Chip Lindsey named candidate for Southern Miss HC job
After being introduced as ASU's new offensive coordinator ahead of the Sun Devils' bowl clash with West Virginia, Chip Lindsey might be on his way out. Southern Miss' head coach Todd Monken has left the school to become the new offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Golden Eagles are strongly considering making Lindsey -- who spent the last two seasons on Monken's staff -- their new head coach, according to FoxSports.com's Bruce Feldman.
A source told FOX Sports on Sunday night that 40-year-old Chip Lindsey, who left USM this offseason after helping the program set several offensive records to become the OC at ASU, is expected to get strong consideration for the job. Word is the AD would like to hire a coach with a strong offensive background. Lindsey turned down opportunities to become the head coach at Eastern Kentucky and Louisiana-Monroe.
The Sun Devils are set to pay Lindsey $550,000 per year, having used him to replace former offensive coordinator Mike Norvell, who took a head coaching gig at Memphis during the bowl season.
