I'm piggybacking on leodis' list of the 10 coaches from his recent poll. Those listed coaches are:

Mickey Joseph// Bill O'Brien// Dave Aranda// Urban Meyer
Lane Kiffin// Coach not listed// Coach Klieman
Lance Leipold// Mike Gundy// Ty Whittingham

Questions, among others, you can ask yourself about each of these coaches:

1. If offered, will he take the NU job?
2. If hired, your level of confidence in his hiring or bringing in great Coordinators, including great recruiting coaches?
3. Do you feel he will implement an offensive/defensive scheme that will succeed in the Big Ten?
4. Are you concerned this coach may leave early for the NFL or another college job that opens?
5. Is this a coach that you feel might stay at NU for 10 years or more?
6. Is this a coach who may be taking the job for money?
7. Do you feel this coach has a history or is capable of recruiting on a national basis?
8. Do you think this coach has enough experience to take on the NU HC job?
9. What is the one thing that is a deal-breaker for not hiring this coach?
10. After the hire, what do you think the overall acceptance level of the fans would be?

You might answer most of these questions with Yes or No and have your answer.

Until the HC is named, this is just another way of looking at it.

I'd take the one that has Coach for his first name. How can you go wrong??
