Tom Jurich has said that he will move quickly to pick his next football coach and that "everybody is in play". He even joked that he had "100 or 200" candidates who have shown interest in replacing former head coach Charlie Strong. While he didn't mention any potential candidates, we've heard a lot of the same names bandied about in the media.
Who do you think Jurich will hire? Will UL focus on candidates with a successful period as a college head coach under their belts? Will Jurich target top level assistants in college football's premier conferences? Do you think the hire will be a defensive or offensive coach? While Strong worked wonders with UL's defense, the school has found great success in the last decade-plus with an offense-first coach.
Below is a poll with some of the most widely mentioned candidates. Though our input won't determine who Jurich hires, I think it would be interesting to see just what the Card Chronicle community is thinking.
