My point being that everybody I know with even the slightest interest in U of L football is asking anybody who might have once sat next to Tom Jurich at Lake Forest CC’s 19th Hole if they have a clue who Louisville’s next coach is going to be.
Remember now, those of you playing along at home, Steve Kragthorpe is still the head coach. And he’s got a mighty handsome buyout that will need to be paid. If, that is, TJ pulls the plug after the season.
At today’s news conference, U of L’s the-buck-stops-here Offensive Coordinator/ Burgeoning Comedian gave this answer to a question that actually broached the subject everybody wants the answer to: “I have no idea what my future holds, I have no idea what tomorrow holds. I’m planning on being here. I’m not going any place voluntarily, so if it’s involuntarily — I can’t answer that question.”
Allow me to translate that into RealSpeak for you: “Show me the money!!!”
Frankly, who can blame him.
Anyhow, my reliable source, who has reappeared after going underground for way too long, is talking like a man who knows there will be a change. He confirms what I wrote weeks ago, that the new coach will be somebody not mentioned yet. Even the names I’ve tossed out. He says it will be somebody young, energetic — a diamond in the rough — with lots of recruiting connections in the state of Florida.
And it will not be, ahem, Jon Gruden.
