Tech search moves along

Louisiana Tech AD Jim Oakes isn't saying much about his school's search for a new head football coach. But he did say tonight the search was on schedule. And Dec. 15 remains a target date for a hire.

Now, what we learned from talking to others.

Tech has three serious candidates and has talked to all three - LSU assistant Todd Monken, Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and Valdosta State coach Chris Hatcher.

Gannett's Glenn Guilbeau talked to Monken today and he confirmed both an interest in Tech and conversations with the school.

Other sources have since confirmed talks with Muschamp and Hatcher.

As the Alabama search proves, a public courting of a candidate can backfire. So don't expect much coming out of the school.

But expect a coach by next Friday.
