I knew they were going after an offensive coordinator, to give Blaine Gabbert some help, but as a fan, I'm not thrilled with Mularkey. Being from Western NY, I was privy to his first HC turn with Buffalo, where he was all but run out of town after two years. He didn't inspire much confidence with Atlanta's last game, but success as a coordinator is not necessarily indicative of success as a head coach. Plus, it's not like no one has failed in their first HC job and then had succeess in their second. I suppose I have enough trust in GM Gene Smith and their new owner to give this a shot.

Idaho would add less than nothing. Probably would look at Houston or SMU from Conference USA, with both possible should TCU jump. New MWC would have a strong case to get an auto BCS bid should TCU not jump.
