    Is that a he's on the wishlist or is this he's on the list that wants to be interviewed? If he wants to come, bring his ass on. Look at Chizik; lost like he was at Iowa St.

    Hard to see him leaving the state of Arkansas, but he'd be pretty damn good if paired with a good DC.

    Would Gene Chizik be his DC at the right place?

    Again I see that as too much SEC footprint experience. I think Bohn prefers someone with at least some experience in the Pac 12 footprint. I could be wrong though.

    Don't we play Arkansas State this season? Brilliant move, hire Malzahn and we'll know all their secrets.

    This would be a major coup

    You want national name recognition? This is your guy. Are there some concerns? Absolutely. However, we all know this is hardly an exact science.

    Very exciting possibility

    Very succesfull HS head coach, one of the top offensive minds in football and has had very succesfull stints as an offensive coordinator at three different universities, went 9-3 in his first year at Arkansas State with two of those losses coming on the road against top-15 teams, and he's known as a good recruiter. Not sure why there's not more enthusiasm on here for Malzahn, i'd much rather have him then the other five small-confernce head coaches who's names have been brought up.

    I'd love Malzahn, just not getting my hopes up. I don't know if CU is his idea of a good move, seeing as how I'm sure he's thinking he can get an SEC job in a couple more years.

    Of all the names, he is one of my top choices. I could get behind him for sure.

    Go Buffs!

    He's gotta be getting interviews now in SEC land probably Arkansas. I don't see it with him or Strong.

    Relatedly Bohn has always showed an interest in people with experience in our conference footprint.

    He's a natural for Arky or even UT if Mack Brown retires!

    We've got less than a 50/50 shot at winning. Historically speaking.

    I will be money he ends up at Auburn. I will take him here in heartbeat though. IMO his style of play works better for the PAC 12 than the SEC. Lets hope he's willing to take a little less money to pay off that notion...

    I'd love to have Malzhan in Boulder but the Auburn and Arkansas jobs are open and I'd be surprised if neither school hires him. I think Arky's offer to Les Miles was a way to show Malzhan how much they could offer him plus the salary pool for a coaching staff.

    Malzahn is a local legend here in Oklahoma/Arkansas region for what he did in high school and at the University of Tulsa. If he wants it, I'm all about giving him a shot. The thing that helps us here is that his likely suitors (Auburn and Arky) will probably try to make grand slam hires and go for big names. Especially in the case of Arky, which thinks it's still a consistent top 5 power like it was back in the Nixon years and honestly believes a Jon Gruden would go there.

    I think Nash is right, we all sort of knew Arky's pitch for Miles was posturing. It was probably mutually beneficial posturing: it helped both Miles & Arky. Miles can leverage it into more $ at LSU, and Arky can say to their favorite candidate: we are definitely willing to put money behind a winner.
