Kyle Whittingham Also An Arizona State Coaching Candidate, According To Reports

Utah Utes head coach Kyle Whittingham is apparently the next item up for bid. After being connected to the Penn St. Nittany Lions job, he's now also reportedly a target of the Arizona St. Sun Devilsaccording to both Fox Sports Arizona and the Arizona Republic

Those are the only major jobs left vacant at the moment. The ASU gig would seem to be something of a lateral move, though, now that both are Pac-12 schools. This year, Utah paid Whittingham more money than ASU paid Dennis Erickson.

Whittingham has coached with the Utes since 1994, since 2005 as head coach. He's piloted Utah to a 65-25 record in the Mountain West and Pac-12, two BCS bowl wins, eight straight bowl bids, and a near miss of a division title in the program's first Pac-12 season. 

Utes blog Block U was already freaking out a little about the PSU report. Pray they take this news easy.
