"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Those Are The Wrong Coaches
Right, coaching shuffle after a disastrous 7-5 season. This is not what we had in mind... per WDFN:
- Terry Malone has taken a job with the Saints.
- Ron English will be the Bears' DB coach.
- Mike DeBord will be the new offensive coordinator.
Per a reliable source:
- Scot Loeffler is interviewing with the Patriots next week.
Remember that stock tip about Ann Arbor Torch & Pitchfork? Yeah.
We'll see exactly what happens when the dust settles--sports talk radio is prone to error, after all and Loeffler doesn't even have a job offer yet--but suffice it to say that if you told me to name four coaches I didn't want Michigan to lose, the list would have been Loeffler, English, Malone, and Steve Stripling. How Herrmann remains bulletproof in all of this is a mystery. Carr has no problem guillotining any offensive coordinator who looks at him funny, but anyone on the staff with a ridiculous mustache is off limits, Gittleson and Herrmann most prominently.
For now: goddammit. Hockey. Must go. Will inform when I know more. Send hot tips here.
