So if rumors are to be believed, it sounds like it's down to Mike Locksley or Walt Bell to be FSU's next OC. Both have potential downsides for UM....Bell would obviously mean the Terps have to replace their OC at a pretty late stage of the game (lucky for the early recruit singing period), and Locksley would give FSU a stronger local presence for recruiting.
Regarding Bell....while FSU would certainly be an upgrade to UM in terms of competitiveness and prestige (and probably money), as things stand right now I'm not so sure it is the more appealing job head-to-head. Willie Taggart has always called his own plays as a head coach, and I would assume he intends to do so at FSU, and so working under him you are almost relegated to a co-OC role. Whereas at UM, under a HC whose entire history is on defense, I'd expect the OC has about as much control over the offense as you can have, with not much more than very general direction from Durkin. That said, MD might have to show Bell a new contract if they want to keep him, which is what this may all be about anyway.
