“I am proud of the dedication and commitment exhibited by the coaching staff and student-athletes who have represented the University of Michigan football program over the last three seasons. While I am disappointed to depart Ann Arbor before we were able to reach the level of success we had in our sights, I am confident that the players who remain have the potential to do great things and to return the Wolverines to greatness. I would like to thank our fans and our student body for their tremendous support. There is great passion for Michigan football and I have made lifelong friends through this experience.”

You want to send our ex-coach a internet forum of people saying "thanks and good luck"?

Or maybe we could all get him a card and sign it. Or all bake him some cupcakes. All these things sound equally as pathetic.  The man knows there are fans that will still root for him. Suggesting sending him the opinions or random internet commenters makes me want to punch myself in the throat.

I really wish I could neg you for being a jerk.  This will have to do: 

There is no need to be a dick to a fellow fan who is just making a nice suggestion.  If that sort of thing actually makes you want to punch yourself in the throat, I feel sorry for you since I would suspect you lead a pretty miserable life.  Save the angry comments for people who actually deserve them.

Best of luck coach! I have always been a suporter and fan, and I can't imagine how difficult it is to operate when the whole word is against you. Let's hope that Denard and any relevant defensive players stay while Michigan football is in this transition period.

If he were to go to Pitt, I would be able to see a lot more of him than when he was at Michigan. (PA citizen right now). The bummer part is that I saw a story on ESPN (i know) that said Pitt was not including him in the coaching search. Maybe bad blood from the backyard brawl days? I also heard from a talking head that he might sit out a year, recollect himself from the abuse in AA and then move forward. Can't blame him there. The rumor mill out of Pitt is spitting out Tom Bradley (PSU D coordinator and Asst. HC) as the leading candidate.

True. Low cost is an advantage here in Pensyltuckybama. No jobs here either, trying to move back to Michigan (I know, no job there either, but I have family and if I am going to be unemployed, at least I can be unemployed in Michigan and soak up the sport teams I love). I am surrounded by hillbillies, and rednecks that Rival West Virginia and backwoods Mississippi.

a great idea to move to the sticks, right?  I live in Pittsburgh low cost of living, great jobs, even better schools, affordable housing, low crime, hell we even have grocery stores.  Keep your negative thoughts about the crappy area you live in tyo yourself, it's your choice einstein....
