PJ Fleck’s wife Heather blasts reporter for being ‘negative and awful’

PJ Fleck

Minnesota did not enjoy great success in PJ Fleck’s first season as head football coach last year, but his wife Heather thinks that’s no reason to be criticizing her husband nearly five months later.

On Tuesday, Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse threw a bit of a cheap shot at Fleck while criticizing the Minnesota Wild for falling into a 3-1 hole in their playoff series against the Winnipeg Jets.

Heather Fleck caught wind of the tweet a couple days later, and let’s just say she wasn’t pleased. She responded by ripping Reusse for being so negative.

Reusse fired back with just one word.

The Gophers lost seven of their last nine games to close out the season last year after winning their first three, but it was only Fleck’s first year with the program. Most coaches need at least two or three years to build up their recruiting pipeline, so it’s a bit early to issue harsh judgment. If Fleck can get players to buy into his trademark motto next season, perhaps Heather will be able to rub her husband’s success in Reusse’s face.
