Purdue Football Coaching Search: Butch Jones Will Be At Purdue Today

New, 70 comments

It appears an announcement for Purdue's coaching position will come soon.

I awoke this morning to a text from a source on campus:

"Butch Jones will definitely be on campus today."

That likely means one of two things. Either he will officially be interviewing for the open Purdue position or, since he has reportedly been offered the job, he will be on campus as the Boilers announce their next coach. This rumor appears to have some legs too. The Purdue corporate jet is currently en route from West Lafayette to a small airport in Middletown, Ohio.

The flight has a 10:45am arrival time in Middletown. Sure, it could be a routine flight, but this seems to be a pretty solid lead. He is still supposed to interview at Colorado tomorrow as well.

As we have been for some time, the waiting will continue. The endgame could be in action as we wait, however. Butch Jones will be on campus today, so maybe it is time for the coaching search to end and the winning to begin again.
