CMU coaching search heating up

Fresh off its thrilling GMAC Bowl win over Troy, Central Michigan University isn't done making news in the college football world.

The Chippewas, who finished 12-2 and with their first-ever AP Top 25 final ranking (No. 23), will fire up their coaching search this week. Athletic director Dave Heeke, who hired Butch Jones to replace Brian Kelly as one of his first big moves on campus, will get down to the business of replacing Jones, who succeeded Kelly at Cincinnati.

The Oakland Press' sister paper in Mount Pleasant, The Morning Sun, is on top of the story, and we'll bring you their updates — courtesy of beat writer Drew Ellis — as they come along.

Ellis reported Friday that the search is down to five candidates, all but one of them with significant ties to in-state programs. Here is his blog post.
