Don't forget Dennis Franchione at K-State

Connect the dots. Dennis Franchione will be strongly considered as the new Kansas State coach.

Kansas State athletic director Bob Krause said Wednesday he would have a new coach hired by the end of the season, and that he preferred a head coach. There's not too many sitting head coaches who are going to leave their jobs in the middle of the season to take Kansas State.

That kind of narrows the field to people like Franchione. The former TCU, Alabama and Texas A&M coach is currently a college football analyst on ESPN radio. It is known he is interested in replacing Ron Prince who was fired Wednesday effective at the end of the season.

Kansas State was Franchione's first college coaching job and his first child was born in Manhattan, Kan. He is a native Kansan who attended Pittsburg (Kan.) State. It is known he is preferred my hoardes of K-State fans although he has not yet been contacted formally by the school.

He has been out of work less than a year since resigning at Texas A&M. That was after the unfortunate newsletter scandal.

The 56-year-old Franchione is 107-81 in 16 years as a I-A coach.

Not EVERYTHING is race driven. Performance drives a lot of things, especially in this situation. In my opinion when someone throws race into an issue it makes them as much of if not more of a racist. People in glass houses.

Good lord I hope you're not serious.  Lived throughout the midwest for 30 years and Kansas is far from being anywhere near racist.  Wow

I laughed at this.  Because in fact, outside of Dixie, Kansas is easily the most racist state in the union.

Manhattan especially is a very racist, conservative stronghold.

  Hey Dodd, i can't wait for your K-St. is racist article. Firing a minority coach after 2 1/2 years is racist!  With the way you raked Notre Dame over the coals for firing Ty Willie after 3 years, i bet K-St. is really going to take a beating. I can't wait. I bet you are working on this article as we speak.  A white coach would have been given more time. Shame on K-St.! A racist university! Racism is alive and well in Manhattan.

   I am going to keep checking this site until i see your racism article. Hurry up Dodd, what is taking soo long? Are you going to give K-St. a pass?  Hmmm.....

If he is as "bad" at KSU as he was at Bama, the Big XII needs to worry.  He had one of the best teams in the SEC the year before he left, and he did it with a roster ravaged by NCAA sanctions.   And don't get to high on your Jayhawks...as soon as Mangino is confronted by a flight of stairs he'll be dead and KU will be hiring Prince.
