Episode 091: Bob Davie, Penn State, coaching hot seats and more
- Updated: November 17, 2011
Stephen Prather from Coaches By The Numbers
As we get closer to the end of the regular season the 2011 coaching carousel is getting greased up for another wild off-season ride.
New Mexico already found their guy in Bob Davie, who replaces Mike Locksley, but the question is whether or not it is a good fit.
Also, with all of the turmoil up in State College, Pennsylvania one of the major story lines in the college football coaching world is just where exactly Penn State goes from here. Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has been named the interim head coach by the administration in the wake of a series of unfortunate events that forced Joe Paterno out the door rather abruptly. Unfortunately for Bradley, a Penn State lifer in so many ways, his time on the Penn State sidelines looks to be drawing to a close as it is expected that Penn State will continue to clean house in and around the program.
So who’s the next guy in line? Is it Urban Meyer? Al Golden? Greg Schiano?
To help me discuss these topics with a little more insight than I can shed I invited Stephen Prather form Coaches By The Numbers to the podcast. Prather and I discuss Davie’s position in New Mexico and a number of candidates Penn State may or may not consider. As a tease, I think outside the box and drop a name nobody has mentioned yet (Georgia’s Mark Richt). Feel free to listen to my logic and Prather’s responses, then let me know what you think in the comments section below (or on Twitter).
We also take a look at some of the highs and lows in the coaching ranks as we are just a few weeks form the conclusion of the season. Who is on their way out and who deserves some worthy recognition for a job well done this season?

Mr. Prather describes Georgia Fans as "the most fickle" in the country. Wow, I had no idea that 10 straight years of sell-outs, being 2nd in revenue generated by a football program, and consistent top 5 finish in merchandising sales was considered "fickle". Maybe our thoughts on a new head coach are fickle but our support for the program is not.
