    Urban Meyer would be a logical phone call...but isn't he more interested in USC potentially?

    There are a half-dozen places thinking Urban will save them at this point.

    That can only be true for one place -- maximum.

    So when Urban turns them down, where else do they go next?

    Firing a coach without having a clean plan for your next step is a bad idea.

    Every impression that I have had from Pollard and the ISU media is that Campbell was *the guy* when Jamie went hunting last time. What is Michigan's plan?

    Not according to this
    https://www.amestrib.com/sports/20181209/football-iowa-state-extends-matt-campbells-contract-through-2024

    "Campbell has been a hot name for other coaching positions the last two years, including jobs like Ohio State and the Cleveland Browns. In his new contract, his buyout is $7 million if he leaves for another job before Feb. 1, 2019. It decreases $1 million annually thereafter."

    no, the buyout for firing is different than the buyout if he leaves.

    the leaving buyout is still really high but not the crazy amount it was after year 2.

    UCLA learned that the hard way with the basketball coaching process. Gee-whiz, that process was a train wreck rubber-necking at car crash.

    Agree but we both know schools like that have irrational fan bases. I was shocked when LSU and Georgia moved on from Miles and Richt but that's the sports world for us.

    that buyout isn’t accurate I don’t believe.. pretty sure it’s $6 mil.. reducing by $1 mil per year

    GarBar is probably crafting extensions and raises for Kurt and Brian as we speak.

    again, the 19 million is the buyout if we fire him. $19 million, the balance of the contract.

    $6 million is the buyout if Michigan or ND hires him.

    As a Michigan fan, I hope they realize this. This isn’t the 80s or 90s anymore. Only 3 programs are consistently elite and 3 is stretching it. 10 win seasons are likely a couple plays away from championships so they need to ride with him as it’s more likely he gets over the hump than it is the next guy gets through the transition and does it. Besides, what does it say about Michigan that Harbaugh can’t do it? It indicates to me that it’s a Michigan problem. Maybe it’s academics, maybe it’s true that they refuse to play the games others play. I happen to think it’s a combination of those things plus the fact that it’s really hard to win when you’re this far north. Don’t give me Notre Dame either. If they played Michigan’s schedule the last few years, they’d do no better.

    Michigans wasn’t a whole lot better. There isn’t a lot of confidence in Manuel following the b-ball search. There didn’t seem to be a plan. I’d think Rhule and Campbell are up there with some ridiculous former NFL coach, a current NFL coach, someone on the staff like Partridge, and then someone like Norvell which is what they likely end up with.

    We can’t afford to not pay him. Do the math. Just increasing season tickets by $50, which people won’t even balk at at this point, gets you the money.

    I don't recall this. I thought JH was their target from the outset.

    Agree completely, Campbell will be contacted, he would be a solid fit, but he would be insane to go because those fans expectations are absolutely outrageous. Harbaugh goes two seasons with 8+ and their fans are talking about how he should go. I think Michigan fans could possibly be more delusional than Hawkeye fans.
