Joe Christensen covered Major League Baseball for 15 years, including three seasons at the Baltimore Sun and eight at the Star Tribune, before switching to the college football beat. He’s a Faribault, Minn., native who graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1996. He covered Jim Wacker’s Gophers for the Minnesota Daily and also wrote about USC, UCLA and the Rose Bowl for the Riverside Press-Enterprise before getting this chance to cover football again.
Email Joe to talk about the Gophers.
Gophers coach Tim Brewster, in an interview with David Shama for his Minnesota Sports Headliners website, said he has not had contact with anyone regarding the open job at the University of Kansas. "I have not spoken with anybody," he told Shama. "I have no interest in any other job besides the University of Minnesota."
There will be media access with the team later this afternoon. I'll get back to you after that.
Was there no contact? Chances are we'll never really know. But I know this: There are ways for feelers to be put out without a coach being personally involved. Did that happen in this case? I don't know. But now Brewster is on record as saying he's not interested in any other job.
That's about it.
