Western Michigan University Coach P.J. Fleck has announced he’ll leave the Broncos for the Minnesota Golden Gophers next year.
Fleck led what John U. Bacon, Michigan Radio sports commentator, called a “dormant” team to a successful 13-1 season. The Broncos were the only team, other than Alabama, to enter the bowl games undefeated.
If you don’t know of many coaches from the Minnesota program, Bacon said there’s a reason for that.
“Minnesota is now one of the Big Ten’s graveyards, frankly, and no one leaves this program alive,” he said. “So I think P.J. Fleck just made a big mistake.”
