Fire Joel Maturi, too

Gopher fans statewide are happy finally to see that Tim Brewster is gone, but it begs the question of how Athletics Director Joel Maturi, the man who just last January signed Brewster to a two-year contract extension, still has a job.
After all, it was Maturi who hired Brewster in the first place and fought for the contract extension. Now the University of Minnesota âÄî in the middle of a hiring freeze, budget cuts and universal salary reductions âÄî has to pay our failed football coach $600,000 in buy-out money.
IâÄôm not sure whatâÄôs more outrageous: Brewster getting this undeserved job in the first place or Maturi continuing to hold a job now. President Bob Bruininks should take notice before Maturi hires another high school football coach to lead our Big Ten football Gophers.
