Today was a massive day in the college football world a year ago. One of the sport's greatest coaches of all-time announced a shocking retirement.
Yes, it was a year ago today that then-Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops announced he was stepping down as the Sooners coach, replaced by Lincoln Riley.
In honor of Stoops' one-year retirement anniversary, let's take a look (again) at some predictions for college football programs' next head coaches.
If your program's head coach abruptly stepped away like Stoops did, who would they try to hire?
Here are our guesses:
Alabama: Dabo Swinney
The Crimson Tide's first call when Nick Saban decides to retire is going to be to Dabo Swiney, who played at Alabama.
Will Swinney leave, though? Some are starting to think he won't.
Clemson: Brent Venables
The Tigers did pretty well the last time they decided to give the head coaching job to an assistant coach. Why not do it again?
Michigan: David Shaw
Jim Harbaugh is probably going to be at Michigan for a while, but when he does decide to leave - for, maybe, the NFL - Shaw would be a perfect hire.
Michigan State: Pat Narduzzi
If Mark Dantonio decides to leave the Spartans, the obvious move would be to just bring back his former top assistant.
Notre Dame: Urban Meyer
Meyer has previously called Notre Dame his "dream" job. There are some who still think he'll end up in South Bend, Ind. someday. The Fighting Irish would try to pluck him if Kelly leaves.
Ohio State: Tom Herman
Herman's not going to leave Texas - probably, anyway - but the Buckeyes first call after Urban Meyer leaves would be to his former star assistant coach.
Penn State: Matt Rhule
Rhule, 42, did a tremendous job at nearby Temple and with a couple of good seasons at Baylor, he could be the guy to eventually replace James Franklin, if he leaves earlier than expected.
Texas - Mike Norvell
Tom Herman is very young and, hopefully, he'll be at Texas for a long time, but if for some reason the Longhorns have to make a change, perhaps Mike Norvell will get the call. He's young, on the rise and should be ready for a big job in a couple of years at the latest.
