Someone needs to tell their delusional fan base that it is over. The Michigan job is not what it was 20 years ago. No body wants to go there and live in the Bo's shadow.
uuuh no job is what it was 20 years ago. the best jobs are at places with modest expectations because even the "small" programs are now paying their coaches millions. that's why you see coaches rejecting the traditional powers in favor of remaining at places like Rutgers, Wake Forest, West Va, South Florida, Louiville, etc.
think about it - if you are a talented coach, why move to a pressure cooker at a salary of 3-4 million dollars and little job security when you can stay put with little to moderate pressure, make 1-2 million, sleep well at night, enjoy your family, and perhaps make a name for yourself by achieving something that has never before been achieved at your school?
simply put, when the smaller programs began to put dollars behind their programs, that's when the coaches began to look differently at job openings at the traditional powers.
