Some Joker wants to possibly hire Lockwood

Written by Colin Dunlap on .

So there is, indeed, a carousel -- or at least one swirling around that might, or might not, impact the West Virginia football staff.

First, there is that Jeff Mullen is a candidate at Kent State for their head coaching stuff. That much is fact. I even spoke on the radio about it today for a little while with the brilliant Hoppy Kercheval, one of the smartest men I know.

But, there is more --- apparently some Joker wants to, possibly, hire David Lockwood away from West Virginia. If Lockwood is offered the position of co-defensive coordinator in Lexington, he has to jump, one would think. 

But the whirling doesn't stop there. This is the longest shot, but some people are saying Chris Beatty could have a chance at being Northern Illinois' next head coach. I'm thinking it is akin to a 200/1 shot or so and I don't see it happening, but it would seem his name is out there, even in a minor mention.
