The Chicago Tribune is report that Northern Illinois University coach Dave Doeren is a prime candidate to take over a head coaching position. He is mentioned as a possible candidate for Purdue, Kentucky, Tennessee and others. Those who don't know him, he is a Kansas native who came to NIU after completing his fifth season at Wisconsin, where he served as defensive coordinator along with linebackers coach, with a trip to the 2011 Rose Bowl. In all, he helped take teams to eight bowl games and two national championship contests as an assistant. During Doeren's time at Wisconsin, the Badgers posted a 49-15 overall record and played in the Champs Sports Bowl (twice), Outback Bowl and Capital One Bowl.
In January of 2008, Doeren added defensive coordinator duties to his assignment as linebackers coach after spending his first two seasons in Madison as the Badgers' co-defensive coordinator, linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator.
I like the fact that he is strong on defense and recruiting, something UT needs.
