So a kindly Twitterer directed a tweet my way from Newy Scruggs - no, really, that's his name. Scruggs is a Dallas-area sports anchor and radio show host. At first I laughed, not really sure if he was joking or mistyped something or something else unfortunate. The tweet reads thusly:
Hearing Mike Leach to Maryland as the head coach and Sean Salisbury will be the offensive coordinator. They are good friends. Stay tuned
"Hahahaha, funny joke, Mr. Scruggs," was my initial reaction. "Good one."
Then this popped up:
Mike Leach to Maryland, Sean Salisbury as OC? Qadry Ismail reporting this...
If you're not sure who Sean Salisbury is, I direct you to this informative Wikipedia article. He was a QB at Minnesota for awhile before becoming an ESPN analyst and getting pwned by John Clayton on a weekly basis. He then took pictures of his junk and showed it to several women. He then lied about it. And no, he no longer works for ESPN.
Did I mention that he has never been a coach? Ever? Because he hasn't.
For now, this is a dumb Twitter rumor. But if it happens, well, I'll be doubting the Pirate. And I imagine many wouldn't take too kindly to switching out a successful, clean alum for...Salisbury.
