Bye-bye, Ty; hello who?

Posted by Jerry Brewer

Well, you actually have six more weeks for the hugs and well-wishes, but I doubt that many people will take the opportunity.

Here's my column on the situation. At its core, the piece was about how Tyrone Willingham turned a generous last chance into a catastrophe -- and how frustrating that turned out to be for people (myself included) who thought he'd do more with the opportunity.

Read Steve Kelley's column, too. If I spoke more from the vantage point of people who thought retaining Willingham last December was a good move, he writes from the perspective of people who wanted him gone.

He was right. I was wrong. But then, I've already written that column.

Moving on, I have a question for you: Would do you want to be the next coach?

You saw the nice list that Bob Condotta put together of potential candidates: Jim Mora (Seahawks coach-in-waiting), Gary Pinkel (Missouri), Pat Hill (Fresno State), Lane Kiffin (ex-Raiders coach), Chris Peterson (Boise State), Will Muschamp (Texas defensive coordinator), Dave Christensen (Missouri offensive coordinator), Jeff Tedford (California) and Mike Leach (Texas Tech).

Two questions, actually:

1. Who on that list do you really like and why?

2. Who else would you like to see included?

I've babbled enough about this situation. This thread is open for your take.
