On Sunday afternoon, Florida International fired its head football coach Ron Turner.
Shortly after, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman came out with a story detailing early possible candidates for the coaching vacancy.
Feldman mentioned Michigan quarterbacks/wide receivers coach and passing coordinator Jedd Fisch as a possible replacement.
Fisch was mentioned because both he and FIU Athletic Director Pete Garcia had ties to the University of Miami.
Fisch has been with the Wolverines since 2015 and was previously an offensive coordinator in the NFL for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2013-14. He was also an offensive coordinator at Miami and Minnesota in college football and served in various coaching roles with other NFL and college teams.
This year, the Wolverines’ offense has put up at least 45 points in all four of its games, all wins.
Butch Davis, most recently the head coach of North Carolina, was mentioned as a possible big candidate.
Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, Kentucky offensive coordinator Eddie Gran, Tennessee assistant Larry Scott and Florida defensive coordinator Geoff Collins were also mentioned as well.
Feldman also mentioned that he suspected “all of these guys would listen if FIU called.”
