Michigan Thursday: Will WMU Fish Out of Jimmy's Pond?

When I heard PJ Fleck was leaving for the Golden Gophers, my first thought was which Michigan assistants would interview for the Western job.   

It seems that Michigan has two assistants that are or could be in the interview circle.  

#1 is Tyrone Wheatley:  Coach Wheat is known as a great recruiter and RB coach.  He is a legend in Detroit, has NFL playing experience, and also coached in the NFL.   I think this would be an interesting choice but his lack of a coordinator role might make this jump to big of one.

#2 is Tim Drevno who of course is Michigan's OC and just signed a 5 year $1M a year contact with Michigan.  Tim has been up for other head coaching roles and I believe would be a serious candidate if Western interviews him.   I think Tim will leave Ann Arbor in a couple of years for a head coaching job anyway, so why not WMU?

Another guy I would have looked at is Pep Hamilton if I was making the decision for Western. With him taking the Michigan job (even though it hasn't been officially released), I think this is probably a long shot.

Western is a much better job now that they are ranked and just played in the Cotton Bowl.   I wouldn't be surprised if they paid a coach over $1M a year, which is pretty high for a MAC school.  

You would think Western would need to move fast with signing day a couple of weeks away, but it seems that are taking their time to make the right decision.

  • Jimmy and his wife welcomed another child on Wednesday.  His name is John Harbaugh, which is obviously named after his famous Uncle.  Congratulations to coach and his entire family!

  • Jimmy is visiting WR Nico Collins today and using his 1 and only in home visit.   Today is the first day after the dead period. 

  • Michigan Basketball dropped another Big Ten game last night.  I have little to no interest in this team right now.

No matter who WMU hires, they are in for a huge let down, I expect. PJ took just about the entire recruiting class with him to MN. Terrell, Davis, Henry, Thompson all graduating... Its going to take a couple years.

There is a serious talent rebuild needed and the bar was set pretty high.

Letting someone down and then hoping for the best for ourselves is unfair.

I am Karen a single parent at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in January and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it successfully, I was introduced to a legit loan lender who gave me a loan of 80,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mrs Fiona Farrell ( She doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about her and also i want God to bless her more. You can contact her through her email (
