Gilmore pulls out

Holy Cross coach Tom Gilmore has pulled out of the running for the vacant Yale football job.

Gilmore was in New Haven on Monday interviewing for the job held by his close friend Jack Siedlecki for the last 12 seasons.

On Wednesday he told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette that he is no longer a candidate for the Yale job.

UMass coach Don Brown, Florida offensive line coach Steve Addazio, Stanford offensive coordinator Dave Shaw and Akron defensive coordinator Jim Fleming are known to have interviewed with Yale officials although indications are that Shaw and Fleming are not in the running to replace Siedlecki.

The original hope of having a coach in place by Friday is looking unlikely. In Yale's history counts for anything in such matters, don't expect this to be a routine process. There are just too many people with their hands in this deal to make as easy as identifying a leader and hiring them but maybe Yale will surprise me.

Stay tuned.
