Mel Pearson Changes Mind, Chooses Michigan Tech

New, 5 comments

A few weeks after turning down the job, long-time Michigan assistant coach Mel Pearson changed his mind and accepted the Michigan Tech head coaching position.

It's a bit strange to see a press release of Pearson saying he's "extremely excited" for the job so soon after telling Tech he just wasn't that into them, but as I've noted, Tech seemed to be a great opportunity for Pearson, and likely vice versa. Michigan Tech needed to make a solid hire with this coaching move, and it would appear that they've done so.
