From what I saw in the Stanford game is what Michigan needs and that's what they had. So either Gary Patterson or Pat Fitzgerald. Harbaugh looks like a pipe dream...
Until I see Harbaugh with an NFL hat on, that's the coach I want. If he's not the guy, then Patterson would be my next choice.
JIM HARBAUGH ALL THE WAY!!
As an ND fan, its hard to see dickrod go. Hiring Brady Hoke will be the same thing as RR. Failure. I can't figure out if I want to see michigan fail more or actually have a defense. Best bet would be Dan Mullen, especially with offense styles. Next best coach would be Gary Patterson. Successful for a long time, if he gets hired I'd be scared of that defense. Good luck from South Bend skunkbears.
