So long Timmah: Brewster gets the Axe

Coming from the University of Minnesota, head coach Tim Brewster has been fired. Offensive coordinator Jeff Horton will become the interim head coach. UM Athletic Director Joel Maturi:
"While I appreciate the passion and commitment that Coach Brewster has shown, it is clear that a change in the leadership of Gopher football is necessary," Maturi said. "We have high aspirations for our football program and we are not satisfied with its current direction. The results so far this season have been unacceptable and the program has simply not shown enough improvement over the past three and a half years to continue with the status quo."
Don't know about you, but the first thing that comes to mind is "how does this affect Penn State's visit this week?"

That's not to say I think the Nittany Lions will lose in Minneapolis. But changes like a fired head coach can play funny games with teams.

Anyway, here's the first casualty of 2010.
