247Sports' Patrick Brown reports that Tennessee will interview Houston OC Kendal Briles for their open offensive-coordinating position.

Brown hears that Briles has "emerged as one of the leading candidates" for the open job in Knoxville and that he will interview in the very near future, possibly as early as Friday. Briles just signed a three-year contract extension with Houston, making it somewhat unclear how interested he might be in Vols gig. It would be a fascinating hire if it came to fruition, as Briles has produced powerhouse offenses at both FAU and Houston since leaving Baylor. Per Brown, Alabama QB coach Dan Enos is also on Tennessee's radar. The program is looking to replace outgoing OC Tyson Helton, who earlier accepted the head-coaching position at Western Kentucky.

Multiple sources tell Kyle Rowland of the Toledo Blade that Ohio State is the favorite for Georgia freshman QB Justin Fields if he transfers.

An earlier report noted that Florida State and Oklahoma were potential transfer destinations, but based on what Rowland is hearing from multiple sources, it sounds like the Buckeyes would be the top option. It's also been reported that Fields has hired Tom Mars, the attorney who helped Shea Patterson gain immediate eligibility for Michigan. Assuming Dwayne Haskins enters the NFL Draft, Fields could be the immediate starter for the Buckeyes in 2019; although if he gains eligibility he'd certainly be the favorites at Florida State or an Oklahoma team without Kyler Murray. Stay tuned.

Former Ball State redshirt junior QB Riley Neal is transferring to Vanderbilt.

Neal (6'6/225) will be eligible immediately -- he is a graduate transfer -- and should be at least in the running for the starting spot in 2019 with Kyle Shurmur graduating. At Ball State, Neal had his struggles, but he does enter the university with 34 games of experience. As a junior in 2018, Neal completed just 57.9 percent of his passes while averaging only 5.7 yards per pass attempt and 1.8 total touchdowns per game. Perhaps elevated talent and a new system will lead to a better statistical season in 2019.

USA Today's Dan Wolken notes the foundation for Justin Fields' potential appeal for 2019 eligibility "could be" based around the racist remarks made by a Georgia student-athlete towards Fields.

Fields will have to build a case to win his appeal for 2019 eligibility if he ultimately decides to transfer, and basing it around the racist comments made by dismissed Georgia baseball player Adam Sasser would certainly be a strong case. In fact, Wolken believes it would be a strong enough case to win his appeal given how lenient the NCAA has been on waivers recently. We are still multiple steps away from all of this speculation -- Fields still hasn't told Georgia he is transferring -- but Fields could end up starting at Ohio State, Oklahoma, Florida State, or other universities as soon as 2019 if everything breaks his way.

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love will not play in the Sun Bowl.

Love (5'10/202) will instead focus on the NFL Draft, and it's without a doubt the correct decision for him. So much of Love's draft grade will be injury related and risking further damage in the bowl game would be a potential detriment to his draft stock. Love has shown a ton of explosion at times -- he averaged 8.1 YPC on 263 attempts in 2017 -- but that was stolen from him this year while playing on a bummed ankle. The Draft Network's Benjamin Solak notes that Love is being viewed as a Day 3 selection at the moment, but Love could beat that assessment if he can show NFL doctors that his ankle injuries aren't an issue moving forward.

Alabama HC Nick Saban told reporters that sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from his ankle injury.

"He’s been able to take a lot of reps," Saban said. "He’s been able to throw the ball from the pocket. He can run." Saban also noted that he's not 100 percent in terms of change-of-direction runs, but that he's already going full speed on the treadmill. Tagovailoa still has another 12 days before he faces off against Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, and at this point, it would be a major surprise if he wasn't behind center for that semifinal match.

FIU junior RB Shawndarrius Phillips will not play in the Bahamas Bowl following his arrest for domestic violence.

Phillips was arrested on December 12, which is nearly six months after the assault took place. A second investigation took place after the original charge on June 18 was disposed, and he was arrested for having an outstanding warrant on Wednesday. FIU has not commented on the incident yet, and there's no word on if this is a disciplinary suspension or Phillips' choice.

Michigan sophomore DT Aubrey Solomon announced his intention to transfer.

Solomon was a huge get for the Wolverines in 2017, and the 6-foot-3, 297-pound tackle showed flashes during his time with the Wolverines. He also battled injuries during his sophomore season, and appeared in just two games for Michigan in 2018. He'll get another year of eligibility because he didn't appear four-plus games, but he'll have to sit out the 2019 season if he transfers to a program at the FBS level. There should be lots -- and we do mean lots -- of interest in his services.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that new USC OC Kliff Kingsbury is still a potential candidate for an NFL coaching job.

Kingsbury was hired to serve as offensive coordinator on December 5, but it sounds like it could -- emphasis on could -- be a short stay. He was fired by Texas Tech after going 35-40 in his time with the Red Raiders, but he's viewed as one of the more innovative offensive minds in the sport, and the NFL is always looking for the next big thing when it comes to scheme(s). There are even reports from Glazer that suggest he could be an NFL head coaching candidate, which seems farfetched, but just goes to show you how respected Kingsbury is as an offensive mind. Fun.

Iowa junior QB Nathan Stanley will return to school for his senior season.

This isn't a big surprise, but it's welcome news for the Hawkeyes. Stanley took some big step forwards in 2018, and threw for 23 touchdowns with nine interceptions in his junior year. That 58.3 completion percentage still leaves a lot to be desired, and consistency has been an issue for the 6-foot-4, 242-pound signal-caller. A strong showing as a senior could see Stanley as a potential Day 2 pick in 2020.

Notre Dame HC Brian Kelly was named the AP Coach of the Year.

Kelly takes home the award over fellow finalists Josh Heupel of UCF and Nick Saban of Alabama. It's the second Coach of the Year honor for the 57-year-old, as he won the Hope Depot Coach of the Year award in on December 5. The plaudits are deserved; Kelly lead the Irish to a 12-0 season and an appearance in the College Football Playoff against Clemson in a year where most prognosticators expected eight-to-nine wins.
Dec 17 - 12:20 PM

Freshman QB Jack Tuttle is transferring to Indiana.

Tuttle announced that he would transfer in October after signing on as a four-star commitment last December. This is potentially a huge get for the Hoosiers, as the 6-foot-3, 210-pound quarterback had offers from some of the more high-profile schools. He'll have to sit out the 2019 season unless he gets a waiver, but he'll have three more years of eligibility left since he didn't play for the Utes in 2018.
