USF isn’t firing anybody. The athletics program admin is a total joke.

He gets this whole season to make his case if he should be retained.

Exactly. People are so quick to fire. I hate that we have had to pay coaches for years not coached because of this.

We are expected to win 4 games this season, right? Well we have 1 in the bag and 8 games left. If we meet our expectation, ok. If we beat it, great. If we don’t meet it, then we can talk.

An expectation to win 4 games in year 3 is a pretty low bar.  I don’t know at what other programs where this would be acceptable.

I’m going to take a wild guess and say we get crushed by ECU. Are we allowed to fire him then?

Which assistant would you name for interim? Would they really do any better with this group? What are the financial implications vs waiting til year end?

The only reason to fire a coach early is to get a jump start on hiring so you don't miss out on good coaches.

We will miss out on good coaches no matter what.  Our ceiling is retread coaches and up and coming assistants who still have a job right now.

Therefore there is no reason to fire him early.

We have 0 in the bag. A win against FCS is nothing but us paying someone to lose. That  **** doesn’t count.
