Diaz is gone sooner than later and Chief is about as good a DC as there is anywhere. Does Brown throw the bank at Chavis? It's a bit out of his comfort zone but texas has more money than anyone in cfb
GET AT ME
They already did before Diaz. So did GA.
It's not Diaz. It's Mack Brown. Diaz had done a lot more with a lot less at Mississippi State. Mack Brown is to blame for fostering a country club environment that produces soft players.

They're the softest team in CFB but that D is poorly coached (tackling, poor angles, gap assignments) and Diaz rightly won't survive

Who says that Brown will survive? the flames are getting higher and higher on his butt. another loss this year and he is more than likely gone. He has a few teams left that will light him up and stop his offense. I look for Texas to have two more losses, at the least.
He turned them down once and also Georgia and everyone at LSU says he is happy there. I could see him getting more money but I don't think he would leave for what many would consider a move that wouldn't even be a lateral one with the state of the program.
Also, with Mack Brown's tenure coming to what seems like an end over there within the next few years, that is something he would also have to consider.
Million bucks a year and loyal to miles. Complete control. Ton of talent. He's staying.
Agree, i don't see him going anywhere.
He has what he needs in a conference he knows better than anyone. He has recognition, success, tons of NFL players, loyalty, control of the D, talent to develop, adequate salary with none of the headaches of a HC.
If he ever was going to move - I'd venture to guess it would be to return to the Vols (his school) or South Carolina (his state).
The guy is one in a million.
He could break LSU fans hearts, but I seriously doubt it. Chavis is all about loyalty and stability. He didn't want to leave Knoxville but Kiffin wanted to bring his Daddy. Chavis had many chance to leave UT to become a HC but stayed.
He's handsomely paid at LSU and has complete autonomy. It's his defense from the personnel to the staff.
I remember a couple years back, when many on here (on different sites) bitched about JC....incessantly; and called ourD..........3rd and Chavis!!!
"It's my hometown, and that's big for me," Henry said. "It's about playing for the home team in front of family
I guess since we no longer fret about the HC leaving, we're going to fret over the assistants leaving
Bertman to Miami
DiNardo to Notre Dame
Miles to Michigan
Honestly, I'd be much more concerned if Tenn came calling about being a head coach after Dooley gets the boot. We've all heard that Chavis doesn't want to be a head coach, but being the head coach at his alma mater might be the only one of any interest. He'd be the best candidate.
He isn't going anywhere else for a coordinator position. He's got it too easy here.
Chavis is locked in here as long as Miles is here. Whatever offer he would get we would match. He has little to no incentive to leave. He has a roster loaded with talent and he's had a solid to great defense every year here. Only thing I could see that would interest him and this is only because he's from there is if a new HC at TN came calling and it was the right guy.
Paul Mainieri = 358-147 ovr (70.9%), 136-100 SEC (57.6%), 21-10 NCAA (67.7%), 3 CWS App., 2 SEC Titles, 1 National Title
I can tell you from knowing people close to Chavis that he would only leave LSU for a HC position and it would have to be a big one at that. Tennessee tried to bring him back as DC a year or two ago, and he told them to call back when they were offering the HC position.
