Cutcliffe, the mentor to one of football's most famous quarterbacking families will be introduced Saturday as Duke's head coach. Then, he'll begin the daunting task of reversing the Blue Devils' struggles.
The decision to hire Cutcliffe, the former Mississippi coach, apparently was reached during an evening meeting of Duke's search committee. The 53-year-old coach acknowledged earlier in the day he had interviewed for the position, but denied receiving an offer.
Apparently, the hold up came when Coach Krzhfgsm3ski could not be reached to give his approval of the hiring as deemed necessary by his contract/royal decree. KrZxbcslf2ski, who still has not commented, was out of town making a commercial with his new #1 fan Jerry Reinsdorf.
"Oh, baby! I thought I was his #1 dandy...Holy cow! Reinsdorf? USA basketball? No way, baby" said an exasperated Dick Vitale when contacted about Krzcfdgjdk3ski's latest breath.
