This just came through the grape vine from a couple different sources. No link, not definite.
This would be a relief for UM; it would mean that we keep our OC and can continue recruiting without additional distractions.
I'm surprised he would take that job, it doesn't seem like much of an upward move for him.
USF is in a top-heavy BCS conference. That enough makes it a "better job" to a guy like Skip; he's also in a mega-conference with a championship game, the BE has eight teams and you don't have to deal with a rotating schedule that forces you to be aware of a dozen conference opponents over the course of a few years.
Its in a BCS conference and in fertile recruiting territory. They also probably offerred him more money.
Big break for Michigan, even though it had a good feeling he Magee was going to be with Michigan next year
Does this mean we are witnessing the emergence of some sort of Michigan Loving God?
Don't wake up the Michigan Hating God. He's sleeping after two straight years of very hard work. Let it sleep for another decade or two.
Lou Holtz was actually saying "You ass Heff!" to some reporter, most likely in response to being kicked out of the Playboy Mansion for rowdiness. However it came out as "You Eths Eff." Someone put 2 and 2 together and unfortunately got 5. Happens all the time.
Fun Fact: Lou Holtz doesn't drink water. Swear to god it was on ESPN. Which also means Les Miles is our current coach but, you know, tomato tomato let's call the whole thing off.
I believe he said he doesn't drink it because it doesn't have any taste which is amazing to me because now I wonder what he uses to replenish spittle.
Lou reminds me of Milton from Office Space. Imagine him saying "I believe you have my stapler" or Milton saying "I believe Notre Dame can run the table this year."
"No. 1, it has no taste, No. 2, if it does have taste, it ain't good for ya."
The sad thing is that I don't like water either. I like drinking something that will add to my overall meal experience rather than just washing food down. I share something in common with Lou Holtz...not good. It could be worse though...I could be from East Liverpool, OH as well. In which case, I would light myself on fire.
works for me
Hell yes! As a USF alumni and a born and raised Michigan fan this is great on both fronts. Michigan gets to keep Magee which is awesome while USF makes a great hire. I was a big fan of Leavitt, but I really think Skip Holtz can take this team to the next level.
I'd say Mike Leach is an ECU lock...He would be able to say he was literally a Pirate.
Either that or he could coach the Raiders when they fire Cable. That would be awesome...bet they wished they drafted Crabtree now.
A Skip off the old Schlock....
Now Magee can take the ECU head job.
Fish fuck in water. Enough said. But it is funny to listen to Lou.
USF is a gigantic school in prime recruiting country and a BCS conference that has already committed $1.5-2 million to a new potential coach. Skip makes $655,000 right now and his buyout is only 100k. I don't quite think this is a lateral move for him.
Coach poach possibilities?
I'm pretty schure Lou isch taking the USchF job, not Schkip.
This is great. I hope Skip Holtz has success, while Brian Kelly struggles at ND. Then in say 3-4 years, the Domers will be angry with Kelly, fire him, tear the program down and hire Holtz. Excellent.
Brian Kelly is doomed to fail in South Bend!!
this all but guarantees a South Florida vs Notre Dame BCS Title game...or at least that's what Lou Holtz will predict. Remember, I called it first!
'East Carolina coach Skip Holtz spoke to reporters in Orlando this morning and said rumors of him taking the USF coaching job are not true "at this time."'
Hopefully he takes it, but it looks like he hasn't yet. I guess we may have to wait a little longer before we can breathe easy.
