Shrinking market

It's been an interesting offseason for Jimbo Fisher.

The LSU offensive coordinator has seen his name tossed around a bunch with various jobs, yet nothing has stuck.

One has to wonder if the market is shrinking on Fisher.

He rightly decided he was better off at LSU than trying to be the head coach at Cincinnati.

Many thought he was in line at N.C. State, but apparently that job is headed to Boston College's Tom O'Brien.

Fisher's best bet may be for Rich Rodriguez to leave West Virginia for Alabama. Then there would be an opening at West Virginia.

The real problem is when you're making good money - and Fisher certainly is - some lower-tier college head coaching jobs come at a pay cut. And upper-tier jobs are looking for head coaching experience.

It's still early, but it will be interesting to see what happens to Fisher on the market.
