University of Miami athletic director Kirby Hocutt has discussed the vacant Miami job with three candidates this week while in New York.

Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen was approached but with the developments with Urban Meyer's resignation that is a long shot.

The others were Connecticut's Randy Edsall and Tommy Tuberville of Texas Tech. Not unexpected.

Bo Pelini is now in the mix. According to a Miami Herald source, Nebraska gave Pellini permission to pursue the Miami job. Hocutt plans to speak to Pellini who has expressed some interest.

The Associated Press reports that Nebraska athletic director Tom Osburne did not grant permission for Pelini to speak with Miami nor did Pelini seek such permission.

Those of us at the OSG HQ feel Tuberville is the front runner. Tubs enjoys support from the football alumni plus he's been successful where ever he has coached.

The process continues.
