Makes sense... though were they going to announce this before the end of the season anyway? I mean, next week if they've already made a decision, because the season will be over, and a couple days will have passed since the death of Bo, wouldn't they announce it then?
I don't think there will be an announcement no matter what until after tomorrow's game. Tomorrow the focus should be on McCarney, not a new coach.
Nobody in the program wants to see a new name until tomorrow is over and done with. We will have a great lovefest with DMac and give the thanks that he should get for all he gave. I would think next week at the earliest but the holiday may delay that.
If We're Sitting Here on Dec. 1 Without a Coach- there is a Delay
There is no delay in hiring a coach.
The only reason Harbaugh & Norvell met with Pollard yesterday was their teams are off this weekend. Other coaches that Pollard is interested in most likely have games this weekend & would not want the distraction of an interview during their game week preparation.
My bet is JP will meet with a few other candidates on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday. Probably ID a leading candidate and bring him on campus either next weekend (if his team's season is done) or around Nov. 26/27 if his team has a game next weekend.
It wouldn't surprise me if JP would name a coach early next week, but I think the odds are better that is the last few days of November.
