C-USA Football: UAB & Memphis looking for new coaches

Two Conference USA schools are looking for new head football coaches. Yesterday Memphis fired Larry Porter after he amassed a 3-21 record in two seasons with the Tigers. UAB also announced that Neal Callaway would not be back next season. In five seasons with the Blazers Callaway only won 18 games while racking up 42 losses.

In terms of potential replacements, the Memphis Commercial Appeal speculates that the Tigers could go after Arkansas State head coach Hugh Freeze or former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach. As for UAB, says the Blazers will attempt to bring in a young coordinator or head coach from an FCS school. This article suggest that Houston offensive coordinator Jason Phillips and George Southern head coach Jeff Monken are potential candidates.
