Tiller Moves Up the Ranks of the Football Rumor Mill
With all the coaching hirings and firings taking place the last few weeks, rumors upon rumors have been spread across Internet message boards. One site that is very good, The Football Rumor Mill, posts their coaching hot seats. Purdue's Joe Tiller has moved up to the charts as the Boilermaker faithful feel there needs to be a change made.
There has been a ton of chatter among Purdue's higher ups that if Tiller doesn't win their bowl game, he will be shown the door. PU's el foldo down the stretch, plus their Old Oaken Bucket loss to Indiana at the end the regular season also left a bad taste in AD Morgan Burke's mouth. I wonder if they would replace Tiller with Defensive Coordinator Brock Spack? One could only hope for that Christmas gift!
Here is a snippet of the Rumor Mill's Coaching Hot Seat. To view the whole list, click on the title above.
THE BURNT ASS - Already Fired/Job Open
Phil Bennett – SMU
Lloyd Carr – Michigan (retired)
Karl Dorrell – UCLA
THE SCORCHED HINEY – Firing Seems Likely
Joe Tiller – Purdue
THE TOASTY TUSH – Firing a Definite Possibility
Joe Glenn – Wyoming
Ty Willingham – Washington
Mark Snyder – Marshall
On a side note, doesn't Tiller look like actor/Quaker Oates spokesman, Wilfred Brimley? Maybe Wilfred is thinking he could be the next coach of Purdue, or better yet, he's thinking that Veronica Vaughn is one fine piece of ass!
