Could Coach Brown be leaving?
As you know, this Blog is a great fan of Coach Don Brown. The Blog likes his football, his recruiting and his emphasis on academics. Coach Brown has stated UMass could be a place he could retire in (at?). The UMass Football Blog hopes he does just that.
But some domino's may fall soon. There has been speculation that Coach Wannstedt at Pittsburgh must win tonight's Navy game to escape the ax. The game is on ESPN tonight.
If Wannsteadt goes, one of the top coaches that should be considered for the Pittsburg job is Mark Whipple. Whipple's son was a walk-on QB for Pitt, but is not on the current roster. He was also the former QB coach for the Steelers.
Rumor has it that Whipple did not get the Boston College job because he wanted his own set of assistant coaches, including Brown as Defensive Coordinator, and BC wanted to keep most of the current staff.
If Whipple should get the Pitt job, this Blog would think he would offer to Brown.
UPDATE: Pitt did indeed loose to Navy.This article says it will cost Wannstead his job.
