We do know that he contacted new Illinois head coach Ron Zook and received permission to talk with Illini offensive coordinator Larry Fedora and Illinois offensive line coach Jim Wickline. Fedora coached with Gundy on the staff of head coach Chuck Reedy at Baylor.
Fedora is a bright offensive mind who also coached for Fisher DeBerry at Air Force and set school offensive records as the offensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee State. Fedora went on to guide a very potent spread offensive attack at Florida before moving on to Illinois after this past season with Zook. Wickline was with Fedora at Florida and is recognized as an excellent offensive line coach.
Gundy was scheduled to go out and see some recruits Tuesday night while also calling recruits in Texas by phone. Meanwhile, Joe DeForest was on the road and was spotted at Houston Westside High School visiting celebrated prospect R.J. Jackson. He was also scheduled to visit Cowboy safety commitment Andre Sexton out of Cypress Falls High School.
