USC associate head coach Chad Holbrook is a hot commodity in coaching circles. Tennessee likes him a lot and he reportedly will talk by phone with UT Thursday. He’s also been linked to the opening at Nebraska.
USC head coach Ray Tanner realizes Holbrook’s name will come up anytime there’s a major job opening. Asked after Wednesday’s victory over Auburn about Holbrook discussing a job opening with another school, Tanner made it clear he, and USC, won’t let Holbrook just walk away without an attempt to keep him.
