Would Mattison go to OSU ?

There is actually a post over at Bucknuts hoping that Michigan cleans house this week so that they can hire Greg Mattison as their Defensive Coordinator. At first I laughed at this idea,  but I know Mattison worked for Urban Meyer back in Florida and are probably still friends.

I think there is a good chance this might happen if/when Hoke gets fired and if the new Coach does not retain him. OSU seems unhappy with their defense and what better way to solve their problem and stick it to us at the same time.

I am hoping he goes back to the NFL or decides to retire rather than ending up in Columbus

Honestly, the defense didn't play that bad today. On that 4th down with 5 minutes left in the 4th if jake ryan had not let him slip through his arms then it would be our ball. Also if the secondary didn't bit so hard then there definitely wouldn't have been a touchdown. While the defense maybe didn't look amazing today, it definitely did enough to keep us in the game.

He seemed to be fairly adamant that he'd only work for Hoke (in college that is), that he considers him a good friend, etc.

Mattison to OSU is pretty far down on my list of concerns re: the football program at this time though, but it would be a compelling side story.

I believe he has grandchildren in the A2 area.  He must be a pretty wealthy man.  So he may just want to retire, stick around, remain a beloved UM football figure while he finally has time for his family.
