New head football coach

I was thinking if we did Hire a new coach who would it be? I don't think we can "afford" Leach but maybe he would come for 1.5 mil. There are a few lower level teams with good coaches and one of the 1st I thought of was Houston's coach Kevin Sumlin. Funny how he's a Purdue alum (linebacker 83-86) and we haven't hired him! He coached here under Tiller and then was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma for 2 Fiesta Bowl teams (06 and 07) He's had a 10 win season as a head coach, pretty much the most prolific passer in NCAA history and Houston is making a strong statement to be apart of the Big 12. Houston extended his contract to 2015 paying him 1.3 million a year. Honestly, he played for Purdue he coached for Purdue and he seems like a great coach. He has had one bad year at Houston b/c Case Keenum the most prolific passer in NCAA history was out for the year. If another big school hires him before we do it will be a major tragedy. Maybe this has been discussed before but I think we should definitely start the rumblings now and maybe this time next year we'll be blowing teams out again. Does anyone know if we looked at him when we hired Hope?
