    Gus Malzahn -- Next U. Texas Coach

    Malzahn is already picked and that Mack has agreed to step down while also expressing his support for Malzahn. Supposedly Saban is a smoke screen. I talked to one of my friends just 5 minutes ago about the Saban as smoke screen while we set things up with Malzahn and he said yes, he'd been hearing the same thing. I'm going to try and speak with my other source who is one who will confirm something for me as far as what is going on now. If he says that Malzhan is our guy and the above is true, I will believe this to be the case until shown otherwise.

    I would be stunned if Auburn would let him walk without a fight...their recruiting etc. would be crushed. The Auburn deep pockets will not go down without some sort of counter offer

    Those who said Saban would go and that Tex would do whatever to get Saban HAVE TO BE 200% SURE Malzahn would go

    No way Gus goes to Austin. I know the motto is 'keep Austin weird' but even by those standards.

    So we're basing this all on some dude's "fanpost" on SB Nation. Seems solid.

    It's someone posting to try and see how many hits they can get or if some idiotic network (Hi ESPN!) would be dumb enough to pick the story up to try to be "first" to break a baseless rumor.

    UT made a solid hire for AD with Steve Patterson, but there's a large question of how much power he has in making the actual decision on hires and fires. UT has same old school influences who have more of a say in this than Patterson does because of their deep pockets. Most of those deep pockets are pro-Mack Brown too.

    I lived in Austin for about five years and there's no doubt that the major power players are outside of the Athletic Department and not actually the ones with the titles ... it's that way with many "powerhouse" schools in power conferences I am sure. UT though seems overly big in this though.

    SportsBlogNewYork @SportBlogNYC 33m Don’t be surprised if Nick Saban is named the head coach at Texas very soon. Rumor is deal is in the works, $12M a year.

    Odom, next time you go in for your weekly colonoscopy, see if you can get early treatment for Alzheimer's.

    Or, at least remind the doc that your brain appears to be in your ass. And they're not doing you any favors by removing what little you have.

    You're bush at this.

    No no.. it is not 12 million per year.

    It is 29 million.

    Yeah, that's it. No, make it 40.

    Jesus Christ, first of all-- who the fuk is "SPORTSBLOGNEWYORK"? And how they fuk would they know what is happening in Texas?

    gotta love coaching searches. After recently going through one as an Arkansas fan, I can tell you that you should believe exactly 0 people who are "in the know". Can't tell you how many times I heard people who said they knew someone on the board and they "claimed" to know what was going to happen. In the last three days of the Razorback coaching search I heard multiple "reliable sources" claiming anyone from Patterson to Gundy to Malzahn (kinda wish that one had come to fruition). None of them became the coach.

    IF anything slips, it will be hours before they announce, not days before.

    Too vanilla compared to the other choices maybe?? I don't know, I think he's a good choice too. Him or Briles.

    You figure he knows the recruiting trail

    I haven't followed this too closely but I haven't even heard his name mentioned.

    Im sure it has though

    If the AD goes with a glamor pick like Saban or Malzahn and it doesn't work out, at least the fans were wanting it too.

    If he goes anyone else and it fails, it's his ass.

    Yes we can. Extension and loads of cash for Malzhan from Auburn. Big shocker. Once again, nonsense written by some dipshit on the Internet who wanted to see how many people would leak his load of shit.
