Potential replacements for Butch Jones
One day after Butch Jones resigned from the Bearcats to take the Tennessee job, Willie Taggart announced on Saturday he’s leaving Western Kentucky to take over at South Florida.
Here’s who’s left from our original list of five Cincinnati possibilities:
Kerry Coombs, defensive backs coach, Ohio State – He’s probably a longshot candidate because he presumably has no direct relationship with Cincinnati athletic director Whit Babcock, but Coombs is football in Cincinnati. A longtime successful head coach at Colerain High School, he left there to be an assistant at UC and then was a priority hire for Urban Meyer last year at this time. He’d energize the city and the program.
