  • HARSIN: One and done.
The coaching carousel continues at Arkansas State, with Bryan Harsin leaving after one season, the third year in a row the Red Wolves have lost their coach to another school after just one season. Harsin will take over as head coach at Boise State, where he was an offensive coordinator for five years from 2006-2011.

This year's squad wasn't as dominant as the teams under the one-year tenures of Hugh Freeze, who left for Ole Miss after 2011 and Gus Malzahn, who left for Auburn after 2012, but they did win a share of their third straight Sun Belt Conference championship — so perhaps they should embrace the one-and-done approach, sort of the Kentucky basketball of football coaches.  

Jim Harris of Sporting Life Arkansas has suggested in the past that they hire Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, the 30-year-old hotshot protege of Malzahn. Lashlee spent a year as offensive coordinator of A-State under Malzahn and is a Springdale native who was a backup quarterback for the Arkansas Razorbacks. He's an up-and-coming name in coaching circles, so there's a good chance they'd keep up the one-year pattern if they go with Lashlee. 

Other ideas?

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
