With Art Briles stepping down at Houston to become the new head coach for Baylor (seriously, Art? Baylor? That's where coaches go to die...), apparently our own Major Applewhite is a strong candidate to replace him. The Huntsville Times reports that he has been contacted by Houston, but nothing further. Personally, I think that's kind of crazy. Applewhite has all the upside and potential of a young OC, but I still think he has a lot to learn (and I think this season lends some creedence to that) about being a play caller at a big time program. And if he isn't quite there yet as an assistant, what makes Houston think he's ready to be a head coach? If he leaves to take the Houston job, I'll wish him the best of luck, but I think he'd be better off staying put and learning for a few more years.
