Do you want Spencer to name an "interim coach" for an entire season?

Thus he is wanting to hold open scholarships for whomever he lands for next season. AD Spencer would have some potential coaches very interested in the idea of having 7 open scholarships (3 open now + Gibson, Hainna, Simmons and Traore). Returning in the 2018-19 season at this point would be Frederking, Hall, Hill, Kuhlman, Smith and Taylor and this small number of six could even be less if any defections occurred due to a coaching change (or any other reason).
Any new coach would have carte blanche to clean house however he saw fit, so I don't think this is it.
