Interviews done, three remain
Sun Sports Writer
Central Michigan Athletics Director Dave Heeke has concluded his round of face-to-face interviews this weekend and according to a source close to the situation, Heeke has three candidates still in the running for the vacant football head coaching position.
CMU Offensive Coordinator Mike Bajakian, Michigan State Running Backs Coach Dan Enos, and Illinois Defensive Backs coach Curt Mallory are the three remaining in the search.
Following the interviews with members of the CMU administration, it is now up to Heeke to determine which candidate is the best fit for the Chippewas.
Heeke is expected to go through his own personal analysis of the candidates and the interviews on Sunday night in order to make a decision. A decision is hoped to be made on Monday for the University if cleared through all the avenues.
CMU wants to name a new head coach early this week, with a press conference tentatively scheduled for Tuesday afternoon if a deal is in place.
Part of the interview process has focused on contract terms and amounts, so once a choice is made, there is not expected to be much time spent in negotiations.
