    My friend just called me and said that he heard Miles contacted Applewhite about a position coaching position. Anyone heard anything about this ?

    I Applewhite went with Robinson? That is the talk over on the UT boards.

    Translation ? I am assuming he would come as QB coach, I don't think Brown is giving him enough credit as a grad asst at UT, their are rumblings that he wants a position coach position and OU and LSU had contacted him ... all just rumors though.

    Applewhite is extremely intelligent and had great mechanics as a player. That could very well translate into success on the coaching level.

    i knew major very well from 7th grade all the way through high school. i would be very surprised if this were true b/c he always HATED LSU...he was a big bama fan. let me reiterate...he HATED LSU. perhaps with age and maturity, he's gotten over it. who knows.

    I hear he's gone to Syracuse anyway, but who cares if he hated LSU. When you are offered a big, consistent paycheck doing what you love to do, you take it. I seriously doubt he would turn down a job as an assistant coach at a school he didn't like in order to remain a grad. assistant for one he liked.

    It's all about money and opportunity and he would have both at LSU. Not sure if the rumor is true or if he does hate LSU like you say but Applewhite is pretty smart and only an idiot would miss the chance to coach at LSU when you have ZERO previous coaching experience and coaching is what you want to do. No matter what his past feelings no way he passes on the chance if offered.
