Industry sources tell FootballScoop that Western Michigan is working on a new contract for PJ Fleck that was described to FootballScoop as “unlike anything the MAC has ever seen”.
Specific details were not immediately available; but when consummated the package is expected to rival a lot of Power 5 head coaching compensation packages.
Since being named head coach in December 2012, Fleck has consistently delivered the top recruiting classes in the MAC and the results are showing up on the field…and in the stands. A bowl win this year would give WMU back to back 8 win seasons with six conference wins in both years.
Fleck was expected to be a highly sought after candidate during this year’s set of searches; but sources we have spoken with now expect Fleck to decline those opportunities.
