I can see your point. I hope he is here long term but I really can't believe this is his dream job.

Agreed. Plus how many of us truly were ever in a position where we were in our "dream job"? It doesn't mean we don't try at work otherwise or give it our all while we are there. Doesn't mean you wouldn't take some other job at the first opportunity. Fickell seems like a good guy and a good coach. If he is uber successful and gets a job offer at OSU or something, good for him. It means he had 3 or 4 great seasons here and rebuilt our program for someone else to pick up the pieces.

In a way, I'm almost more worried about losing Mike Bohn. He seems like the real deal as AD.

Possibly but time was limited as he was still coaching when UC announced him as HC. He would have to have been a #1 target for P5 team to get in early

When CLF was hired there was an interview he had and he stated that he talked with his wife several years ago about being a HC and stated UC would be a good destination. So, even tho prolly not dream job, he has only coached and lived in midwest so very nice fit.

SHOCKING NEWS FOR THE AMERICAN! GO HOUSTON

Source: Houston finalizing deal with West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen

The Houston Cougars are finalizing a deal to make Dana Holgorsen their next head coach and are expected to announce his hire as early as Tuesday, a source with knowledge of the search told ESPN.

The West Virginia coach, who is 61-41 with the Mountaineers, will receive a five-year contract worth $20 million, the source said. It would make him the highest-paid coach of a Group of 5 program.

EDITOR'S PICKS

Houston fires Applewhite after two seasons
Houston fired coach Major Applewhite on Sunday after two seasons with the program, the school announced.

SBNation.com first reported the news of Holgorsen's imminent hiring and contract figure.

Holgorsen will return to familiar stomping grounds, where he spent two seasons as the Cougars' offensive coordinator in 2008-09 under then-head coach Kevin Sumlin. Holgorsen will succeed Major Applewhite, whom the Cougars fired Sunday after two-plus seasons with the program.

Houston made Holgorsen its top target in its search but timing dictated it wait until the new year, as his buyout to get out of his contract at West Virginia dropped from $2.5 million to $1 million on Tuesday.

If the TB Buccaneers hire Kelly from ND that is the coaching spot I would fear that CLF would go to
