Timing seems very strange but not surprised by this at all. It felt like his time at MSU was coming to an end. Will be interesting to see if they have the successor on staff already or if they will have to go hunting.Yeah timing is very weird. Gonna hire someone within?
I don't think it would be a step up at all, and I don't think Fleck would leave MN for MSU. I'm just saying there will be rumors. MSU athletics in general is a current dumpster fire, and any new FB coach would be stuck trying to leap frog OSU, Mich, and PSU. Dantonio benefited from pretty much only having to worry about OSU during his good years.I don't even think that would be a great step up for Fleck
I bet I'm right! I don't believe Fleck would have interest and I don't think it would be a good move for him, and I certainly don't think it would happen. But I didn't post that based on what I think. I simply suggested someone will bring it up.Pretty sure you are wrong
There has been a LOT of speculation about this. MSU went south in a hurry and as their all time best coach he was a difficult guy to fire and although all signs pointed toward he himself not being happy, there was soooooo much money still left on his contract that it had everyone painted into a corner.
This timing is weird, though.
Beyond alleged according to ESPN story.He seemed burned out the last 2-3 years. On occasion it becomes time to hang it up whether due to family obligations, physical or mental ailments, or disillusionment and disagreement with workplace politics and/or management. Dealing with the media circus regarding the staff recruitment of alleged criminals or accused probably didn’t help. Maybe he takes a break and shows up someplace else in a couple years with a fresh start.
There's something about the workaholic types that seem to love using that line after they have has spent much of their life working a job where you sacrifice an unusually high amount of time with your family for work....Hey, none of this stuff has anything to do with the real reason that was announced on ESPN for Dantonio stepping back from the head coaching job: he wants to spend more time with his family.
The "not gonna happen but mentioned" game is a good game to play.LOL, I just heard a talking head on ESPN mention PJ Fleck. Granted, he said he doesn't see that happening, but you could make a drinking game out of whenever PJ gets mentioned regarding a coaching vacancy.
