This topic finally came up yesterday on the sports radio station here in MI. The guy that covers Michigan football in the locker room also hosts a show in the afternoon. He said that it was his understanding from his multiple connections within the program that Kirk was never contacted or considered for the position. This includes a third party, no one contacted him.
I truly believe that the typical delusional hawkeye fan is trying to find some justification for why they are paying for a great coach when they, in actuality, have an average coach...so they ignore the mediocre record and focus on the fact that other big time programs and the NFL want their coach. The reality is that Ferentz is stuck in Iowa City...no one wants him at this moment. He might have had some opportunities after his 3 great years (the only great years he has ever had as a coach), but no longer. Too many losses and too many off the field "issues" over the last several seasons.
Brian Kelly is all smoke and mirrors also...he will not get the job. As I've said before, if Michigan does not have a head coach by the end of the week it means that Les Miles will be offered the job after he is done coaching LSU in the SEC Championship game this Saturday.
I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
