Their source is warchant (which is similar to mblog) which states, "it's been reported by several media outlets" that Frey will be joining the staff. It may happen, but there hasn't been a legitimate source to report this, yet.

If (when these folks get things incorrect--as has every major media outlet that has ever done reporting) this ends up being incorrect I wouldn't be shocked if the information they have is accurate as we speak but ends up being incorrect (e.g. Les Miles to Michigan in 2007).

He's the one saying he doesn't believe it because no site with an journalistic integrity has said anything about it. YOU'RE the one saying that scoop is reliable. It's on YOU to prove its level of reliability, not on him to show that there is some other site which is infallible. 

Not that I'm not saying it might not have a reputation for reliability. But when its "source" is "other media sources" they'e basically saying Chat Sports, which is ridiculous to use as anything other than joke material/

Who decides which site(s) have journalistic integrity when it comes to coaching jobs?

Him, according to him (and you).

All I'm saying is that Football Scoop has the longest and most accurate (relatively speaking) record when it comes to these things.  

How does everyone know they're using Chat Sports as their main source?  Because that's all everyone here has seen and, therefore, no one else could have more and/or better sources that just happen to agree?

And as far as logical validity is concerned, just b/c Football Scoop happens to get one wrong here and there, does that mean they aren't credible?  Because "if ever incorrect, then no credibility" is the basis for journalistic integrity, then no source has integrity.

I see football scoop as the cleanest shirt in the dirty shirt pile that is coaching carousel news.

What I see is a lot of maize and blue colored glasses dismissing this as garbage b/c it's not confirmed by the AP, Reuters, CNN, and Brian Cook.

Football Scoop says flat out that all its sources are confidential, yet I find it interesting that everyone here assumes their source is Chat Sports b/c a) Chat Sports is garbage, b) Chat Sports reported something we don't like, and therefore c) anyone who reports something similar is garbage.

What if Chat Sports said climate change is real?  Pfft, chat sports, now let's burn some fossil fuels!

Not many position coaches make that much. He likes to turn HS TEs into OTs so that's a natural fit that Frey may like. I'm not sure that giving him even more players to coach is really a promotion. If he aspires to be an OC, experience coaching different positions should be a plus.

Which makes this very believable and wold not expect Harbaugh to get in his way due to that fact. Hopefully, harbaugh pulls a don brown and not a pep hamilton replacement.
