I can make a case for him staying.
1. He gets one more year of Jags pay, I believe.
2. He's already been a head coach. He isn't going to run to the first available place just because the pay is better. Having done it before, he will be more cautious and look for a good situation.
3. If we go to the SB, outside of him pulling a Petrino, the positions may be filled by the time our season ends.
