head coach, and interview with the state of Texas this week. In this scenario, Applewhite would still assume the co-coordinator and play-calling duties, but the offensive line coach of the Wisconsin / run game coordinator Bob Bostad would join him instead of Brewster. Bostad would do exactly what he did for the Badgers: The offensive line coach and keep the running game churning.
Why it works: The Badgers are not an implementation team no longer – there is a balance. Why would not: bowls of Wisconsin is not until New Year’s Day; Brown would be willing to wait until 2011 to make the rent? Former Lake Travis coach Chad Morris High School, Gilbert has guided to a state championship in the past year QB would be back in Austin and Texas to oversee the offense. It is a further aspect Hawaii Bowl to finish his first season as offensive coordinator of Tulsa.
Why it works: Morris and Gilbert are close, if magic worked together once, why not again?
Why would not: Would Morris calling the plays: the Longhorns start passing on almost every game? Malcolm Brown, are you listening?
A veteran of the Boise State staff, Bryan Harsin is in his fourth season as offensive coordinator for the Broncos and coach quarterbacks. Its success offenses were marked by creativity and big plays. And do not forget he spent a week in Austin in the spring, in collaboration with Brown as coach of access and sharing of information, advice and philosophies.
Why it works: Under Harsin, Boise State offense is the second best score in the country, and groomed in a quart Kellen Moore Heisman Trophy candidate.
Why would not: Would Harsin want to leave Boise, for he is the heir apparent of super-hot head coaching candidate Chris Petersen?
Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain, who took over as boss Applewhite offensive the Crimson Tide in 2008, is another hot coaching candidate to be considered for head coaching jobs. In his second season there, he directed ‘Bama to the national title.
Why it works: It will provide the kind of offensive balance philosophy that Texas wanted, but could not achieve in 2010. And he climbed over a major college program to another.
Why would not: Is the immediate future McElwain still an assistant in college? He has already interviewed for the position of head coach of Colorado.
Those probably not make the cut…
… But who will be mentioned as possibilities:
Todd Dodge, a free agent: UT quarterback was crazy-good as Southlake Carroll High School head coach – but mad-bad North Texas.
Dana Holgorsen Oklahoma State: The disciple Mike Leach has done wonders at OSU, but how his crime crisis in Texas?
Gus Malzahn, Auburn: Auburn How much success is because of Malzahn, and how much due to Cam Newton? Moreover, it would not be available until at least mid-January.
