@DanWetzel Estimated $19 million from Notre Dame, $7 million plus more from KU ... for not working. Charlie Weis remains my hero.
 
@osmattmurschel Remember, Weis is still getting paid by Notre Dame and now Kansas not to coach.

Gary Andersen leaves Wisconsin for Oregon State.  Interesting.

That makes no sense.

Were they that upset Riley left in the first place? I thought this article was spot on from the Oregon State perspective, don't really think it's a home run hire for Nebraska.

Like everyone, they were suprised that Nebraska hired him. But the feelings towards him were very similar to those at UM at the end of Friedgen's tenure....respectful of what he did for that program, but felt like it was time for a breath of fresh air. Riley essentially had a lifetime contract at OSU (he got another year tacked on each time they were bowl eligible) so the only way he was going was if someone hired him away or he retired.

Thing is, while I understand the fan's feelings (being a MD fan who was ready to move on from Fridge) I don't know that OSU can do better than Riley. He had his shortcomings for sure, but few at that level were better at finding under-the-radar talent (because that's the best you'll recruit to Corvallis) and coaching them up. I like the Anderson hire....he's been successful at Utah State and Wisconsin. And when you're Oregon State and you lure a coach away from Wisconsin you naturally feel good. The question is can he get results in a Wisconsin-level conference with Utah State-level facilities?

Report: Rift grows between Kyle Whittingham and Utah’s AD

 

With Whittingham [sic] growing dissatisfaction with Utah and [AD Chris] Hill’s leadership, the Utes’ head coach is actively searching for positions around college football.

 

“The source confirmed speculation that Whittingham has met with administrators at other schools,” Piper continued.

If that’s the case, Whittingham may be a respectable fallback option for the University of Michigan, which is still attempting to lure Jim Harbaugh from the NFL ranks.
