A glimmer of hope

The University of Minnesota needs a new football coach. Given that a new, on-campus football stadium has been approved (artist's rendition here), the job is suddenly much more attractive. But who could they get?

Well, Tony Dungy (a former U of M quarterback) came here last year and lobbied for the stadium. I admit that such a high-profile hire is unlikely, and "Dungy on Tuesday denied a report out of Minneapolis saying he was near the top of the Golden Gophers' wish list and that there was mutual interest." But you never know. I offer the following evidence.
I have some faint hope that Dungy is a liar too.
