All this Harbaugh talk is boring. What if Harbaugh says no? Is Venables on the radar? Cuz this guy has been a DC for a long time. I'm surprised he hasn't been tapped as a coach, and he's a defensive minded coach, which is what Michigan should try. Clearly the Offensive minded coach thing isn't working out like excepted.
As much as everyone seems to throw Brady Hoke under the bus, he is a legitimate candidate for the hypothetical coaching vacancy.
In 2008, he took bottom-dweller Ball State to an undefeated MAC record and national ranking
In 2010, he turned around a mediocre San Diego State team into a solid season including a bowl win with completely understandable and close losses to TCU, Utah, and Mizzou.
In 2011, he would unite the fractured fan base which has created huge program perception problems.
Although Harbaugh is clearly the #1 option, I think there are too many influential alumni/former players who would not support any candidate without ties to the Bo-tree. This vaults Hoke over the Randy Shannons of the world.
Just got a text that Harbaugh said he wasn't going to Michigan. He will stay at STanford if he decides to stay in college, but otherwise is going to the NFL. Has anyone else heard this?
President Coleman has shown in the past that she wants to be the final interview for a new head coach. Last time it was in Toledo, which means media people will be watching 23 and 275 south this time.
She is likely to do an out of town again, which means either flying out of Detroit Metro, driving to Lansing, or driving to Grand Rapids (either to meet or to catch a flight). I think Lansing is unlikely given the sheer number of MSU fans there who would narc in a second.
The team is also required to interview at least one black coach for the job under NCAA affirmative action rules--but I don't know if she would spend her time as part of that process. She may, given her vocal AA support. That would give us two interviews. Likely at different times because it would be a little demeaning for a black interviewee to meet the guy who is really being interviewed at the site.
Anyone seeing any sign of travel from Coleman, this is the thread to post in, please.
Something other than CC to help pass the morning.
A great honor for the most beautiful football stadium anywhere.
