Hey, so Jeff Casteel is almost hired. Soon. Maybe. Even though it's final. What those smart people in the field do know is that it looks like he's going to the Arizona Wildcats for sure.
In the past week or so, we assumed that it'd happen following the Orange Bowl. Then it got delayed. Then rumors about Penn State arose, as did rumblings that Casteel was somewhat torn on leaving his alma mater to join Rich Rodriguez in Tucson.
Colin Dunlap tweeted that the contract was finalized and Ryan Finley of the Arizona Daily Star believe it'll happen by tomorrow. Anthony Gimino of the Tucson Citizen wrote a good background piece regarding Casteel and RichRod, and he said the announcement will come tomorrow afternoon, as will the naming of a couple of other defensive assistants that will fill out Rodriguez's staff.
Anyway, this should be done soon. Perhaps.
