The Alligator Army Open Thread, Vol. CXLVI

That was a pretty neat and tidy coaching search, huh?

Fun (?) fact: I didn’t want to write up a hot board for what became the hiring of Billy Napier, because I think those are mostly useless unless the writer has some inside information to impart — like the tidbits about post-Todd Grantham firing defensive coordinator candidates having met with Florida that some reporters dropped into those hot boards a month ago when everything was different — to the masses. If anything, I was going to put together a hot board of hot boards — The Hot Board Matrix — and both point to how predictable this search was likely to be and to the lack of any candidates that could be construed as front-runners other than Napier himself.
