Navel Gazing on Replacement Coaches

Submitted by Robbie Moore on November 30th, 2010 at 11:35 AM

I personally think RichRod is coming back. But if I'm wrong I think Brandon has a few names in mind beyond Jim Harbaugh. Given that I have far too much time on my hands, I came up with these two names: Dan Mullen, an Urban Meyer protegee, and Al Golden who has accomplished the impossible at Temple. 

I know...I know. Not big names. Not the high impact kind of guy the Michigan job should attract. Well, I would take Bielema right now since he is basically running the Bo formula at Wisconsin to great effect. And who the hell was he before he got hired?  Tressel was a Division 2 head coach for heavens sake! And if you really want to see something, check out Chip Kelly's resume.

#1) Michigan is NOT Jim Harbaugh's 'dream job.'  He wants an NFL job, because him and his brother are so competitive.  SD, SF, Oak and Car (and maybe even Dal and Min) are all going to be fighting over him this off-season.

#2) Dave Brandon is going to be doing absolutely everything he can to convince him to come to Michigan over the next month.

#3) In all likelihood, Rich Rod will be brought back (signing a two year extension after the bowl game), and Greg Robinson will be replaced (along with the 3-3-5).  Ron English is supposedly an early DC candidate.

I just hit refresh and no new threads along the lines of "I think Brandon is thinking X" or "My gut tells me RR is [fired/staying]."

I can't figure out why I can't stay away from this site for more than 5 minutes.  I am like some sort of addict, I think.  I know that I am going to see things like this, that are not pleasant, but I come back for more.

There should be a 12 step program to help people like me avoid the board for more than 12 minutes.

I would prefer more of an established commodity than a young guy at this point

honestly I would rather see chuck martin as the head coach

somebody who was a total winner albeit at a smaller scale

Bielema. I think i am going to put up a poll looking for suggestions for my very own personal thread. I might even label it OT, whether it is or not. Or not.

I agree, run.  But I like the way you think:  DAN MULLEN!  He is probably the hottest coaching candidate for a very high level program aside from Harbaugh right now.

no one has mentioned Barack Hussein Obama ... yet !    I know he's a basketball guy  -  but he does support a college football playoff  ... (I think its actually IN the heathcare bill !)

Go Blue !

...He's established, the "scandal" that resulted in his firing was BS and a case can be made that it was done to the Uni cash on his contract, he's under 50, and he coaches the spread so the offense wouldn't suffer as many transfers.  Albeit, his track record on defenses might be *worse* than Rodriquez though he did recruit some surprisingly highly rated defensive recruits out of Texas, which is somewhat surprising considering the amount of fishing for that talent occurs in Texas.
