Brett Venables

He doesn't get mentioned because he's pretty adamantly denied all openings to this point.

He publicly turned down interviews with UGA, Arkansas, and multiple other schools.


Doesn't mean he's going to turn everything down. I personally don't blame him for turning down Arkansas. That program is a mess. But FSU is a different animal compared to most schools. I think the time is right for him to take his career to the next level given the right job, and FSU would be it. And FSU would be crazy not to consider him.

He said in the past that he wouldn't coach in the same conference as Clemson, but if they win again, maybe things change?

He's been pretty open to the media in SC that he has no desire to be a HC. He's one of, if not the highest paid DCs in the nation. We'll see, but I think it's a long shot.

I think Venables is long shot also, but it all depends on timing and how he personally views the FSU job imo.

Kirby Smart turned down a lot of great HC jobs before Georgia opened up. Not saying Venables covets the FSU job like Smart did Georgia, just that Smart was a longtime DC for Saban and highly coveted for years before finally taking the job he wanted instead of just jumping at whatever HC opening.

I like that OC FSU has (Briles). So if they intend on keeping him, a HC with defensive pedigree makes sense imo.

Not to bash FSU, but when are they going to fix their Oline issues?

They have a terrific RB in Cam Akers and they wasted his 3 seasons there b/c the Oline plays has been trash since Winston left.

Regardless of who they hire as a HC they have to invest in a great OL coach. They get too good of athletes in that program to be that bad along the OL for so long.

Makes sense not to want to coach in same conference. I just see Venables as a Kirby Smart like coach who would take the right opening and turn a team around. He’s so talented.

Interested to see the upcoming wave I feel is coming in the NFL hiring college coaches and which ones will jump and which ones will stay. I think the Riley to Dallas rumors are real and think there will be other coaches, such as Swinney, approached about NFL openings. Heard a rumor Rhule would take take jump to NFL.

Cross off Matt Campbell and James Franklin from the list


Iowa State's Matt Campbell has signed an extension with the Cyclones through the 2025 season.

James Franklin is staying at Penn State

Ole Miss and FSU top coach candidate: Mike Norvell


the outlet also reported that Norvell has more interest in the opening at Florida State than the one at Arkansas.

Noles247 has learned that Memphis’ Mike Norvell is a candidate that FSU is confident it can secure. Norvell coaches against Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell who has also been rumored as a candidate for FSU in the AAC Championship.

while reading up on Norvell I ran across this gem:

FSU is last nationally in penalties per game this season, and that was also the case in 2018. Discipline is something that this program has lacked for years, and penalties often closely correlate to a lack of discipline.


buh buh buh Willie got a bad shake guys!

Been there.. I was convinced Jim McElwain was going to be the guy. He even won 10 games in year 1.

You never know. Norvell might be the next Urban Meyer.

Don't know a lot about Mike Norvell so I won't give much of an opinion on it. I've heard he's a solid coach and he's obviously doing good things at Memphis this year. I was listening to Paul Finebaum the other day and he didn't think it would be as big a home run hire as Matt Campbell, Brian Kelly, or James Franklin, but it would still be a good choice.

I hope they at least pursued Rhule. And if Rhule turned down FSU to stay at Baylor, I wouldn’t get that move either. Recruiting at FSU is a dream compared to Baylor.

They may want Memphis to win this game. Would look pretty bad hiring a guy headed to the Papa Johns Bowl.
