DOOLEY IN THE PICTURE?: We have unconfirmed reports that Derek Dooley, son of Vince, is interviewing with athletic Director Jay Jacobs today. That situation is difficult to confirm because Dooley is head coach and athletic director at Louisiana Tech.
He answers to the president, Dan Reneau. I'm aiming to correspond with him as soon as possible.
UPDATE: An LTU publicist, asked about the situation, said a statement Dooley released last week "still stands true." The statement says Dooley has not been contacted or interviewed in connection with another job.
HOKE REVERSES COURSE: Remember a few days ago when Ball State coach Brady Hoke said he hadn't been contacted by Auburn? Looks like that stance has changed. The (Muncie, Ind.) Star-Press, a fellow Gannett paper citing unnamed sources, reported today that BSU officials are expecting Hoke to meet with Jacobs today.
Of note: Hoke is schedule to appear in Mobile tomorrow for a GMAC Bowl event.
