University of Minnesota Athletics Director Mark Coyle announced today that P.J. (Philip John) Fleck has been named head football coach at the University of Minnesota. The University and Fleck have agreed to a five-year term. 36-year-old Fleck comes to Minnesota after spending four years as the head coach at Western Michigan. Previous coach Tracy Claeys was fired earlier this week in the wake of sexual assault allegations against 10 of his players.
