Ferentz to Michigan?
|The rumor mills have been churning over the weekend, and now it appears there may be some actual news coming soon. Chris Landry of Fox Sports Radio reported yesterday that Iowa's Kirk Ferentz was Michigan's #1 option to fill their coaching void with Cincinatti's Brian Kelly their second choice. He claimed that Michigan would go hard after Ferentz and then turn to Kelly if Ferentz showed no interest. LSU's Les Miles is more of a fallback option for Michigan, as they know he will take the job if their top two targets do not.|
Also yesterday, Brian Cook over at MGoBlog reported that Kirk Ferentz was offered the Michigan job. Late last night he also posted some more 'rumors' that Ferentz has indeed accepted the job with an announcement expected in the next 24-48 hours. It should be noted that these are rumors, the last of which were taken by Brian from an Iowa message board. They are not to be taken as facts, but it should also be mentioned that MGoBlog was the first source to correctly report Lloyd Carr's retirement.
