Should Fleck have waited a year?
Seems to me he could've done much better than Minnesota.

Yea. He may have just committed career suicide.

His stock probably wouldn't be any higher than it is now. If he was looking to get out, he screwed up by not taking one of the better jobs available before the Cotton Bowl.

He's in the weaker of the two Big 10 divisions, so he may be able to have some success at Minn.

I think he should have but if he kicks butt at Minnesota bigger name jobs will be available. Places like a&m and tennessee have a really good chance of being open next year.

re: Should Fleck have waited a year?
In the end, I say "no." I do think he should have put his name in a few months ago and said screw the bowl game. But, I commend him for staying. Minnesota opened up under weird circumstances and he is late to the recruiting game this year, but it would be impossible for me not to jump from $800k to $3.7 million in a great city with a new stadium, in a division he can win. I don't think ND would fit him if it opens. I suppose Tenn and A&M are better jobs, but it's not easy to win at those places and I think he prefers the midwest.

re: Should Fleck have waited a year?
I think Minnesota is a pretty good spot for him right now. Obviously none of the bigtime schools thought he was a viable option this year. So, he does the smart thing and steps up to a low/mid-tier P5 school in an area he already recruits that has potential, but not high expectations. If he turns them in to a contender in the Big 10 within a 2-3 years, he'll have his pick of job openings.

Maybe. But he sure seems convinced that he made the right move. Best of luck to him. If he's a happy Gopher, I'm happy for him.

He's a glorified motivational speaker, he's lucky to be at a program of that profile.

Do we know how many teams actually interviewed Fleck this year?

That's his neck of the woods. If he can win there, he could go anywhere.

He could have.

Maybe he thinks he's sitting on a house of cards at Western Michigan and he needs to cash in now.

Or perhaps(and this is what I believe) he is supremely confident in his ability to turn any program around. If he has this team winning 10 games a year, in 3 years he will be the hottest name in college football and will have his pick of jobs.

By the way, when people are trying to project what kind of coach has the type of attributes to challenge Saban's throne, it's the type of coach that has options but will go to Minnesota.

This was a terrible decision by him. The program is in disarray. The Washington Post had an article that talks about all of turmoil in the Minnesota athletic department.

He has at least another job leap in him beyond Minnesota, assuming he is successful in the land of the lakes.

Dude sure shoots a lot of bull, but is one high energy guy.
