Ncaa Football Head Coaching Terminations

Tue Nov 20, 2012 8:28 pm

It's that time of year again, Rivalry Week! Also, it marks the "races" on who stays and who gets fired.

Looks like California didn't waste any time getting rid of Jeff Tedford after its rival game, finishing with a 3-9 record.

http://www.sfgate.com/collegesports/...Cal-fires-Jeff-Tedford-4053938.php

Who else could be gone or is in the hottest seat?

Tennessee also fired Derek Dooley. Even though Southern Cal has said otherwise, I'd be shocked if Kiffin isn't on the hot seat or finds himself on it soon. Otherwise I see John L. Smith at Arkansas as likely being done.

Hence my comment that Southern Cal has said otherwise to his being on the hot seat. I still think given what that program "means" in terms of its fanbase, boosters, and name in college football, that the Kiffin era won't last long. The man is a joke and it's a wonder he ever left Knoxville, TN alive. Maybe one day he'll be able to pump Alshon Jeffrey's gas!

Safe to say John Smith (Arkansas), Gene Chizik (Auburn), and Joker Phillips (Kentucky) will all be looking for new careers.

I think it was a mistake for Tennessee to fire Dooley. I know a 4-7 record sucks (with no wins in the SEC) but the problem isn't the entire team, it's the defense. They score 36 average points per game, so they have one of the best offenses in the SEC. The problem is that they allow 37 PPG. If their defense steps up and allows 10 less points each game, they would've beat #5 Georgia, #13 South Carolina, and Missouri, giving them a 7-4 record, and guaranteeing a bowl bid. I say fire the hell out of the Defensive coordinator and give Dooley another year to rebuild the program.

I have never understood the attraction of this Lane Kiffin guy. I don't know why Tennessee or USC hired him. His biggest accomplishment is being Monte Kiffin's son and plus he is an A-grade douchebag to boot. His firing would make my day.

He's definitely not his daddy...... I honestly would not be surprised if his name is mentioned for the Georgia State job (Bill Curry is retiring after being with the program since 2008 and this was their third season of football.).

Gene Chizik is probably going as well, as Auburn is 3-8 and goes into the Iron Bowl 0-7 in the SEC and look to finish the season 0-8 in the SEC. Even if they beat Alabama , a 4-8 (1-7 SEC) record is not a job saver, especially for a program that won a National Championship two seasons ago.

Still, I think the intention may have been for Smith to have been in the running for the job full time - when he was introduced, he was introduced as "head coach" rather than interim head coach. Beyond that, the idea of having a one-season only appointment is just unthinkable when you take into account the recruiting process. Plus if you're Smith, why give up the Weber State job, even if it's an FCS job, for a 10-month appointment? I think even a middling season from Smith (ie bowl eligibility or one game under eligibility) probably would see him return.

Absolutely. Look at my Alshon Jeffrey reference. It stems from a comment he made after Jeffrey decommitted from Southern Cal. When it looked increasingly like he was going to choose South Carolina over Tennessee, Kiffin called Jeffrey to make a late pitch. His pitch? If Jeffrey became a Gamecock he'd wind up pumping gas for the rest of his life "like all the other players from South Carolina." Never mind that quite a few Gamecocks are in the NFL. Needless to say Jeffrey chose South Carolina and went in the 2nd round of the 2012 draft to Da Bears.

It might have been a possibility.

The reason for Smith to take a one year job was money. A lot of money. Also Sears is listed as an Interim Head Coach on the Weber web site. Smith might have the job locked up after his year at Arkansas. I would not be surprised to see him go back there.

Also, Arkansas wanted someone else, a 'big name', which wasn't available. They've been quietly feeling out several people this year.

I would not be greatly shocked if a contrite and reformed Petrino returns after the first of the year. Despite the scandel, he is still very popular with big time boosters and the public in Arkansas.

Idaho fired Rob Akey a couple weeks ago and is using the offensive coordinator to finish the season. Probably the least attractive job in all of FBS but it is still there for anyone that feels like an extreme challenge. I'd imagine they are pushing hard to lure Dennis Erickson out of his retirement to take over, but trading in a live of leasure in Coeur d'Alene for the trainwreck that is the Vandals of Moscow is a tough sell.

Yeah, I know all this but it still hurts. Especially when you call a QB sneak on 1st and 10 when you thought it was 3rd and 1. My only hope is that Bill McCartney went 1-10 his 3rd season and Embree got his out of the way earlier. They might have a shot beating Utah after playing 4 ranked teams in a row.

Just because I can, paid tuition as a grad student for 3 years, I think Mack Brown at UT should be done. He won back in 2005 because of VY, but since then it's just been an average team with no big recruits or wins. Texas screwed up when they let Muschamp leave for Florida.

Smith is officially going

I don't have any specific names on the possible new coach, but Arkansas is prepared to offer a lot of money to the right coach to get him to come to Fayetteville.

IMHO, being a native of Arkansas and having attend the University in Fayetteville back a long time ago, Arkansas main problem is that the state has a relatively small population and doesn't have the type of high school football programs that 'grow' championship college teams.

They have a good reputation in the state, and surrounding states - but the top prospects go elsewhere.

Being so close to SEC and Big 12 powerhouses definitely hurts recruiting for Arkansas. With Mizzou now in the SEC, that's another state SEC teams will start recruiting in a lot more and try to poach recruits that may have gone to Mizzou or Arkansas (Heck, Florida, Auburn, Bama, Carolina and Tennessee have been doing it in Georgia for years.....). The stink of Petrino is still pretty strong in Fayetteville......

Another coach that may be on the hot seat is Bobby Hauck at UNLV. Even if they win tonight (late game against a poor Hawaii team) they finish at 3-10 in his third season in charge. With UNLV looking to move forward on their 50,000 seat retractable roof proposed stadium, they might want to go get a splashy name to show they are going to be committed to football and encourage donations to help the project. Or they might just think that a double digit loss total is unaccepable after three years.

It's the play calling. Let's take a look at Lane's asshole moments since he became a HC:

-Accused Urban Meyer of recruiting violations in calling Nu'Keese Richardson while Richardson was on a visit to Tennessee. In doing so he violated an SEC rule against mentioning recruits by name and, oh yeah, what Meyer was doing wasn't a recruiting violation at all. Got publicly reprimanded by Mike Slive for the comment and had to make a public apology. Never mind the recruiting violations Tennessee incurred during the time for its mock press conference http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/footbal...adds-one-more-rea?urn=ncaaf,140108

-The aforementioned Alshon Jeffrey "pumping gas" comment

-Departure from Tennessee *during* the recruiting season

-Rumblings around the Internet that Tennessee recruits felt like the recruiting process was a joke with coaches tearing off shirts WWE style to impress upon recruits how INTENSE and CRUNK they were at Tennessee http://www.faniq.com/blog/Video-Lane...s-Recruits-At-Tennessee-Blog-20005

-"Numbersgate" at SoCal

-This awesome press conference - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=cX844T-EYUw - which initially led to the reporter being banned from practices and a game.

I'd personally like to buy Lane Kiffin for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth.

Fair enough. I honestly don't pay a whole lot of attention to off-the-field news. Just don't have the patience for it.

Either way, the bland play-calling drives me insane. Especially following the Pete Carroll era.

Funny thing is, our defense (which has been god-awful) actually did pretty darn well against Notre Dame. I'm quite happy with holding them to 1 touchdown and 1 field goal in the first quarter, and then 4 field goals for the remainder of the game. But I really don't know what they were trying to do with our offense. I mean, I know Wittek has a good arm, but jesus, enough with the long throws! Of course, not having Barkley didn't exactly help...

My real question with CU is why in the hell they would think it was worth obscene humiliation week after week and make the move to the PAC12? Surely they didnt really think they would stand a chance, is the $$ really good enough to put up with it?

I agree. When the Pac-12 announced that Colorado would be joining, I was very skeptical of the pick. I did not think Colorado would do well. Even though its only been two years, I was right. The pick was not very well thought thoroughly and they (Pac-12) could have went with someone else.

The only good thing Colorado has brought to the conference was the Men's Basketball Champions, last year.

It puzzles my as to why Colorado does not have a baseball team......

I dont care if you put Don Shula, Vince Lombardi, and Bear Bryant on the coaching squad, CU would still SUCK!

Call us after a few seasons in the Big 10 and we'll let you know.


Haha, no doubt! Sorry, I definitely didnt see that one coming and we may have a new laughing stock of football in Maryland.

I have always wondered this, especially given the HUGE amount of baseball talent at Colorado high schools!

CU's problem is that the school does not allow junior college transfers. All of their players are signed as HS seniors and must attend CU as freshmen. CU wants to keep their academic/admission standards higher than everyone else (it's their own pereception) and lock out athletes as a result. Until CU changes their admissions policy and allows JC transfers or kids that may test lower on their ACT/SAT scores CU will be the laughingstock of the PAC12. I work in Boulder and have never attended a CU football game and probably never will unless they decide that they need a better product on the field.

What would really help is if they fired Mike Bohn, their Athletic Director, and hired someone who knew how to manage a major college athletic program.

Stanford seems to be doing just fine with their high academic standards. Their athletic department top to bottom is almost certainly the best in the nation.

It was certainly well thought out, looking at the long term and not just the short term in one sport. The large media market added money for all conference members, the school fits culturally and academically with many members of the conference, and CU has a large alumni base on the west coast. The Pac-12 is a much better fit for the school than the Big 12.

They'd have been right there with Kansas as Big 12 punching bag this year. The move was never about raising the level of competition for football, as CU was already playing a tough conference schedule. It was about money, conference stability (the PAC was trying to rip the guts out of the Big 12 at the time), and academic association with the top schools on the west coast.

Lets agree to disagree.

But then again, we are getting off topic here. Lets stick to the topic at hand, and that's Head Coaching Terminations.

Sorry, I have to disagree with you on this one but thats the beauty of discussion

While I agree CU has issues with their policies (when it comes to building a good football team), many other teams hold similar or even more stringent standards for their players (as mentioned, Stanford), while still not being the laughing stock of college football. Mike Bohn couldnt put the best coach in football in charge and expect anything different. The program really does suck.

Funny you mention that because I have said all year Weis is likely to get the axe after this season no matter what. Kansas has WAY too much potential to keep someone like him in.

Hey, guys.... May I make a suggestion? If you want to keep discussing who should be in what conference, please do do in another thread or here: Maryland Leaving The ACC (by garnetpalmetto Nov 19 2012 in Non Aviation)

I didn't start ths thread for conference realignments.....

Thanks.

NOT CONFIRMED but one of the local Nashville radio stations has been saying that Gruden has been replaced by Trent Dilfer in the booth for at least tonights MNF game. Again, unconfirmed, but why the last minute change?

He's been rumored for The University of Tennessee and both the Eagles and Panthers coaches (tonight's match-up). Stirring the pot? Yes, I am! But an interesting night no less..

Oh, yea, plus this. Dr. Jerry "Punch" from ESPN's Nascar coverage says he has the scoop on Gruden.

And UT's AD Dave Hart has his candidate locked.

Could be interesting 24-48 hours...

If it makes you feel better, Maryland in the Big Ten cannot possibly be worse than Missouri in the SEC.

That's a great idea whether Gruden is going somewhere or not. I might not have the game on mute tonight.

The first year coach I most expected to see fired is Ellis Johnson at Southern Miss. He took over a program with sixteen straight winning seasons and went 0-12. Yikes!

I suppose it could still happen in the next few days.
