Heeke set for final interviews this weekend
The interviews will take place outside of the CMU campus this weekend in order to decide on a final choice.
The final candidates are Mike Bajakian (CMU Offensive Coordinator), Steed Lobotzke (Wake Forest Offensive Coordinator), Curt Mallory (Illinois Defensive Backs Coach), Dan Enos (Michigan State Running Backs Coach), Scot Loeffler (Florida Quarterbacks Coach), and Erik Campbell (Iowa Wide Receivers and Tight Ends Coach).
Campbell is the late addition to the list but he has Michigan ties, having graduated from Michigan in 1988 and having coached with the Wolverines from 1995-2007, including being the assistant head coach from 2003-07. Campbell has coached the last two years with Iowa.
As of now, CMU doesn’t have a frontrunner and the administration has not interviewed one candidate more than others.
The key in the final interviews will be on which candidate has the best coaching staff put together.
The hopes for CMU is to have a final choice by Sunday where it can begin negotiations to have a formal announcement early next week.
