Ryan Day Receives Hilarious Coaching Offer After Michigan Loss

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum believes Ryan Day should get out of Ohio State following his third straight loss to the Michigan Wolverines, and there happens to be a job "offer" waiting for him should he decide to leave Columbus.

"I think he's got a real problem," Finebaum said. "I don't like the path ahead. ... I think he's a very good coach. But you can't lose that game. That speaks for itself. ... I'd get out of there, while you can."

Finebaum's advice comes at a time when the Kalamazoo Growlers, a baseball team in the Northwoods League, says it has offered Day a job to become the team's third base coach.

In their satirical post, you can see a T-shirt with Day on it, with the words "3rd Base Coach" below that.

The shirts are currently for $25 - $28 on the team's store site.

The team announced its interest on its site.

The Kalamazoo Growlers have formally extended an offer to Ohio State Football Coach Ryan Day for their 3rd base coaching position. 

The position would begin in the middle of May, prior to the Growlers 11th season at Homer Stryker Field. The position would involve coaching 3rd base, surveillance and scouting.

"We think Ryan was born for the position." said Growlers Owner, Brian Colopy, "We will do whatever it takes to get Ryan to Kalamazoo."

Ryan Day and Ohio State are coming off their 3rd straight loss to their long time rival in the University of Michigan.

The team believes it will need to raise significant funds to pay for their increased coaching salary budget which is why the team has announced that they will be selling "Official 3rd Base Coach" t-shirts. Shirts can be pre-ordered at: OFFICIAL 3rd Base Coach T-Shirt.

The Growlers have previously made waves with another one of their coaches in 2019. The fiery 6 year old Coach Drake burst onto the scene and was known for arguing with umpires and throwing tantrums that ejected him from the games.

Of course, Kalamazoo is located in Michigan. This is meant as a dig toward Day, who's 56-7 in his career at Ohio State but has been unable to win a national championship or defeat Michigan in the past three seasons.
