If Sitake left (I know, not happening), who could replace him?
So the usual caveats - USC probably doesn't want him, Kalani might not be interested even if they offered.
But all this talk about Sitake and USC got me thinking about potential replacements, with the caveat that whoever replaces him pretty much 100% has to be a member of the church.
So I haven't thought about this recently, but what options exist if/when Sitake does eventually leave.
Whittingham isn't happening
Niumatalolo is the name that always comes up, but runs an option offense
Andy Reid is the dream, but also isn't happening
Ed Lamb isn't LDS, but is as close a case as there is, so maybe could be an exception
Steve Kaufusi hasn't coached the past few years
Bronco isn't coming back from Virginia
Justin Anderson is LDS and director of player personnel and does a bunch of recruiting, but it would be quite the jump for him.
so they're all worth checking on, but seem like non-starters
Realistic options are
Guys on staff include Aaron Roderick, Ilsa Tuiaki, maybe Fesi Sitake? Maybe a few others
Lance Anderson (Stanford DC)
Kind of feel like (with the exception of Lance Anderson), it would have to be a promotion from within. Am I missing any other candidates?
