Brew not wasting any time

As I'm sure everyone read yesterday, Phil Meyer "resigned" as Offensive Line Coach for the Golden Gophers. I say "resigned" because this "resignation" feels not unlike Dan Monson's "resignation" from the basketball team a couple of years ago. The guess is that Meyer was asked to resign.

Whether or not the offensive line problems were actually Meyer's fault is up for debate, but the fact remains that his unit was a glaring problem ever since the conference season started.

In any case, Coach Brewster, as is his M.O., doesn't seem to be wasting any time in finding a replacement. It appears that Tim Davis, Director of Player Personnel under Nick Saben at Alabama is possibly in line to take the position.

I'm not a great "available offensive line coaches" mind, but Davis appears to have some nice experience coaching in the trenches. From Kent Youngblood's article this morning:
"Davis has an extensive résumé. He was assistant offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins before re-joining Nick Saban at Alabama. He was an assistant at Southern California for the 2002-04 seasons, spending one year focused on guards and centers and two years as the offensive line coach. USC won at least a share of the national title in two of his three seasons at the school. Davis was tight ends/offensive tackles coach at Wisconsin from 1997 to 2001."
