Moving on

Louisiana Tech is not wasting any time looking for a new head football coach.

I talked to Tech athletic director Jim Oakes tonight and he said he hopes to have a coach hired by Dec. 15.

That's pretty quick - 11 days after the firing of Jack Bicknell. But this is recruiting season and every day counts.

If Tech can find the right guy in 11 days, then that will be quite a coup. As it is, recruiting could be harmed the longer the Bulldogs are without a head coach.

Still, Tech has some company in the market. Among those still without a coach are Alabama, Arizona State and Miami.

I realize Jim Oakes is the new exclusive punching bag of Tech fans now that Bicknell is gone, however, Oakes is doing this correctly as it sounds as if he already has his hire ready to go before pulling the trigger on Bicknell.

That's how you fire/hire in college football.
