We're going to find out how desirable of a job it is. Tennessee is a

program that thought they had a seat at the high table, but they found out quickly that folks didn't want to be in Fulmer's shadow in a place where fan and booster expectations were set in stone 20 years ago. Nebraska was not going to hire anyone with the resume of Frost, and I think part of why he's still there is because the smarter boosters realize they aren't a destination school anymore to hire the next guy. Miami still thinks its 2001, not 2021.

I agree you can win the ACC from Cow Town, but IMO that means Clemson and Florida State both being down, and NC State and Louisville continuing to underperform their potential. (For the record, I don't think Clemson stays down very long). In other words, a Top 15 or better team should win the Coastal most years, but I also think most years there will be a Top 10 or better team waiting in the other division.

It will be interesting to see who shows interest, who denies interest, and who ends up hired. I didn't think pulling the guy from Memphis was necessarily a great show of program desirability 6 years ago. I'd put Cow Town in that Top 30-35 range, good enough to nab a G5 HC who has a magical season or two, but they're not likely poaching another P5 coach unless there's some idiosyncratic situation like the one Shane is in, or it's a stepping-stone school like Dook, Wake, Kansas, Vandy, Illinois, Indiana, etc.
