This is a thoughtful piece by the Fake Gimel Martinez at Kentucky Sports Radio. He wonders if it would be better for Brooks to retire this year, or stay on, and makes some fair points pro or con.
My feeling is that Brooks should stay just as long as he pleases. I assume that at some point, he will decide to call it a career, and I suppose that he is or intends to gradually let Phillips come more to the front, very much as Bobby Bowden did at FSU.
But then again, who knows? Add to the speculation below.
