Larry Fedora, who probably took a lot of crap over his last name when he was a kid, managed to overcome that and become a hot commodity type head coach in the college ranks, and has produced some prolific offenses.â†µ
So naturally, someone, somewhere, linked him to the now-vacant Gophers head coaching job, going so far as to say he was on the U of M campus being interviewed.â†µ
Uh, about that. Unless he has a twin, or can be in two places at one time, he wasn’t. He was in Mississippi, on the Southern Mississippi campus, where he is currently the head coach, about as far away from Minnesota as one could be and still be in the continental United States, or CONUS for you military types.â†µ
So why would anyone make the connection? The only thing I can think of is the Southern Miss. is the alma mater of current Vikings QB Brett Favre.â†µ
So, the Gophers head coaching search continues **coughMIkeLeachcough**.
