Morgan Burke Acknowledges Danny Hope Needs To Produce

Clearly, Morgan Burke reads Boiled Sports.

Today's Journal & Courier has an article about Morgan Burke not extending Danny Hope's contract. 

Of course, this would mean something if Coach Hope wasn't already under contract through 2014. But, still, it's something, and Burke's comments about how he has heard the voices that are not satisfied with Hope's performance are telling as well.

Burke acknowledges that Hope is going to need to start winning and he intimates that 2011 is a pivotal year.

While he never comes out and says it, I think this is as close as we'll get to an ultimatum that the football program takes a big step forward next year, or it's likely the end for Danny Hope.

(Thanks to reader Tom for the heads-up.)
