Colorado State coach Jim McElwain, the former Alabama offensive coordinator, and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels are also believed to be candidates. …

Auburn had some defensive issues down the stretch and fired coordinator Ellis Johnson after the Tigers surrendered 55 points in the Iron Bowl. Who’s next at Auburn?

Of course Will Muschamp’s name comes to mind. It had already been tossed about for a Texas A&M job that’s been open longer. Maybe there’s Gus Malzahn-Kevin Sumlin steel cage match coming up to see who gets to hire Muschamp. More on the Aggies here.

Muschamp’s name had been mentioned in connection with a possible defensive coordinator position at South Carolina around mid-season, but Steve Spurrier told The State newspaper on Monday that he did not plan any staff firings at this time. …
