    That's according to the Twin Cities ESPN station.

    Maybe the next coach can find a way to get Mr. Brewster on the staff next season. Not as an important part of gameplanning mind you, but he would kill it on the recruiting trail. The guy spent has spent a fair amount of time in Colorado too.

    Yep, and he has a son (Clint), who was once a 4-star QB recruit out of Mullen, who may be floating around the juco ranks.

    That means he might be available to replace Riddle as TE Coach and Special Teams Coordinator in time for the Texas Tech game. Allsome.

    And why was it again that ours can't be fired too if we get embarrassed by the Boors tomorrow? Looks like Minnie will have a head start in the head coach hunt

    Looks like Purdue is on its way to writing Brewster's pink slip.

    21-9. Only two scores down - still has a chance to stay employed...

    So Minnesota has higher expectations and desire to win more than CU does. Not to state the obvious, but we are an absolute disaster. Unless the new coach can demand some changes from the admin, we're going to be stuck in this position as the laughingstock of the Big XII/Pac-12 for a longgg time

    Nolan's not starting, in fact I think he was banged up in the offseason so they may be redshirting him this year. But yes, coaches with sons who have eligibility = once bitten, twice shy. That Tight Ends/Special Teams idea is too enticing though, and of course it won't happen as Hawk and the Riddler seem determined to go down with the ship.

    Good for Minn for pulling the trigger. Bad move if they are letting him finish out the season as a lame duck. Kick him to the curb Monday morning.

    CU should do the same.

    Someone forward the link to Bohn. Let him see that other schools can make mid season changes.

    I will be rooting as hard as anyone for the Gophers against Penn St. Saturday. Here is hoping for complete blow out and show the CU admin that players can react possitively to a mid-season coaching change.

    Minny deserves this. What exactly did they expect when they fired Mason... Knute Rockne?

    Mase was average, but that is pretty good given Minny's recent history. His only problem was that he scheduled too softly... so they always started out 4-0, only to go 2-6 in conference and head off to the Detroit Bowl against a MAC team.

    Bohn doesn't have the balls to can him now, we are stuck with coach simple jack til the end of the season.

    Yup, it's official. He's gone as of Sunday. "Some programs want to keep coaches that don't fit and drive their programs deeper down, game after game. Minnesota decided their recruits and players deserved to know Gophers Football was going to be about winning, not losing. Especially to the worst teams in their conference."

    The more I read about this, the more amazed I become. Minny gave him a controversial extension after last season through the 2013 season (his original contract ran through the 2011 season), but DECREASED the buyout. He is walking away with a $600,000 buyout for the remaining years on his contract. That's it.

    BTW, his overall compensation is very similar to Hawkins' compensation.

    Yep. I wonder if we tried that. We could have extended him through 2015 at $200k per year as a buyout. It would have helped recruiting while reducing the buyout. I don't know if this was presented and rejected by Hawkins and his people or if Bohn and his people were too incompetent to attempt this.

    Let's see, Brewster was 15-30 overall record at a school that has less of a winning tradition than us, yet they pulled the trigger, at midseason no less.

    Who said this quote? Was it from the UMinn athletic department? I would be shocked, because whoever said it took a blatant shot at Northwestern and Purdue. It's kinda funny, but completely classless... especially coming from Minny, who has been the worst football program in the Big Ten of late.

    That formula has worked for the nubs for about 80 years. Of course, they won more than 25% of their conference games...

    The similarities between Hawk and Brewster are frightening.

    Brewster's first year: 1-11. Lost to Bowling Green, Florida Atlantic, and North Dakota State. I don't care how empty the cupboard is, good coaches don't lose to teams like that.

    2nd year: started off very well, 7-1 actually. Unfortunately he ended up 7-6 including a 55-0 loss to Iowa.

    3rd year: Pretty up and down 6-7 year which included a 16-13 win over North Dakota State. Also a win over Air Force in case any there are any big Calhoun fans out there.

    4th year: Currently 1-6 with losses to the likes of: South Dakota and Northern Illinois. Close win over Middle Tennessee to start the season.
