Butch Davis to FAU?
Now that North Carolina has fired Davis, is he a candidate for the FAU job? I was thinking the job goes to Randy Shannon when Schnellenberger leaves this fall. Now I think it would be a good move for FAU.

Davis as coach and Shannon as Defensive Coordinator? Does Shannon have a clause in his contract that would make him forfeit the remaining money owed to him by UM by signing with FAU or FIU?

RE: Butch Davis to FAU?
No clue to be honest.

I truly think Howard will resign this year and go out playing in the stadium he got built.

As to a new head coach I dont really know. FAU kind of needs a "splash" higher, and Leach, Shannon, or Davis would qualify for that. It is more likely that FAU would try to get a high profile AQ school OC to take his first coaching gig.

There are administrative ties to Leach thru our AD, Shannon and Butch Davis ties to him as well. The question will be whether or not they take less money to try and get back in the saddle again so to speak.

I think well hear somehting sometime in Nov, just before recuriting season.

I can't see it. Davis actually has a lot stronger ties to FIU then anyone at FAU. I believe he took their AD, Pete Garcia to Cleveland with him when he was the Browns coach. I could see Davis possibly being a candidate for FIU if Cristobal leaves, but I would think that he is done with NCAA football...at least for a while. He'll probably end up on the staff of an NFL team at some point.

Only unless FAU wants to be on probation in a few years. Don't like Davis, never have. When North Carolina hired him I told a friend of mine to watch how long it takes them to be in hot water.

Why do schools keep hiring these coaches who consistently get in trouble....looking at you Davis, Kiffen, and Calipari (sorry to bring basketball in a football thread).

For all we know, Davis could go under a show cause by the time the NCAA finishes with UNC, until that is resolved he's too radioactive for anyone to touch.

Probably right, although FAU does have a history of taking in damaged goods. But it usually after a cool down and Davis is a little to hot right now.

Matt Doherty, Mike Jarvis, and Howard Schnellenberger were all "damaged" goods when FAU took em in. 2 of those have worked out while Robo Doh bailed and hasnt done much at SMU.

There's a big difference between "damaged goods" and someone under show cause sanctions.

Big difference between investigation ongoing and investigation closed as well.

I would expect Butch Davis to resurface in the NFL perhaps even as an assistant or maybe even a head coach in the UFL before he does in the college game.

FAU should go ahead and suggest to Schnelly that now that the stadium is built, this should be his last season. That way they can hire Leach before some other school finally does it. Plus he's living in Key West, so he'd probably take the FAU job to stay in South Florida.

I agree.

I agree.

More importantly, FAU seems to agree. Schnelly's contract is up after this year, and both Coach and the AD have agreed not to talk about an extension until after they see what happens this season. The only likely way Coach returns to the sidelines would be if FAU has a suprise big year. If they win 6-8 games and get to a bowl game I could see him returning for another year or two, but it would seem to be a longshot. More then likely, Howard will get to coach in his new stadium and then move into more of a fundraising role with the program.
