Football - Will Chan Be Back?

Personally, I don't think Chan Gailey is going anywhere. But every day that goes by throws our recruiting class into question, since signing day is just around the corner. Now we have stories like this - where Jimbo Fisher is suddently NOT going to FSU as he considers other options including Georgia Tech:

Negotiations between FSU athletic director Dave Hart and Jimmy Sexton, Fisher's agent, had a multitude of twists and turns along the way.

Fisher was entertaining a contract offer to join former LSU coach Nick Saban at Alabama and pondering the possibility of staying put in Baton Rouge, when a new twist entered the equation.

Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey interviewed with the Miami Dolphins as Saban's potential replacement, possibly opening up a head-coaching vacancy at the Atlantic Coast Conference school where Dan Radakovich is the athletic director. Radakovich was an assistant AD at LSU before taking the Georgia Tech job, and according to published reports, he would consider Fisher as a potential replacement for Gailey.
