HAHA! Jeff Fisher and the reason behind it makes me laugh the most. Then Marshal says Stoops isnt out of it when asked. Says no one is really out of it. Why on earth do they believe all these coaches just want to drop their current job and go take the barn one. It is laughable journalism.
Check out the hottest candidates to replace Gene Chizik as Auburns head football coach.

I didn't see Shawn Watson mentioned on that list.
The committee, "which is a real committee" according to Jacobs, will have their pick of head coaches. Any coach would love to be part of the Auburn Family (g).
Also, they forgot to mention that Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick are even money to come to Auburn. In fact, they might both come and one be the HC and the other be a coordinator (g).

I think Jim and John Harbaugh have decided to leave the 49ers and Ravens to come be Co-Head Coach, in keeping with the 'family' theme...
It will be Gus. They wound be crazy not to go hard after Franklin and Strong. Well maybe stupid and we are ready know they are that.
Jeff Fisher is a USC grad. Former player. Has coached in the Show for 30 years. Played in the show. Makes 7mill a year and has total control of football operations and he's gonna throw that all away to come to Auburn Alabama.
I love it.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
Just too funny!
... Ummmm... WOW, they have some... (Cough, Cough)... High expectations in Auburn given the current state of affairs...
Reminds me of Elmer Fudd asking a Super Model for a date, not happening!!!
ESPN Insider has a much more realistic big board on the coaching search....Travis Haney Blog has...
Strong - Louisville
Hudspeth - Louisiana Laff.
Sonny Dykes - Louisiana Tech
Chad Morris - Clemson OC
Much more realistic names even though you know the boogs are laughing at this list. How could they not....there fed this crap by their writers and some buy it hook line and sinker. Also, its not the names on this list either so much as its the types of names. That seems much more likely and why some think Patrino increased his chances of getting the job 10fold just a few days ago when the NCAA stuff came to light.
Another dose of reality will be fun from our point of view. Of course, they will just blame the ones hiring for not doing their job instead of realizing its that place/situation.
Looks like a fairly impressive list, I wonder what it will look like when they wake up from their fantasy dream.

And this is why their fans have no grasp on reality. Their media goes full retard everytime they get behind the keyboard.
This list is a joke. Only Malzahn, Strong, and Franklin are legit possibilities. With NCAA in town, you can forget about any top shelf guys.. The Fisher one is downright hilarious. Boy, are these guys in for a disappointment.
They need to hire Danny Sheridan so he goes to the top of their list. That way, they can put an end to all this talk about a bag man. It's the fambly way.
What about Jim Tressel? He knows how to "play by the rules" and that was a point of emphasis for Jacobs.
Also, with all of his experience with tattoos, he would help them hold on to Rueban Foster.
Auburn has a lot of problems but the biggest problem is (though they can write a good size check) they reside in the state of Alabama, are not Alabama, and Nick Saban coaches Alabama.
They have yet to hit rock bottom.
Franklin will stay put
Tressel has a 5 year show cause by the NCAA. He's untouchable.
We heard all this before they hired CGC, even the whole "money isn't an issue" quote by JJ
James Franklin would probably be the best coach in AU history. I've been on this guys bandwagon since about 1/2 way through last season. I wouldn't have any problem with him coaching here after CNS puts in another 25 years or so (g).
No way they hire the guy from LaTech and risk being referred to as "the Dykes". Not going to happen.
James "Jim" Franklin
Jim Mora, Jr.
id bet chad morriss, malzahn, dykes and fedora are the most likely of any on that list...none will strike dear in the sec's eyes
Isn't Morriss a Malzahn protege? Would that have any impact.
I don't see dykes due to tony Franklin being his OC. May sound ridiculous but aubs hate admitting they were wrong.
Chad Morris will be the man!
For the life of me, why the hell would they think that Smart would leave Bama for Auburn? I am completely dumbfounded this. Can someone explain this to me?
Why do horses have horseshoes? Do they have horse socks? Is anybody listening to me?
