Gopher head football coach P.J. Fleck has reported as a candidate for the vacant head football coaching job at the University of Tennessee. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today. He says it is possible that Fleck is a candidate there but he thinks Flecks wants to stay in the mid-west and may likes the idea of not having the pressure that would come with a job like Tennessee.
The Gopher men's basketball team opened their season with a dominating 85-50 win over Cleveland State at Williams Arena Tuesday night. Minnesota made 13-29 from 3-point range including Payton Willis hitting 5-8.
The University of Minnesota has extended the contract of Gopher football coach P.J. Fleck through 2023. The extension will become official pending approval from the Board of Regents at its December meeting. Terms of the contract extension are not immediately available.
