Hot Seat No More: Minnesota fired head coach Tim Brewster after the 1-6 Gophers lost to Purdue. Brewster compiled a 15-30 overall record, more crucially a 6-21 record within the Big Ten (higher win percentage than Rich Rod). From AD Joel Maturi: “We have high aspirations for our football program and we are not satisfied with its current direction. The results so far this season have been unacceptable and the program has simply not shown enough improvement over the past three and a half years to continue with the status quo.” Ouch. Still think this job would be perfect for Herm Edwards. [Gopher Sports]
