It’s high noon....

Yurcich getting talked about for Akron job:

The Athletic put our an article today profiling the head coaching job at Akron. They went into the details of the job and what the expectations are.

A third​ Mid-American Conference​ job has opened,​ as​ Akron​ dismissed​ Terry Bowden​ after​ seven​ seasons.

On​ the​ surface,​ it​ was​ a little surprising,​​ given that Bowden and the Zips won a division championship last year. Bowden went 35-52, finishing with one winning season and two bowl bids.

....Akron did win the MAC in 2005, but does it expect to compete for the title annually? Akron is historically in the easier MAC division, paired with teams like Ohio and Buffalo instead of Northern Illinois, Toledo and Western Michigan.{The Athletic}

They also talked about the facilities that would come with job and whether or not it would be a requirement to have Midwest ties. They then went into their list of coaches that could be in the mix. Yurcich being one of them. Other names on the list include Mississippi State OC Luke Getsy and Michigan offensive line coach Ed Warinner.
