    Joe trying to stick it to us

    But since he’s been out west a while it makes sense for Oregon to reach out

    I thought I'd heard that Joe was going somewhere else. Maybe not.

    Arnett ain't leaving for Oregon, unless it's to be a head coach . His wife loves the south.

    I saw him potentially linked to Bama and Michigan. Doubt seriously Bama, but who knows on Michigan.

    He might do well at Vanderbilt. But they've already hired somebody.

    Has Bama hired an OC since Sarkisian went to Texas? Bama might be a good place for him as an OC.

    Major difference between a DC and the head coach going on interviews but you already know that.

    I thought Bama was looking at Bill O'Brien? At any rate they won't hire someone until after the game tonight.

    DC interviewing for a HC job is certainly different. DC interviewing for DC seems equal to HC interviewing for HC to me.

    It's not that different when it isn't interviewing for a head coach position. I don't have a problem with a coordinator interviewing, but interviewing after one year if it's not a blue blood is annoying. If it's Bama, UF, UGA, Texas, Clemson, OSU, etc. I get it. I don't like it, but I get it. They are blue bloods and give you a legitimate shot at a national title. Even though they have Phil Knight, Oregon is not quite on that level in my mind but I can get why it would be appealing if he's a west coast guy at heart and wants to get back out there.

    On the flipside, I think we will only offer two year contracts, and I think most schools will offer longer, so if that's the case, we can't really complain about coordinators not being committed for longer. It's just so hard to have continuity when coordinators are leaving every 2 years, much less after one year.

    The difference is one is much easier to replace and has much less impact on your program than the other.

    Good point on length of contracts

    Yeah, because our DC has the keys to the program and is making $4 mil a year.

    I re read that. I didn't mean to sound like an ass.

    He is interviewing at Oregon.

    It doesnt sound like he has a 2MM buyout as some people are trying to say if he is off interviewing with other schools.
    Just out here kicking rocks

    It sounds like Arnett wants out but only for the right price. Seems very similar to Mullen. I believe he has been interviewing with many teams
