Les Miles- Current LSU coach, former Michigan player and assistant coach under Bo. Here is the EDSBS rundown of Miles' year. He may not get along with Pizza honcho Dave Brandon, however...

Brady Hoke- Another former Michigan assistant coach. He has done well in his stops at Ball State and San Diego State, but is that enough of a track record? He also looks like Jeff Garlin from Curb Your Enthusiasm...
Jon Gruden-Super Bowl Winner who recently met with Dave Brandon. He would probably cost a couple of draft picks, but the Super Bowl Ring could work better than Snake Oil. He also has movie star looks...
Gary Patterson-He has turned TCU into a National power, but has turned down offers from BCS conference teams before, and now has TCU headed to the Big East which, hold on let me check......Yep, is still a BCS conference. He doesn't have many funny pictures, which excludes him in my book, but he does share a name with an illustrator with an unhealthy obsession with weiner dogs. I would like him, but its a longshot at best.
Chris Peterson-Excelling at Boise State, but doesn't seem inclined to leave his small pond. He also shares a name with another Michigan employee, which could lead to problems with payroll and health care benefits. I also don't see the fan base (i.e. donors) giving the "O.K." to change the color of the playing surface. I also have concerns about his defensive skills, as he couldn't stop Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount from punching his way through the defense....

If I had to put percentages on it, I would go....
I am holding out hope that Harbaugh pulls an extended practical joke on us all, or Urban Meyer has a change of heart, and gets the urge to coach again.
Either way, I hope this is cleared up soon, and by soon I mean Monday or Tuesday. Michigan is already losing recruits at an alarming rate, and one bad class can mean no bowl game down the road.
