Letter of Recommendation: Donald Trump, apparently friendly with Mike Leach, sent Miami president Donna Shalala a handwritten note on a copy of the Palm Beach Post’s sports section urging her to rectify her 2006 mistake and hire the former Texas Tech coach. Trump wrote: “YOU MADE A BIG MISTAKE WHEN YOU DID NOT TAKE MY ADVICE AND HIRE MIKE LEACH OF TEXAS TECH – LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM SINCE HE LEFT…HIRE COACH LEACH AND YOU WILL BE #1” Choosing between the Donald and the Donna, I went with the Ivanka. Also, the Miami Herald says Jon Gruden is waiting to sift through NFL offers. [Palm Beach Post] [Photo via Getty]
