The search for our new head coach continues...

It's no secret that Mike Zimmer is one of my favorites. He's my top choice. If his mastery of defense doesn't woo you, take a look at this:

(Zimmer on Bobby Petrino's mid-season departure while in Atlanta.)

"He’s a gutless bastard. Quote that. I
don’t give a s—."

"How about this, gutless MF. You can use that."

"[Petrino] is a coward. Put that in quotes. He ruined a bunch of people’s
lives, a bunch of people’s families, kids, because he didn’t have enough
nuts to stay there and finish the job. That’s the truth."

I wanna buy coach a beer at training camp.

But what about you? Who's your pick?
