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.
Just a quick update on the Jedd Fisch situation. According to the people I'm talking to, people who should know, Fisch is going to take the job of quarterbacks coach in Seattle. The move could be made official as early as Tuesday.
I know, there's not been a lot of movement in this story since the Seattle Times first reported late last week that Fisch was expected to become part of Pete Carroll's new staff with the Seahawks.
Just wanted to let you know that folks close to the Gophers are expecting this situation to be resolved quickly.
The next question, of course, is who will replace Fisch? Brewster said last week that the person coming in would be asked to keep continuity in the offense Fisch installed, right down to the terminology. I'm betting that coach Tim Brewster, expecting this move, has been working very hard to find a replacement. I would expect a replacement to be named sooner rather than later.
That's about it. Have a good night.
