Rand's list includes these fine coaches.
1. Chris Petersen -- Boise St. head

University Head Coach
4. Mark Farley -- University of Northern Iowa head

Mid-day talker: 5 candidates to replace Brewster -- one reader's opinion - Star Tribune
Tim Brewster is out. That decision -- while one that shouldn't be taken lightly -- was the easier part of the equation ...

Look at the University of Kansas, when they hired Terry Allen from UNI in 1997. Jumping from FCS to FBS is a tall step from FCS to a BCS school. Jerry Kill would be a better choice than Mark Farley. By the way, Farley went with Allen to KU, before returning to UNI to replace Allen's unsuccessful successor. Kill was at Southern Illinois, a FCS school, a couple of years ago and has done a nice job at Northern Illinois the past two and half years.

Who sees Boise State coach Chris Petersen at Minnesota next season?

Leslie Frazier does have prior head coaching experience at the college level, as well a brief stint at Illinois as an assistant coach. Does the University of Minnesota want to go with a defensive minded coach?
