New post for the afternoon.

US PRESSWIRE

Since the other post from this morning is getting a bit long with comments, I'll go ahead and post what I have in terms of links this afternoon. Also, here's what we know from today:

  • Chris Thomsen is the interim head coach for the bowl game.
  • At Saturday's press conference, the entire defensive staff said that they would help out with the bowl game, so I assume that DC Art Kaufman will coach the defense.
  • Also announced today, Sonny Cumbie would call plays for the offense and coach quarterbacks.
  • Former OC Neal Brown officially resigned today and took the job at Kentucky, which is why Cumbie is calling plays.
  • Finally, RRS.com is apparently reporting that the coaching search is down to TAMU OC Kliff Kingsbury and Clemson OC Chad Morris. I don't have a subscription, but Kingsbury and Morris' photos are on their front page.

A lot happened today.
