The Tulsa football program has sacked head coach Bill Blankenship after a 2-10 season and is looking for the next front runner. Several candidates have been announced for the position, with two interesting names topping the list.

Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman noted that two coaches should be considered for the position:

Frost, who played a huge role with Oregon, jumps out as a fascinating candidate. His offense is the ducks in the college football playoff, led by Heisman candidate Marcus Mariota.

In addition to Frost, Tulsa is also reportedly keeping an eye on Utah state coach Matt Wells. Wells has led the Aggies to a 9-4 record this year but was recently throttled by Boise State (50-19) to end the season.

He recently shared his thoughts on other employment opportunities, according to Scott Garrard of 97.5 The Zone:

Both coaches bring a wealth of college-level experience with them, but Wells has two years of success as head coach. For a Tulsa team that hasn’t reached a bowl since 2012, the Golden Hurricane needs a pedigree trainer to win instantly.
