Can’t anyone keep a secret anymore!!
From the man that nailed the Lloyd Carr retirement details, Brian at MGoBlog posted the word that Ferentz was offered the gig:
I’ve sat on this a couple days waiting for some third-party corroboration and now I have it: Kirk Ferentz has been offered the Michigan job. The general feeling is he will turn it down out of fidelity to Iowa, in case you were thinking of making a late-night run to Ann Arbor (or Iowa City) Torch & Pitchfork. I do realize that this — unlike the Lloyd thing — is unlikely to ever be publicly acknowledged if Ferentz turns it down, but this comes from someone in a position to know, and how.
Also unconfirmed rumor: I saw Mary Sue C. sneaking out of Brian’s apartment early this morning. And how!
