That would make me the happiest.
1) Bobby Petrino - Saban hates him and he is now a shadow of his former overrated self.
2) Gus Malzahn - Unproven coach who has an offensive philosophy that has unfixable fundamental flaws and has no idea how much discipline means to a program.
3) Jimbo Fisher - Can't grasp the difference between being a coordinator and head coach. It's why his teams choke consistently.
I hope for any of those three.
In what way is petrino over rated? A risky hire maybe but I don't question his ability to coach football. He the best available IMO.

Saban is 4-0 against that little punk, with an average margin of victory of almost 23 points per game. And in three of those years, Arkansas had better QBs than anyone Auburn's had in 10 years with the lone exception of the one season they bought Newton.
Saban is so deep into Petrino's head at this point that he's laying eggs in it. Petrino will also have to rehab his image, which means he won't be the sniveling little snot that's only consumed with winning. He'll lose his edge and be processed in 3-4 years.
I say bring him on.

Yep...& no sight of a true qb on AU's campus at the moment either!
If BP is hired, unless he gets some good recruiting guys on staff recruiting will get easier. BP is not a good recruiter.
We do not want Petrino at Auburn.
Sure he is not a "great" recruiter, but look what he did with the talent he had at Arky. He would have better talent at Auburn, and I don't want to see what he could do with it. His system has produced BCS teams at both Louisville and Arkansas.
If you don't think Petrino is an elite coach, then you are using blinders because he is currently the name being mentioned with Auburn.

I don't have blinders on. I hope he is their coach. I'll tell you this with 100% certainty. Saban loathes him IRL and has no respect for him.
