So who (realistically) is on your coaching wishlist?

Don't mind that I'm a Hawkeye fan - I'm not here to troll.  The Chizik fiasco has me feeling bad for the ISU fans, and I obviously have more than a curious interrest in whom ISU replaces him with.

Who's realistically got a shot at the job?  And who's right for the job?  I see a few categories that the candidates could fall in:

Recently fired head coaches:

  • Ty Willingham (He recruits good student-athletes.  While Washington was a flame-out, Stanford and Notre Dame still look good on resume, especially given that Weis has only been successful with Ty's recruits.)
  • Tommy Tuberville (It would be ironic, karmic, and one helluva talk-radio wundertopic.)
  • Phillip Fulmer (Ties to the South and East recruiting hotbeds)

Coaches looking for a comeback

  • Uncle Glen Mason (He knows how to recruit in the midwest, and how to re-build.  He also knows second-half and second-half of the season collapses.  As an Iowa fan, this hire would be very fun for me.)
  • Dan McCarney (As Chizik showed, you could do worse.  But seriously, he's coaching a team that is playing for a National Champinship, and now has ties to recruiting hot-bed Florida.  Mac in 2008 is a huge upgrade to Mac in 2005.)

Current hot names:

  • Turner Gill (A return to the Big 12.  Minority candidate.  Plus, from all accounts, he's so darned likeable.)
  • Skip Holtz (Not sure if ISU is an upgrade from Easter Carolina.)

That's a start.  There are names to add to those categories, and there are other categories that y'all can fill in for me, such as Former ISU Assistants/Players, etc.  Whom am I missing, and whom will get the job?
