According to an exclusive report from WDAM, the rumor we reported earlier in the week that 5 candidates were interviewed in Dallas over the weekend was in fact true (and Charlie Cobb was one of them). Going into the interviews, reports said that App State AD Charlie Cobb was the lead candidate for the same job at So. Miss.
This report states that coming out of the interviews he is one of 2 lead candidates, the other being current interim So. Miss AD Jeff Hammond. The report also states that the decision could be made by the end of the week. The need to hire a new basketball coach is apparently speeding up the AD hiring process. No offense Charlie but I hope Hammond gets the job!
