The episode begins with Golic recapping his calling the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys. The NFL conversation shifts to the open coaching jobs around the league. Belichick is the hottest coach on the market, and the duo discuss the surprise that one of the top teams he is linked to is the Atlanta Falcons.
The pair transitions to the college carousel as, despite winning the most recent national championship, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is interviewing for open head coaching positions in the NFL, including with the Los Angeles Chargers and Falcons.
