Guz Malzahn To Ole Miss, Skip Holtz To UNC? Interest High, According To Report

The two biggest coaching positions available, presuming Urban Meyer to Ohio State, are the Mississippi Rebels and the North Carolina Tar Heels. Well, UNC isn't open yet, but a new athletic director isn't going to hang on to an interim coach. Auburn Tigers assistant had been hotly rumored to Carolina, but wait:

Charles Robinson@CharlesRobinson Talked w/ heavy hitter in coach representation. Says Gus Malzahn is favoring Ole Miss, & UNC is locking onto Skip Holtz.    

That's Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports fame, so we'll go ahead and peg Malzahn and South Florida Bulls coach Holtz as the favorites at those positions. Doesn't mean they'll end up with those jobs, but it is interesting.

Malzahn has been the favored acquisition of Ole Miss fans since before Houston Nutt was fired. He'd been loosely attached to the UNC job, but Ole Miss may be willing to pay more. Houston Nutt was making slightly more than Butch Davis was, but Malzahn's price tag (he reportedly turned down a $3 million-per-year offer from Vanderbilt) could've put him out of the reach of the Heels' football budget. Openly speculating all over the place.
