A few more coaching notes

A couple more notes before calling it a night:
— Clemson, one of the other major jobs with an opening, made a coaching hire today, giving the job to interim coach Dabo Swinney. Other than potentially Mike Leach and maybe Gary Patterson, Clemson and UW didn’t appear to be trading in the same coaching prospects so hard to tell if this will impact UW’s search any. Patterson apparently said no to UW last week with some thought he was more interested in Clemson and Tennessee, each now filled, so maybe you could wonder if he’d be more amenable to UW now if the Huskies were still interested.
— Here’s a report from The Fresno Bee on what Pat Hill said to reporters there tonight. It’s likely Hill won’t want this to drag out real long with people in Fresno — a city that revolves around Bulldogs athletics, and specifically football — now beginning to speculate about his future.
— A few of you have asked about Buffalo coach Turner Gill, so I asked someone back whether there had been any talk that Gill was a candidate for this job. The word I received is that as of Sunday, Gill had not been contacted by UW and it was not expected that he would be.
