P. J. Fleck Reported To Western MichiganDecember 17th, 2012
Per multiple reports, Western Michigan will hire Buccaneers wide receiver coach P.J. Fleck as its head coach, per MLive.com.
Western Michigan University’s month-long search for its next football coach is over.
The school is expected to hire Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receivers coach P.J. Fleck as its next head football coach on Tuesday, multiple sources have told the Kalamazoo Gazette.
Those sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because the announcement is pending.
This could be a loss for the Bucs in that Fleck, a high-energy, high-octane coach, was close to the Bucs wide receivers and just about every receiver Joe has spoken with raved about Fleck.
Interesting that Fleck would leave an NFL gig for a MAC school.
UPDATE: Per CBSSports.com college football expert Bruce Feldman, the reports are true about Fleck.
