Wonder if he will still coach the Gophers for the bowl game?

One article I read in pioneer press never heard of them so i am not sure how reliable they are basically said leaving Minnesota less than a week before playing Auburn in outback bowl.

Everything I’ve seen on Twitter implies he won’t be there. He must have heard DB and MD are playing.

I agree he will not coach but no official word from P.J. Fleck yet, that I have seen.

ouch a week before

Usually we, as fans, hear things well after teams/players. Was likely in the works for some time.

Who calls the plays for the Gophers?  Will it make any difference? 

I would think their OC, particularly since Penn State is getting them as their OC and QB coach. I wouldn’t think PSU would hire him if he had been the OC at Minnesota in name only, but who knows?

From an August 2019 article:

Fleck’s trust in Ciarrocca is reflected in the freedom he gives him. He allows his veteran coordinator to handle game-planning and play-calling so that he can focus more on game management and running his program with big-picture vision.

If AU loses to the gophers with a new OC, that will be embarrassing but since Minnesota is a big ten team that is not Ohio St., I think you guys will be fine. But then again, Gus is HC and who knows what will happen.

After Minnesota offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarroca left the team for the same position at Penn State, Gophers coach P.J. Fleck told reporters Thursday after the team’s first practice in Tampa, Fla., that wide receivers coach Matt Simon will serve as interim offensive coordinator for the bowl game, while offensive quality control coach Greg Harbaugh will be promoted to interim quarterbacks coach for Wednesday’s 12 p.m. CT matchup at Raymond James Stadium.

"I’ll probably have a little bit of a bigger say, just in terms of helping them through all that,” Fleck told reporters. “But they’re both capable and it’s going to be a great opportunity for both of them. It really is. I trust those guys and if I didn’t think they could do the job, wouldn’t let them do the job."

I think if I was Fleck, I’d be a bit ticked at the timing. He said in his press conference he just found out yesterday. What would one more week matter since recruiting is not a factor any longer?

Now, this is a CEO type of coach.  It will be interesting to see how it turns out.  I believe Auburn would prevail even before the OC left for PSU, so I don’t think it will make a difference.  A big opportunity for the their coaches, though.

If Alabama fans do what Alabama fans do outside of a playoff venue they do in one, that will be embarrassing, but since since Michigan is a big ten team that is not Ohio State, Alabama fans will still be embarrassing. But then again, Harvey claims he is broke so he probably won't make the trip, but Alabama fans will still Alabama fan it up and be embarrassing.

In other words, W/L/D Alabama fans will still be embarrassing, we know that will happen.
