Actually a little surprised to see Fleck's name high on these lists given how this year has gone. That said, if you take him at his word about the fact that being the only D1 school in the state is important, then Texas and Michigan are both out.Texas would be a nice paycheck but holy moly what a demanding fan base! They have no problem recruiting there, they need a excellent X's and O's coach more than anything.
And frankly, the assertion that he will get a Big Time job is insulting. He is in the Big Ten, yes we are not a helmet school but going to a place like Texas really isn't that huge of an upgrade from where he is at right now in spite of what the talking heads will say.
Not impossible that a coach goes from one power 5 to another power 5 but as has been discussed it isn't super common and in leaving here he would be leaving a great situation to go start over at a place with massive expectations.
