P.J. Fleck to be next Head Coach at Western Michigan

Former Northern Illinois Huskie P.J. Fleck to be head coach for the division rival Western Michigan Broncos.


Per the Kalamazoo Gazette

Almost a year ago, P.J. Fleck was anointed offensive coordinator for the Northern Illinois Huskies for one single day.

Apparently the role didn't suit P.J. and after Greg Schiano was hired for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers job, he took over as position coach for the Wide Receivers.

Now he's ready for a head coaching job at a division rival that NIU will play every year? It sure will build up excitement for playing the Broncos every year. Bill Cubit sure couldn't do anything himself in that regard.

P.J. Fleck is regarded as one of the best and most-beloved players in NIU history. Fleck played at NIU from 1999-2003 and excelled as a senior as NIU became one of the first teams to be a potential BCS Buster. He was also a WRs coach and recruiting coordinator from 2007-09.

Considering that Rod Carey is the new head coach after being promoted from offensive coordinator, P.J. may have made a mistake here. Anyways, we will always love you outside of one day a year now Mr. Fleck.
