The timing of this is jussstttt a little bit suspicious.
It made all the sense in the world for Minnesota to do it, and Fleck should give plenty of thanks to the people down in Florida State for firing Willie Taggart, who had a 9-12 record in less than two seasons before being canned.
Why? Because Florida State is still one of the biggest jobs in college football, and since that job opened up, more schools who have a great head coach at the end of their deal (like Minnesota) should be fearful that their guy departs and heads to Tallahassee.
The details of Fleck's new contract isn't known just yet, but it'll certainly be bigger than the $3.6 million he received per year in his first deal with Minnesota. Don't be shocked if Fleck becomes one of the highest-paid coaches in college football.
Mike Norvell could be next in line for a big payday from the Memphis Tigers thanks to this FSU job opening up, as he's led them to an 8-1 start.
