DETROITFirst, realistic options must be considered. Can Texas afford to wait on Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher or Auburn’s Gus Malzahn if those two are interested? Possibly, since recruiting is dead until Jan. 15.

But is there interest in Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio for the job of outgoing head coach Mack Brown who resigned on Saturday.

But that’s a long wait to potentially miss out on other coaches. Also, NFL folks such as Mike Tomlin or Jim Harbaugh — I just don’t see it. David Shaw, Art Briles — there’s a chance they are lifers where they are (maybe that’s naïve, but certainly possible).

Do you think Dantonio’s on the short list? Do you think he’d leave the program at Michigan State to head to a warmer climate?
