Tulsa Head Coach Search: Latest News and Rumors on Position

The Tulsa football program fired head coach Bill Blankenship following a 2-10 season and are searching for the next leader. Several candidates for the position have already been announced with two interesting names at the top of the list.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports noted two coaches reportedly being considered for the position:

Frost, who has carved out a huge role with Oregon, jumps out as an intriguing candidate. His offense has the Ducks in the College Football Playoff led by Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota.    

Along with Frost, Tulsa is also reportedly eyeing Utah State coach Matt Wells. Wells has led the Aggies to a 9-4 record this year but was recently throttled by Boise State, 50-19, to close the season.

He recently spoke about his thoughts on other job opportunities, per Scott Garrard of 97.5 The Zone:

Both coaches bring a wealth of experience at the college level, but Wells has two years of success as a head coach. For a Tulsa team that hasn't reached a bowl since 2012, the Golden Hurricane need a coach with the pedigree to win right away.

It should be interesting to see whom the program ultimately decides on, but it can't go wrong with either of these initial options. Due to their recent success, either Frost or Wells might turn the tide for the Golden Hurricane.
