John Gagliardi, the winningest coach in college football history, is retiring from Division III St. John?s (Minn.).

Gagliardi announced his decision on the team website on Monday. He coached for 64 years, 60 of them at the private school in central Minnesota, and retires with a record of 489-138-11. He surpassed Eddie Robinson for the career coaching victories record in 2003 and won four national titles at St. John?s.

word is mike grant is interested. I did not realize Coach John makes over 100,000 a year. Pat Reusse is saying grant because he can retire from teaching, take his pension and St Johns gets a discount so they can afford some full time only football assistants. All of St Johns assistants coach another sport while ST Thomas has 3 full time football assistants only. 2 more who coach a second sport and 2 part time only football coaches. That is huge for recruiting.

Grant would be a quality pick for the Johnnies , Reusse needs better info thou as Grant does not teach but is the AD at EP which makes up the majority of his 100, 000 plus salary , only 6,000 is for coaching .

Heck ... Grant would be a quality pick for many Big10 schools .

When Grant first started he was a teacher. you are right he has been AD for several years now. I am not sure his health though would be a good fit for the college level. He is very overweight and has been told to lose weight.

He will have some competition. Gordon Shaw the current U of Idaho offensive line coach is interested. He and the staff are going to be let go after the season. Shaw was offensive line coach at the U of M under wacker and mason. Basement Brewster fired him even though he had two years on his contract because Shaw is a strong personality and a favorite of high school coaches. Shaw also to brewster what he was planning on doing was not going to work in the big ten.

So we will see. Shaw is also interested in the Hamline AD job and the St Thomas Job if it comes open. Rumor is Carauso is interested in moving up. May be to mankato state when Hoffner and Minnesota state workout an agreement for him to leave. sad for Todd but I believe he will not be let back to coach.

I would love to see Shaw go to Hamline...They need a coach more then an a.d. Maybe he can do both like Dick tressel did.

# finalists for the St Johns Job are:

St. John's (D-III - MN): St. John's has named three finalists for their head coaching position. Defensive line coach / recruiting coordinator Gary Fasching, Eden Prarie HS (MN) head coach Mike Grant, and former Carleton College head coach Kurt Ramler will all interview this week. Each of the candidates are St. John's graduates.

Hamline already hired a coach and it was not shaw. He was in the mix but they wanted a D 3 only coach.
