Florida Atlantic Owls coach Howard Schnellenberger is retiring at the end of the season, you might recall. As this will mean a football coaching job is available, so we should add Mike Leach's name to it somehow. Actually, FAU athletic director Craig Angelos took care of that part himself:
"Randy is a man of integrity, a first-class guy and first-class coach," said FAU athletic director Craig Angelos, who worked at UM when Shannon was an assistant there. "I want to see if he's interested."
Angelos also has a good relationship with Leach: "I would consider Mike," he said.
"It's flattering that there are people talking positively," Leach told Sporting News on Wednesday. "I have not heard from anyone, though."
Schnelly passing the torch to Leach would signal the eternal crowning of the Internet's new favorite college football team.
