Given that these hires all took place last year, it's way too early to know how they will all turn out. Thumbs up for helping to land Brian Kelly at Notre Dame (but was that really so difficult?). An unknown thumbs up/down: the hiring of Derek Dooley at Tennessee. There are a lot of mixed opinions on that one still.

In the end, the folks at PES will simply compile a list of candidates that the 13-member committee will ultimately select from. Chancellor Randy will ultimately make the final call.
