Larry Fedora, Dave Christensen Among Options For Kansas Jayhawks Football Coach

Dave Matter of the Columbia Daily-Tribune recently gave out his choices for who should head to which major college football head coach opening in the country, and he offers up some interesting takes on the Kansas Jayhawks and others. For Turner Gill’s replacement, Matter is realistic about the possibilities and what the team should be looking for, and his list is a nice composite of likely candidates:

“This job needs either a dynamic recruiter or an architect for a spread offense that doesn’t require NFL talent. Mike Leach would have been perfect. Next-best option is Southern Miss’ Larry Fedora. Fedora was an offensive assistant on prolific Oklahoma State and Florida teams and has since delivered four straight winning seasons in Hattiesburg. If not Fedora, Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken might be worth a look, or maybe Wyoming’s Dave Christensen, though Gary Pinkel’s former offensive coordinator would look strange in crimson and blue — but he might be MU’s best hopes of extending the Border War.”
