San Diego State Coaching Search Down to Three

Jeremy@jeremymaussSenior Writer IDecember 12, 2008

There are still three candidates left, but Mike Martz is off the list and the new arrival is Ball State head man Brady Hoke.

Hoke led Ball State to a 12-1 record, the best in school history, and a good reason that Hoke is interested in the job is that according to the San Diego Union Tribune is that San Diego State could triple his current salary of $240,000.

The other two candidates are Dennis Franchione, who has coached at New Mexico, TCU, Alabama, and Texas A&M; and there is DeWayne Walker current UCLA defensive coordinator.

The front runner at this time, in my opinion, is Dennis Franchione because he has proven twice to being able to turn around programs of this caliber, and then Brady Hoke because of his success at Ball State, and then Walker mainly because UCLA was terrible on defense.

Walker is a good coach, but he needs to show it on the field with his teams.
