As was mentioned in the 11W article about ESPN's access to the coaches and players before the Buffalo game, we know that Tom Herman will be a top candidate for many Head Coaching positions next year and has already been contacted by several D1 schools last summer.
Working with the assumption that he does leave at the end of this season for a promotional position as HC, who are the likely candidates to replace him?
Do you think Urban is more concerned with a coach's preferred offense style or recruiting ability? I.e. - would he take someone who is not as inclined towards the Spread vs. someone who is very dynamic and personable?
Just thinking ahead because I'm having a hard time rationalizing how we can keep a gifted coach like Herman long-term.
