Do you realize that would exclude anyone currently under contract? That rules out the OC for virtually every D1 team with a winning record-and I don't see a team preparing for a bowl game giving Iowa permission to poach a coach during bowl prep.
PSU, who is preparing for a Bowl Game like us, has already hired an OC from Kansas, another school that is preparing for a bowl game. It can be done.
Further, it seems many of the candidates mentioned are not necessarily on other staffs. We absolutely could have shifted Budmayr to an interim OC role over this next month if he is the eventual guy. Paul Chryst is an analyst, he could be hired away if he is the guy you want to target.
Just because KF prefers to put off all personnel decisions until after the exhibition game is wrapped up, that does not mean it is the only way it can be done.
