Our new coach is going to be on the Rich Eisen show in the upcoming hour. Rich just interviewed Charles on the show, both giddily making Dumb and Dumber references...man I am excited.
Unfortunately no further detail on when the interview will start...I will post a time if I hear anything.
EDIT: Ah, Rich said Harbaugh is in a meeting now but they will try to get him in the 2:00 hour. But Hutch and Desmond are calling in. Sorry for the false alarm.
It's as Rich says "Coronation Day"
Hackett came on instead of Harbaugh. Quick interview. It sounds like he has a couple more projects to work on after this before he and Schlissl discuss whether he will stay on as permanent AD. Said first time meeting with Harbaugh face to face was Monday.
Rich is literally singing the Victors right now. Really fun show.
As I was watching the press conference announcing Jim Harbaugh as the new coach, I started thinking that Mark Schlissel really turned a potential disaster into a home run. This has been said on here before, but I believe it is worth repeating. Getting Harbaugh was a coup of the first order.
Considering Schlissel's lack of experience with athletic programs at major universities where athletics is a big deal, the selection of Jim Hackett as an AD can not be overstated. I suspect that the last thing Schlissel thought about during his interviews and vetting leading up to his appointment as Michigan's new president was termoil in the athletic department.
Kudos to Mark Schlissel.....your appointment of Hackett as the AD was a winner.
