One name gaining traction at Georgia State is South Carolina offensive line coach Shawn Elliott, sources say. Elliott served as South Carolina's co-offensive coordinator from 2012 to 2015 and was interim coach following Steve Spurrier's midseason retirement.

Arizona State offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey has talked with Georgia State about its coaching vacancy, according to a source. Lindsey, a candidate for the Southern Miss job last year, also likely would be in the mix at Troy if Neal Brown leaves for another job (Cincinnati possible).

Two other possibilities for Georgia State: West Georgia head coach Will Hall and North Carolina offensive coordinator Chris Kapilovic. Both have roots working in multiple southeastern states. Hall is 49-16 as a Division II head coach.

Some potential candidates for Georgia State: Maryland OC Walt Bell (extensive Sun Belt ties); Charleston Southern coach Jamey Chadwell; South Florida co-OC David Reaves; Auburn OC Rhett Lashlee; Jacksonville State coach John Grass; Arizona State OC Chip Lindsey. Wonder if Clemson OCs Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott would get a look.
