Western Michigan is set to hire Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver coach P.J. Fleck as their next head coach.

According to David Drew of the Kalamazoo Gazette, Fleck is expected to be introduced as the new head coach on Tuesday.

Fleck has experience in the Mid-American Conference as he was a wide receiver at Northern Illinois. He played two seasons in the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers before heading to the coaching ranks.

Fleck was a graduate assistant at Ohio State for two seasons before becoming receivers coach at Northern Illinois. He then joined Greg Schiano’s staff at Rutgers in 2010 before following Schiano to the Buccaneers.

Fleck replaces Bill Cubit as the head coach of Western Michigan.

    Looks like he took the report earlier about players wanting coaches to go back to college seriously.

    I wonder what player he will get into a shoving match with before he leaves.

    Too bad it was the wrong coach. They need to send their DB coach back to the High School ranks.

    Not a fan of guys bailing on their teams before the season is even over.

    I can only assume you feel the same way about teams firing guys before the seasons is over as well?
