You can apparently scratch Air Force coach Troy Calhoun from the list of potential coaches at Vanderbilt. Calhoun was a longshot at best for the Commodores. Last year, the Falcons’ coach turned down the job at Tennessee. And he quickly jumped to the top of the list for the Denver Broncos when Josh McDaniels was fired yesterday afternoon.
The Air Force Academy announced today that Calhoun will be back in Colorado Springs next year. In the release both the coach and the academy’s athletic director stated that Calhoun is dedicated to staying.
While coaches often downplay coaching rumors right up until the time they take a new job, it’s unusual for a coach to be quoted in an official release… and then leave.
Besides, even if Calhoun chose to leave Air Force, it would likely be for the Broncos’ multi-millions and not the Commodores’ ” just plain ‘ol” millions.
