Our next coach will be Colorado State's Jim McElwain (maybe)

The grapevine brought some interesting information to me today via someone who plays for WKU.

Jim McElwain got his D-1A coaching start as an assistant to John L. Smith and more recently served as the Alabama coordinator for three years under Nick Saban (2008-11). He took CSU to an 8-6 record in his second season this year, which is impressive since the previous three years before his arrival had a combined record of 9-27. While we were all fretting about keeping Charlie Strong last week, Tom Jurich was not stranded in Colorado. His vacation spot was a three hour drive from the CSU campus. Tom knew what was going on and interviewed Jim McElwain. Given his track record where he's been and his ties to the area, this would be a good hire.

Any thoughts, trolling, or rumors are welcome.
