But not FOX10 in the Mobile - Pensacola - Ft. Walton Beach area. No, sir. They're still reporting that Muschamp will be hired by Auburn as soon as today.
FOX10 News sources have told us Auburn will likely name Will Muschamp its new head coach sometime Friday. Muschamp was Auburn's defensive coordinator two years ago. WVUE in New Orleans first reported Muschamp would likely be the Tigers new coach.
Now, call me crazy, but why are these sources talking exclusively to FOX10? Mobile is a pretty big market, but I would have to think leaking information like this would pan out better for a source if it was, oh, anyone other than a local affiliate.
Also, again, Auburn is a great school and a top flight program and Muschamp has coached there ... but he's said he's not ready to become a head coach yet and, no offense to the departed Tommy Tuberville, but Texas is a little more primed for success than Auburn right now.
