Clemson: We hear that Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips is very interested in TCU head coach Gary Patterson.
Indiana: Incoming athletic director Fred Glass has announced that Bill Lynch will return as head coach.
Tennessee: Reports are that Tennessee will name Lane Kiffin head football coach on Monday. Despite many rumors, FootballScoop has learned at this point that Ed Orgeron does not plan to join Kiffin's staff. Orgeron is in his first year as the defensive line coach with the New Orleans Saints. Kiffin's first move in assembling a staff is a likely offer to Southern Miss assistant Frank Wilson.
