Morning links: Pendergast back in the mix?

A week ago, Clancy Pendergast was a popular choice to become the next defensive coordinator at LSU.

But now that it appears Pendergast will not be joining Les Miles' staff, could he be a good for the same position at Washington State? Zach Barnett of seems to think so. Football Scoop has a good track record of reporting coaching movements, so when Barnett lists Pendergast to WSU as a potential development, then follows with "it feels as if each scenario will play out in the coming days," there is probably something there.

Pendergast was mentioned as a potential hire at WSU soon after the position became available.

Barnett added, "a decision is likely in the coming days," which is consistent with what we've been saying.
