Breaking:Atlanta Head Coach Bill Madison hired by NTBL’s New York Wildcats

University of Atlanta Head Coach Bill Madison will be the next head coach of the New York Wildcats of the NTBL. Longtime head coach James Jackson announced his retirement after being diagnosed with prostate cancer suddenly last week. Atlanta Offensive Coordinator Chris Jackson will be the interim head coach. Top candidates for the job are likely to include Arkansas Offensive Coordinator Hall Hucks (the former Atlanta Offensive Coordinator and Atlanta alum) and Texas Defensive Coordinator Scott Perriman.

What Arkansas’s Coaching Search might look like

Because longtime head coach Will Petrino is stepping down from the position, the hogs need a new coach. Petrino is remaining as the throwball director and taking full charge of the coaching search.

Favorite to land job

Fred Jackson,Head Coach,Texas Longhorns
A national championship is the only thing that will keep Jackson away from his alma mater in 2020. The former Razorback offensive coordinator would be absolutely adored in Fayetteville and rightfully so. Texas has a great shot at the national championship but Jackson is still the odds on favorite to be the head man in Fayetteville next season.

Other Possibilities

Hall Hucks, Offensive Coordinator, Arkansas Razorbacks
The only two places the aging coach would take the leadership position are Arkansas and Atlanta (where he graduated and where he formerly coached). I don’t see this happening but there’s always a chance.

AJ Justice, Head Coach, Florida Atlantic Owls
The former defensive coordinator for the Razorbacks has done wonders in his first season on the beaches. Justice would likely be the second option after Jackson because of his high tempo philosophy and familiarity with the recruiting area.

Hunter Mack, Head Coach, Iowa Hawkeyes
The former Missouri defensive coordinator is making his name known in a tough Big Ten. Mack brings a tough defensive philosophy and a hurry-up offense style to the game. But likely he is the front under for the potential Alabama job opening.

Chris Plemons, Defensive Coordinator, Arkansas Razorbacks
The former JUCO Coach is now being looked at for many Power 8 jobs including the potential Alabama opening as well as open jobs in Huff College and St. Mary’s. Plemons will likely leave the hogs on the first day of the off-season if he’s offered a good deal with a team to become their next head coach.
