Purdue hires MAC coaches all the time, so we said "screw it, why not write about every active MAC coach". We hope you like the non-PJ Fleck candidates, too.
A 60 year old man, whose only Power 5 coaching success came almost two decades ago, ain’t the best recipe for success.
A home run swing on a super young coach. What do we have to lose?
Creighton would be a perfectly OK, super boring hire for Purdue.
Frank Solich will be coaching mediocre bowl games long after we're all dead. Long live Frank Solich.
Mike Neu knows Drew Brees, and might be a good football coach (eventually). But not right now.
An IU guy with a 1-6 record in 2016, yes, but Carey will absolutely get a look by Purdue. Sigh.
Six DIII National Championships in eight years seems pretty cool.
John Bonamego is a delightful person with an incredibly fun name to say.
Martin has won 2 and 3 games in his first two seasons at Miami OH, and is currently 1-6 (with his only win over…yup, Kent State).
He knows Kliff Kingsbury and Kevin Sumlin, so maybe he can get one of them to coach the team?
