Former Auburn Heisman Trophy winner Pat Sullivan was one of two finalist interviewed again yesterday for the Middle Tennessee State head coaching job. Unfortunately for Sullivan, the job went to South Carolina assistant coach Rick Stockstill.
But all is not lost for Sullivan. Arkansas coach Houston Nutt appears interested in hiring him as the Razorbacks quarterback coach. This week, Nutt hired unknown high school coach Gus Malzahn as its new offensive coordinator.
There is no word on whether Sullivan is interested in the position. He currently serves as offensive coordinator at UAB and also served stints as head coach at TCU and offensive assistant at Auburn.
Current Tigers running back coach Eddie Gran was also interviewed by Middle Tennessee State and was thought to be the leading candidate for a while.
Offensive Coordinator Al Borges remains under consideration for the coaching job at San Diego State.
