A source close to the football program told the Tribune that a deal will be reached, and that some of Erickson’s assistant coaches have already been determine.
Family Phil: James (Bond), if you want to take this opportunity to rip on Dennis, have at it. He is now persona non grata in my book. I hope he chokes on all that desert sand.
