Update: Dave Aranda is not expected to be the next head coach at UNLV.

LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda has been linked to the open head coaching jobs at Colorado State and UNLV, according to a report from Ross Dellenger with Sports Illustrated.

Aranda is the highest-paid assistant coach in college football, making $2.5 million a year.

During last year's Fiesta Bowl press conference, Aranda was asked about being a head coach in the future and said it was something he has always wanted.

UNLV has not released the financial terms of Arroyo’s contract with the Rebels, but athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois has said she will be competitive compared to other Mountain West schools. That could put Arroyo in the $1 million range. Also appealing to UNLV was that the hire of Arroyo did not require any contract buyout from University of Oregon. Arroyo made $800,000 this year at Oregon and Sanchez was getting paid $650,000 as the head coach at UNLV until he was fired.

I think LSU will give all those that stay big raises. Aranda $3 to $4 Million. Coach O? $7 Million. Co OCs $2M each?

Colorado State is probably a cool place. It’s not a career-ender either. Jim Mcelwein coached there a couple years before landing the Florida job.

I would think he could hold out for a better job- those two stops do not offer any security and how good can Aranda recruit anyway?

Have to believe Ole Miss and Arky reached out. He didn’t get one of those so I’d have to believe he’s sticking around for a while longer

Both those jobs suck at best.

Based on these jobs Aranda is "interested" in I really think Aranda is being encouraged to leave. It has seemed that there was something wrong especially earlier in the year. The defense was not normal and there was little aggressiveness and LSU was giving up yardage at an alarming rate?

Unfortunately, this is the price we are going to pay for having a championship program. Just like Alabama, schools will be coming for our assistant coaches. I do hope he stays here however.

Damn you TigerRant. Y’all ran off our guru. Bring back Chavis!

Hell naw don't want chavis. Plus coach Oeaux does not like Chavis. But Aranda is in some serious talk with UNLV right now. Don't know how serious the other school is with aranda
