Michigan’s Pep Hamilton a candidate at Mississippi State and Arizona State, per reports

Michigan football assistant Pep Hamilton is a candidate at both Mississippi State and Arizona State now that each program has decided to part with its head coach, according to separate media reports.

Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman reports Monday:

“Some of the names I expect to get into the mix for this one: former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who was fired by the Aggies Sunday; Vandy head coach Derek Mason, a Phoenix native; WVU’s Dana Holgorsen; UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, who is serving as the Bruins interim head coach, Michigan passing game coordinator Pep Hamilton, Baltimore Ravens assistant Greg Roman and Arizona Cardinals OC Harold Goodwin.”

So Hamilton isn’t exactly alone on this list, but it’s the second head coaching gig he’s been connected to this week. USA Today’s Dan Wolken reported Sunday that Hamilton is a “top candidate” for Arizona State’s recently opened head coaching job.

Hamilton joined Michigan’s staff this offseason as assistant head coach and passing game coordinator following a stint with the Cleveland Browns. He has never been a head coach, but has experience in college and the NFL dating back to 1997.
