Purdue's new coach sets sights on Rose Bowl

(AP) Morgan Burke wants Purdue back in the Rose Bowl, and he’s willing to put his money on Darrell Hazell to get there. After a whirlwind week of speculation, Burke ended the chatter by introducing the 48-year-old New Jersey native as the Boilermakers’ head coach Wednesday. The contract is for six years and comes with a succinct message from Burke: The Cradle of Quarterbacks is about to start rocking again. “We did it because we want to get back to Pasadena,” Burke said. Hazell comes to West Lafayette with a perfect resume. He’s a disciplined student of the game who

Big Ten mailbag: Bielema, Hazell, & expansion

Time to open up the mail bag. And, as you would suspect, the bag was stuffed with questions about Bret Bielema’s shocking move from Wisconsin to Arkansas that still has the nation buzzing. Read all about that—and more. And send me your latest questions and comments at the bottom of this post. I think Bret Bielema is the first Big Ten head coach to leave for another job since Nick Saban bolted Michigan State for LSU in 1999. Why are some writers making it out like there’s a mass exodus of coaches from the conference? – Jonathan I can’t speak

Dienhart: Purdue lands Kent State's Hazell

After failing to land Cincinnati coach Butch Jones, Purdue was able to grab Kent State coach Darrell Hazell. Hazell went 16-9 in two seasons at Kent State, a notoriously bad MAC program. He went 11-2 this season, including an 8-0 mark in MAC play, on his way to claiming the East Division title and MAC Coach of the Year. The Golden Flashes just missed out on a likely BCS bowl bid when they lost a 44-37 double-overtime thriller to Northern Illinois in the MAC title game. Kent State is headed to the GoDaddy.com Bowl to play Arkansas State, which just

Dienhart: Purdue's search & other coaching rumblings

It’s apparent that Cincinnati’s Butch Jones is the top target for the Purdue job. Colorado also is in hot pursuit of Jones. Jones was reported to be in West Lafayette on Sunday interviewing to replace Danny Hope, who was fired after four seasons with a 22-27 record. Outlets also report that Jones was in Colorado on Monday to interview. Colorado is reportedly offering a five-year deal for $13.5 million. Jones, a hot commodity last year when he was linked to jobs at North Carolina, UCLA and Illinois, makes $1.57 million at Cincinnati. [RELATED: Boilers react to Hope’s firing on Twitter]

Dienhart: My latest Big Ten bowl projections

The regular season is over. All that’s left is the Big Ten title game, which could alter the Big Ten bowl projections at the top of the pecking order. We know this for sure: seven teams will go bowling, as Purdue and Michigan State punched their tickets with wins on Saturday to join Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Northwestern and Minnesota. That means the Big Ten won’t be able to fill its eighth and final bowl spot in the Little Caesar’s Bowl. If Ohio State and Penn State weren’t on probation, the Big Ten bowl ranks would swell to nine.
