Theories about Venables

From NewsOK:

Here are those theories …

1) Venables has an offer and is weighing it, giving Bob Stoops and OU time to talk with him about how responsibilities will be divvied and whether he’ll receive any sort of raise. In other words, the ball is in Venables’ court.

2) Swinney has a couple of interviews — serious, courtesy or something in between — left to do before offering Venables the job. That’s distinctly possible, too. Swinney, I’m told, has been out on the road recruiting yesterday and today. Could he had talked with candidates on the phone? Sure. But if he’s serious about them, I’m sure he’d like to give them the same red carpet, in-person treatment that Venables received.

Wild card: Maybe Venables knew K-State was coming open, and now that’s a factor in this. If nothing else, it could advance the Clemson timeline, if Dabo was dawdling. If Venables still has any desire to be the head coach at his alma mater, perhaps this is the doorway. But that’s complicated, as you know, and Clemson might be the better job, anyway, because of money and how the program is situated in a winnable league. Then again, there’s the pull of the home state and alma mater.
