    SoCon shakeups

    Two teams will have new head coaches, Furman and UTC. WCU has a new defensive coordinator, John Wily. Oddly enough, Mercer's Bobby Lamb is on at least one published list for the UTC job. It sure looks like the SoCon is headed for another shakeup year in 2017!

    I have no inside information, but I'd be floored if CBL left Mercer for UTC.

    That was one of the most surprising names on the list. I'd be pretty shocked if there were even discussions there. It seems odd for both sides.

    Re: SoCon shakeups

    SI writer is reporting that Furman is going to name Des Kitchings head coach.

    No idea who the writer is, or who the source is, but take it for what it is worth.
    FU all the time.

    Re: SoCon shakeups

    Does UTC have anybody internal that would be considered or are they all going with Huesman?

    Jeff Durden our OC and Rusty Wright our LB coach are interviewing today. IMO - Durden is a legitimate candidate, and has also interviewed for the Lafayette HC job, and will follow Huesman to Richmond if he doesn't get either job. He also interviewed for the VMI HC job a year or two ago.

    Rusty Wright - to me, would be a hard sell going from one of our position coaches to the HC job. He is a "Chattanooga" guy though. Rusty has accepted the LB coaching job at Georgia State if he doesn't get the HC job and will not follow Huesman to Richmond.

    Per sources - Huesman will be taking 4-5 assistants with him. I am not sure who though, but I assume DC Bratherite(sp) is a given.

    My understanding is that Jeff Durden (Offensive Co) and Rusty Wright (Linebacker Coach) were being interviewed today.

    Re: SoCon shakeups

    Furman scuttlbut appears to suggest that Kitchings verbally accepted the position and then backed out this morning.

    My guess is NC State showed up with some dead presidents.
