Another non-regional coach, but this time got his bad SEC experience out of the way before working for CSU.

I can't see anywhere that he's been hired by CSU...just that he's a candidate for the job.

Upon re-reading the tweet he’s emerging as a strong candidate. I wouldn’t be surprised by the hire, they love the SEC coaching trees.

Not CSU - but Scalley who was on UNLV’s radar extended with the U. It’s crazy how the U can keep that talent. I’m wondering if he is just holding out for a bigger offer.

Bullet dodge is that Aranda was thrown around at CSU job. I’m going to be fearful this is true until something is confirmed that it isn’t.

Aranda’s LSU salary - $2.5 M
Bobo’s CSU salary - $1.8M

Not saying it can’t happen but.....

Scalley was never going to Utah. He will replace Whitt when the time comes. He is going to be a great coach.

I mean, maybe but that could be like 10/15 years from now. Wikipedia says Whittingham is 60- but that dude has a lot of energy for a 60 year old. There are also a few coaches that coach well beyond the typical "65 year old retirement" age. It's pretty admirable how patient Scalley is. I dont blame him for not taking UNLV.

The annoucment was today, with only 1 P5 job that appears available (BC)... but if FSU had offered Scalley the job, it's hard to believe he'd say no. I couldnt imagine very many people would! If the USC job becomes available next year, I think those boosters might consider Scalley at the top of their list. It might be hard to turn them down. But good on him for being loyal and knowing his worth.

Morgan Scalley taking the UNLV job wouldn’t have precluded him from being the next head coach at Utah.

Not in theory, but going to UNLV is a death sentence for being a Head Coach. Here is the history of UNLV coaches since they became a D1a football program:

Harvey Hyde 1982–1985 8–37–1 .185
Wayne Nunnely 1986–1989 19–25–0 .432
Jim Strong 1990–1993 17–27–0 .386
Jeff Horton 1994–1998 13–44–0 .228
John Robinson 1999–2004 28–42–0 .400
Mike Sanford 2005–2009 16–43–0 .271
Bobby Hauck 2010–2014 15–49–0 .234
Tony Sanchez 2015–2019 22–40–0 .336

So in theory Scalley could go to UNLV and then take over in 5 years from Whittingham. In reality though the odds are he goes to UNLV and does what every coach does who coaches at UNLV and has a bad record with a bunch of losing seasons after coaching at a dead program. With that bad record Utah says thanks but no thanks and hires from within or an up and coming mid major coach like they did when they hired Urban Meyer.

Dave is making around $2.5M as a D C at LSU A few more seasons at $2.5M and he can sit back and watch the grass grow. Being an H C at a D1 school is a burden, especially now. Las Vegas is soon getting the RAIDERS and I'm not optimistic about the fan appeal for a truly deflated college football program.

Seems smart money that Aranda would stay in relative security as a D C in a highly respected and extremely well paying postilion. In college football we are currently watching a very high profile and super toxic game being played by coaches as they jockey for best feathered nest they can fall into.

Dumb move for Aranda. You got to figure he could get a much better job than unlv.

Whit is gong to retire sooner rather than later he's made that very clear to everyone. I'd be shocked if he coached 5 more yrs

At least he's consistent... He can go 4-4 in the MW conference all he wants and I won't mind.
