The players seem to be buying into what Smith and Moore are trying to do.

This got any legs  :-\
I doubt it, considering his pedigree why would he jump ship to a league one outfit from a contender for the prem?
Paper talk because there is still little to no Baggies transfer activity to go at probably

I suppose the prospect of being the main man as manager as oppose to assistant here. Luton are 2nd in League One also.

I think he'd be a terrific choice for Luton, would suit them down to the ground. I certainly think Luton would be daft not to have him top of their list.

Would he go though? Well being a number one would be an attractive proposition but every man and his dog seem to be loving life at the Albion and he and Big Dave have an extremely strong bond. You never know in football but I'd be surprised if he left.

Think they are very wise to consider him, and being his own boss must surely appeal.
I would have thought though that, if he was that determined to be head coach, his stock was higher after the World Cup so he would have done it then. Hope he sees us as a work in progress and decides the timing is not right.

Jones definitely has a desire to be a manager and stated upon arrival that “Darren’s the only person I’d be an assistant to now” in the following interview:

It's the sort of body blow you wouldn't really want to experience at any time but I would back Moore to overcome the issue if he did leave. I think he would be able to get a manager's job in the Championship however so wouldn't be surprised to see him stay if the link is true.

I’d be amazed if he left us for a league 1 job, especially with his close relationship with Moore and the effort Moore went to get him in.

I'd have been more worried if Stoke had made an approach. Surely he has a better CV than Nathan Jones (who has been gone too long!)

Ultimately if Jones wants to step up to a Head Coach role he probably hasn't too long to do so. He has had 11 years of Assistant roles he is 48 there will come a point where there will be a generation of younger coaches with Head Coach experience like for instance Nathan Jones.

That would be the sort of disruption we could really do without. Losing both Barnes and Jones at the same time would leave huge holes for us in key areas, half way through the season.

Indeed, News of this sort would give Norwich (for example) a distinct psychological advantage wouldn't it?...........................................................just saying.

Not ideal but I think Moore is resilient and resourceful enough to cope. Him and Jones have a very close relationship so, I would imagine, if Jones is really intent on leaving, Moore will be the first to know, thus giving him time to put the feelers out for a replacement.
In the short term I would think that Shan would step up.
