The University of Minnesota has officially hired Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck as the Golden Gophers new head coach, replacing the fired Tracy Claeys.

Fleck has been in Kalamazoo for the last four seasons, and he led the Broncos to the Mid-American Conference championship and a berth in the Cotton Bowl where WMU lost to Wisconsin.
