However, a source with direct knowledge of the University of Minnesota’s search has told me that the Gophers will announce PJ Fleck as their new head coach tomorrow morning. Fleck is expected to talk to his Western Michigan team this evening, so expect the announcement to start leaking in the next few hours.
Fleck would be a major hire, and I would be interested to see if he tries to bring any of his Western Michigan recruits with him.
Fleck is a bit over the top for my taste, but college football coaches have to be a different breed, and the antics Fleck uses seem to work. As long as he wins and doesn’t tweet idiotic things, I’m on board.
