According to Fox 2 Detroit's Jennifer Hammond:
Yeah the had it covered last time?
Did you miss the part where fox2 released a story that was found to be unfounded and pure speculation?
Just like RR was fired Tuesday. Not saying it's necessarily wrong but I have no reason to trust them.
Also, let's drop the CC tag since every board post will now have it. I could start a thread titled mangled animal carcass and we'd end up talking about the potential of Charlie Weis coming here...
This could just mean they are interviewing tomorrow?
/Praying to that sweet merciful baby Jesus we have a shot to land this guy.
Also, I think any talks would be more like "negotiating" than "interviewing".
it's not happening. i;d bet my journalism career on it
And here I am without a journalism career to wager.
This game sucks.
I would take that over Les Miles...Please tell me that this carcass you speak of has ties to Michigan and at least a small coaching resume.
gives spread and shred a new meaning.
Is the Gruden, Tirico, Jaworski team doing the NC monday night? It would explain the plane in 'zona
I believe they are. Don't read to much into it.
I dunno about the other two, but Gruden is
Yes Tirico and Gruden are calling the game on Espn radio
Unless it was about a mangled whale carcass. Or maybe a water buffalo.
It can't get any worse than it already is for the M Nation, can it? From what has happened today on recruiting front it's put me over the edge.....until we find a coach I'll jus crawl back into my hole
I am living in a discount tent on the field in Kezer Stadium, wishing death to the 49ers until this all gets resolved if you care to join me (it's right accross the street from Kezar Pub, so we can still catch the UM-KU game tomorrow).
Weis is a candidate? Where'd you hear this? Sources man!
He lost ten pounds and is now going by the name "Brady Hoke"
I love that the CC tag caught on. I agree that the time has come for it to fade away, but it was cool that everyone tried to be considerate and use the tag all these weeks. Sorry I continued to hammer away in those threads regardless - I regret being a d-ck.
We need to start tagging things "CS" for Coaching Search
CS= Coaching Search since we already know theres a Coaching Change, no? whatever
I can only dream of bringing my own Maized out Chucky to the Big House
The "I Haz Ur Hed" Chucky toys. Rated E for everyone.
EDIT: Also, comes with pull cord that includes catching sayings such as.
"I fucking hate your sweater vest".
So many conflicting pictures in your post. This might be the only time you ever see Mr. Rogers and Chucky side by side.
This can't be true!
Some other guy's twitter said Les Miles was already a done deal!
I think this is bullshit as well.
Two warning flags already:
1) source if fox2 news. Yeah, totally above-board with their reporting on the situation so far.
2) Used the hash tag #takeitwithagrainofsalt. I think that says it all.
If DB is not interviewing, I would be concerned. I hope this is true, motion creates emotion.
If it's wrong, it's wrong, but this is the first time, I think, that I've heard his name come up outside of people's, and my own, wishlists. Gruden, as many have mentioned is a student of the game and has spent time learning the spread offense to a point where I'm sure he could at least incorporate it to a degree, hopefully that would mean Denard stays, plus you know Gruden would love Denard and Devin, "My two qb's, now these guys, they're gamers!" Then on the defensive side of the ball, we'd be taken care of as well. He's been itching to get back into coaching and this job could be right up his alley.
But if he's going to take a job it makes some sense (i.e. get ready to watch me talk myself into the dream).
He's said a midwest college job like ND, UM, or OSU would be great. He seems to have looked hard at OSU even when he was an NFL head coach with the Raiders. If you are looking at those jobs, Kelly is at ND at least another 3 years and Tressel is locked in at OSU (and even if he leaves would you really want to follow that). Money should be legit. Just heard NFL guys talking about how owners don't want to give personnel control to coaches and this is why Gruden/Cowher haven't come close to taking another job. He's looked into and studied the hot offense in college football. At Michigan his name alone unifies a disgruntled fanbase. The team is set up for immediate success with 18 starters coming back and expectations are low after three (more than that in my mind) painful years. If he beats MSU and wins 9 games, how much love would he be getting? If he beats OSU and/or has a better record he's an instant legend. We also look like we'll be offering comparable money to NFL teams (maybe not what he could get, but pretty high).
Also, Jaws is a douche.
So yeah, I realize I have officially become "ND fan" but I don't care. I would rather believe for a few more days if the only other option is embracing Hokeamania.
If he comes here, wins nine games and beats MSU, I will stop using words, but will communicate only in grunts that sound like "GROO-DUN."
Michigan fans would actually be excited about the hire.
I think a decent amount would be, but there's no guarantee of him uniting the fanbase. He would be met with a lot more skepticism than you think.
Not a surprise after the last few years, but hopefully Dave Brandon gives a shot to prove it.
we're all retarded if we don't share your opinion. *roll eyes*
Having said that, whoever is the coach, I will support.
I think the large majority of the fanbase would be behind him. I don't think it's very likely to happen, though.
Let this happen. Your pops knows we need it. Gruden!
on why Gruden would be a good hire, and man would I love to have him. There is always a part of me that tends to go back to wanting a guy that will be here for the long haul. Gruden would be great, but how long would he really be interested in staying. If it is for a while, then by all means come on down Gruden, but I don't believe that is the case. I want DB to do his due justice in finding the next University of Michigan Football coach that will bleed maize and blue until his career is over (i know this is a big wish, but man would it be great).
I get the feeling DB doesn't want us to go all-out spread (spread-eagle?) in the Richrod/Oregon finesse sense. I get the feeling he wants to veer back toward the power game. A hybrid that suits both Denard and the B10 style. Like Miss State or LSU, for example.
She just tweeted again, linking a story in which Gruden's dad says he'd be good for the Cleveland Browns. Probably nothing to see here.
The story is from Cleveland.com, I feel like the dad would say to Annarbor.com that he would be great for the mich job. I'm not going to count on this rumor being remotely true. But at least its word that DB may actually be doing something.
I have a very hard time believing that Chucky would go to a place where Holmgren's word is the law. Gruden wants control. He will have none of that in Cleveland.
since the early 90s... Would he fit back into the college game? I do think his NFL cachet would help recruiting as much as Les Miles's college clout would, perhaps even more.
Carroll had been out of college coaching since 1983. If Weis and Wannstache can recruit (and both were very good), Gruden can sign every blue-chip in 10 states.
simply because it gives me something to do with my Saturday while sitting in the midst of a northwest Indiana snowstorm.
