Minnesota
Gophers would make first call to Dungy

As of Tuesday morning, Tim Brewster is still Minnesota’s head coach. But if there is a change, speculation will immediately focus on two former Gophers quarterbacks, Tony Dungy and Marc Trestman. And count on it — Dungy will be the first person contacted, as he was after the Gophers fired Glen Mason. People close to Dungy, who coached the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl championship, feel he would be more inclined toward the NFL than college if he were to try coaching again. But Dungy is different than most big-time coaches, and has a special affinity for his alma mater. A $5 million annual contract from a NFL team might not be as important to Dungy as the challenge to make his alma mater relevant in football. – Pioneer

I'd be all over that too if I were a Gophers fan.

I can't stand that man. Please hire him so he can be off NBC and I never have to hear him talk again.

We're pretty good at getting coaches fired. They lose to us, they get fired. Only a matter of time now for Brewster.

Starting to take it personally.

They don't have to lose to us. Jim Leavitt beat us soundly in a bowl game and the next day USF fired him and Canada instituted a nationwide ban on American college football.

That's because Leavitt hit a player and then lied about it for months, not his coaching performance.
