Per Rivals' Purdue site (which has tended to be pretty credible in the past.)
Apparently, a press conference is coming on monday. If this does happen, it'd be a really really good hire considering the circumstances.
I get Les being interested, by why would Sark even do that when he has the inside track to the Bama OC gig when Kiffin leaves?
Lots of chatter that Bo Pelini is interested in the Purdue job.
As Purdue shops around for a head coach — the Boilermakers fired Darrell Hazell and his 9-33 record on Sunday — it’d be smart to remember that one Bo Pelini is eager to get back to the Big Ten.
“He would definitely be interested in this job,” a source who coached under Pelini told 247Sports this week. “I think he would make a more immediate impact more than any other guy I believe. He would change that culture real quick.”
Purdue could do worse.
They might not be able to do much better. (I can't see Les Miles taking that job).
Having Pelini back in the B10 would be fun and it would be a good hire that would create some buzz for the Boilermakers
Per Purdue's Rivals site (https://purdue.rivals.com/news/darrell-hazell-is-out-as-purdue-s-footbal...):
After managing only a 9-33 record over three-plus seasons, Darrell Hazell is no longer Purdue’s head coach, GoldandBlack.com has learned.
Hazell was fired Sunday, one day after Iowa dominated the Boilermakers 49-35 on Homecoming.
Receivers coach Gerad Parker will be the interim coach. Parker is in his fourth season with the Boilermakers, coming on staff as tight ends coach before moving to coach the receivers last season.
Did anyone see the Purdue BTN preview
looked like a lot of people walking around - no urgency to practice
The hosts were trying to say how much of a nice guy hazell is
talked about the promise he showed at OSU as a recievers coach
Terry Malone (YTTM) is new OC
Wonder if he will get fired during the season or not - my hope is he makes it through the season. Bad look to fire a guy in October for just being bad - he has been bad for 3+ years.
GT AD Mike Bobinski -
not sure if this is a step up from Atlanta to West Lafayette
Any change he gets Paul Johnson to come with him and Purdue runs the triple option?
