Coaching Carousel Off and Rolling

Videos by OutKick


I’m headed down to Florida for Thanksgiving so I’m going to be traveling with my family for most of the rest of the afternoon.

But I didn’t want to miss Outkick the Show given how many stories there are this week so I did an early version today. It’s linked below.

Before we get to college football coaching news and rumors, I want to encourage all of you to go vote for which SEC school has the best tailgate. If your school wins we will come to your school and throw a big, open bar party at your school. So go vote here for which SEC school has the best tailgate. 

Several big coaching stories to discuss on here today:

1. I’m told Texas A&M and Kevin Sumlin have a fundamentally broken relationship and Sumlin will be leaving no matter what happens against LSU. Sumlin will likely have several suitors in major college football before all is said and done.

2. Jimbo Fisher to Texas A&M is likely to happen.

3. Gus Malzahn to Arkansas is likely if Auburn loses to Alabama this weekend. But if Malzahn wins the Iron Bowl and then also wins the SEC title game then Arkansas wouldn’t wait for him.

4. The Vols are still hoping Jon Gruden is their next coach, but Dan Mullen is their back up plan.

5. Chip Kelly has to decide between UCLA and Florida and no one knows for sure what he’s going to decide, but if he picks Florida then Kevin Sumlin to UCLA is a very real possibility.

All of this is discussed here on today’s Outkick the Show.
