Seems like every day I say this and likely will again, who is not being considered or interested? Good news is some new interesting names are being tossed around.
Tuesday afternoon Gophers Illustrated listed Gary Barnett and Rick Minter (Notre Dame Defensive Coordinator) as the front-runners for the Gopher football head coach job.
Gary Barnett is a good coach and recruiter but he has had some high profile issues with his players. I am not a fan of the way he dealt with them and the media. Maybe if he signed some sort of clause that would give us the money back should we have any problems, then maybe.
Rick Minter, I had not yet heard his name mentioned. He would be another coordinator that I find interesting. He comes from a quality, ethical program.
Tuesday afternoon one of the guys on KFAN stated that Paul Chryst (Wisconsin Offensive Coordinator) was no longer in the running. No reason given or which party said it.
Star Tribune has this, Coaching rumors. We can add 2 more coaches to the list:
-Mike Haywood (Notre Dame Offensive Coordinator) has been here before.
-Charlie Strong (Florida Assistant Head Coach)
-Art Briles (Houston Head Coach) declined an interview.
