    Since it looks like Leach is going to get a job this off-season, I was wondering what football coaches, who have done well at some point in their careers, would be considered unhirable, at least by any schools in a BCS conference? Obviously, this would be for coaches who are still young enough to have a few good years left in them...

    Gary Barnett?
    Dan Hawkins?
    Mark Mangino?
    Jim Leavitt?
    Bill Callahan?

    I'd have to say Butch Davis has cut his last compliance corner.

    Think Barnett could work again, if he wanted to . . . but not above the MAC or Sun Belt level, and given his settlement with Colorado . . . why should he?
