North Texas: UNT has posted the head strength position. This leads everyone to believe that Aaron Ausmus is headed for Tennessee. It will be interesting to see if UNT head coach Todd Dodge goes after former Mississippi State head strength coach Ben Pollard or Washington assistant Charr Gahagan. If Dodge wants to keep a similar style to Ausmus, Gahagen could be next in line. Both served on the staff at USC at one time.
