Michael Dyer Transfer To Arkansas State Not Happening, According To Report

Here we now have a report regarding the Arkansas St. Red Wolves roster that goes against claims made by ASU players. We live in interesting times. Moments after two Red Wolves welcomed Auburn Tigers running back Michael Dyer to Jonesboro, Richard Davenport of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette denied the news:

Recruiting Guy@ArRecruitingGuy The rumors of Michael Dyer to ASU are false. He plans to meet with Chizik and remain at Auburn.

Dunno, but kinda lean toward the players on this one until we hear otherwise.

Once Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn left Auburn to take the ASU head coaching job, speculation increased that the suspended Dyer could leave town. He's succeeded in Malzahn's scheme on the Plains, and would presumably have a chance to put up impressive numbers in the Sun Belt as well.

Eric Mangini The Latest Penn State Coaching Candidate Rumor

We're now on Day Almost 50 of the Penn St. Nittany Lions coaching search, with Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak refuting "done deal" reports and taking himself out of the running. Next up: former Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini, according to a report from Fox 29 Philadelphia. There's also a Nick Saban rumor at which you're free to chortle.

Mangini was recommended for PSU by Bill Parcells, according to earler mumblings. He's never coached at the college level in any capacity, but he does hold D-III Wesleyan's single-season sacks record.

A Bill Belichick protege, he coached the New York Jets from 2006 to 2008 and the Browns from 2009 to 2010. He put together a 33-47 career record, with an 0-1 playoff mark. Most of his experience comes on the defensive side of the ball, where he worked for the New England Patriots.

Kind of hard to write about these NFL coaches who have no clear college connections. We all do our best.
