McElwain The “People’s Choice” At Fresno State?

Alabama offensive coordinator Jim McElwain seems to be a ready-made fit at Fresno State.  The man who either turned down Memphis at the last minute or got passed by Justin Fuente at the finish line this week — depending on who you to talk to — was Pat Hill’s top offensive coach in 2007, before joining Nick Saban’s staff.  According to one long-time FSU booster, McElwain expressed in the job two years ago.

“Just let me know when Pat Hill leaves or retires,” he told a group of Bulldog boosters at the 2009 Alabama-LSU game.  Well, Hill’s been forced out and now McElwain is believed to be a hot candidate for the job.  How hot?  Here’s what that long-time Fresno State booster, Harry Gaykian, told The Fresno Bee:

 

“I know he said he was interested (in) coming back to Fresno State before, and he’d definitely be a good choice for the university to consider.  Whether he’s the best fit, I don’t know.  I know a lot of people would be excited about him coming back.  He did a lot of good things when he was at Fresno.”

 

A Fresno State official also told the paper: “We can sell tickets with McElwain.  We can sell McElwain.  He knows Fresno and knows how to recruit in California.”

Personally, I can’t hear Fresno mentioned without hearing Johnny in “Airplane II” saying, “Fresno?  No one goes to Fresno anymore.”

Its been a rumored around the state that Saban squashed McElwain to Memphis which wouldn't surprise me. I doubt we see him go to Fresno State either.

After watching Fisher, Muschamp and Dooley all have disappointing years im a little surprised that both Smart and McElwain are getting any attention
