Plausible deniability is one reason that coaches and schools use agents and search firms. Arizona tells its consultant to list and filter potential HC candidates. And AP has an agent that gets paid to toss his name around for three reasons.
* To fish for more lucrative opportunities.
* To create hype and national name recognition that will lead to more lucrative opportunities.
* To create a stronger bargaining position with ASU to get AP a better contract.
In the end, AP can honestly say that that he never contacted Arizona. Arizona can honestly say that it never tampered with any coaches that are under contract. It is the game within the game.
