Cue the all your coaches are belong to us shirts.
Butch Jones to Cinci
bad for CMU
Wow this is actually kind of weird, it's like a cycle.
I just talked to a friend in the athletic department at CMU, who thought Butch was going to stay. They offered him something around $400k and $200k in potential bonuses, which is pretty good for CMU.
If this is true, as a fan I don't like it, but he deserves it.
This just in!
Chuck Martin was just named CMU's next head coach!
CMU should try to hire Chuck Martin if that's even a possibility.
Great minds, my friend. Great minds.
that's funny... you guys do too!
I hate you Cincy :(
and his glorious smile thank you, Cincinnati.
is reporting that Les Miles has accepted the head coaching position at Central Michigan.
It was going to happen sooner or later either this year or next. Butch did a good job keeping together Kelly's program at Central for the last 3 years and probably saw things were gonna be different next year.
His stock is definitely as high as it ever will be at CMU and this is a good move on his part as much as I hate to say it. Should be interesting to see how he does at Cincy. I don't think he'll go farther up after this move, but maybe there'll be a program willing to take a chance on him in a couple years...
Dang Central is on the wrong end again, but you can't blame Butch. Strike while the iron is hot. The Chips are going backwards next year without LeFevour.
Looks like Cincy is opening up a rather nice pipeline in Michigan.
Butch Jones for ND coach in 2014!
Jones should be careful if he doesn't coach CMU in their bowl game the Cincy fans might egg his house :S
+1 to you.
I hope CMU continues to have success. It's nice to watch schools with such a huge financial disadvantage be competitive with the richer ones.
I wonder who'll replace him?
CMU couldn't afford Charlie's breakfast or lunch food per diem. Let alone dinners 1, 2 and 3.
Charlie Weis was wondering why it took Taco Bell so long to come up with the idea of 4th meal. He's been doing it all his life.
