I can't say for certain whether any of these sitting college head coaches would "accept the challenge," because they're pretty happy where they are, but Long should at least make a run at Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen and Art Briles. If Tommy Tuberville finally has a good season at Texas Tech he could work his way into the mix, as could native son Gus Malzahn if he has a great first season at Arkansas State.

Stewart Mandel's mailbag response to a question about Arkansas's coaching search, or at least part of it I understand that this kind of speculation is natural given that Briles has been successful at Baylor and we are not yet considered as high on the totem pole as we would like, but I can pretty much guarantee you that he's not leaving for Arkansas. Now or ever.
