* Now that Les Miles has said that he is not a candidate as Michigan head coach, Michigan continues to look at several coaches. Those include Rutgers coach Greg Schiano, Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, California coach Jeff Tedford and Missouri coach Gary Pinkel.
* Another head coaching vacancy is apparently ready to happen. Karl Dorrell of UCLA is expected to be out as early as today. Possible candidates for the UCLA job are Boise State coach Chris Petersen,Texas Tech coach Mike Leach and former NFL coach Steve Mariucci.
* As was expected,Bo Pelini is the new coach at Nebraska. Pelini was the defensive coordinator at LSU for the last three years. "We need a head coach with strong defensive credentials and great leadership," interim athletic director Tom Osborne said. "We were also looking for someone who can inspire confidence and get players to play with great effort. "And, of course, we also wanted our new head coach to understand our traditions, including the importance of our walk-on program and the importance of football in this state."
