P.J .Fleck played wide receiver for the Northern Illinois Huskies. He played from 1999 to 2003 and was an excellent wide receiver.

As a senior, he led the Huskies with 77 catches for 1,028 yards and six touchdowns, a reception total that still ranks second on the school's single-season list. Fleck still owns the school record for career punt returns (87), is second in punt return yards (716), ranks third in career catches (179) and is fourth in receiving yards (2,162). He also played in the NFL for two seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, but injuries ended his playing career.

Fleck began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at The Ohio State University. He then went on to be an assistant coach both in College and the NFL. In 2013, the Western Michigan Broncos hired Fleck as their head coach. He went on to turn the Broncos from losers to winners. Last year he led the Broncos to a 13-1 season. Early last year we called him one of the hot coaching commodities in College Football. We were not wrong. On January 6, 2017 P.J. Fleck was hired as the new head coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Let’s see how he does!
