Mario Cristobal Staying At FIU, According To New York Times, Miami Barber

What if we were to tell you that two very, very different media outlets are now reporting Florida International coach Mario Cristobal will not take the Rutgers Scarlet Knights job, despite reports earlier in the day that he would? Here's Pete Thamel of the New York Times reporting Cristobal stays, which, yes, sure, fine, that makes sense.

From about an hour earlier, however, a well-known local barber to the stars broke the news first:

So there's that. Follow our man for the latest FIU football news, I think? Sadly, this could also mean no more speculation about James Coley leaving FSU for Florida International, meaning we might have to stash our BEHOLD THE GOLD and AWE AT THE PAW recommendations for Coley's Twitter.

If Cristobal and Steve Addazio are now out, we're down to Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty, interim coach Kyle Flood, and ... based on earlier reports. Also, Thamel adds Cardinals assistant John McNulty.
