At the College Football Roundtable each week, we ask members of the coverage staff for their opinions about a topic in the sport. We will have two questions this week, one today and one Sunday.

TODAY'S QUESTION: Which current college assistant are you confident will have a head-coaching job next season at an FBS school?

Tom Dienhart's answer:

I think the time finally will come for Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson to score a head-coaching job. He has come close in the past, particularly when the Mississippi State job opened after the 2008 season. Wilson has proven to be an innovative mind who has built some of the nation's most prolific attacks during his run in Norman, which began in 2002. Wilson won the Frank Broyles Award as the nation's top assistant in 2008, when his offense set NCAA records by scoring at least 60 points in five consecutive games and 716 for the season. Before joining Bob Stoops, Wilson was the architect of some high-flying Northwestern offenses. The guy can coach, and his time will come.
