I'm guessing they feel the team is underperforming. National Champions in 2005, 2006 & 2007.
Since then, here's how they've performed: 2008 -
SoCon Champs, 11-3, #2 seed in playoffs, Lost in Qtrs to eventual National Champions Richmond 2009 -
SoCon Champs, 11-3, unseeded in playoffs, Lost in Semis to Nationa runners-up & #1 seeded Montana 2010 -
SoCon Co-Champs (Wofford), 10-3, #1 seed in playoffs, Lost in Qtrs to unseeded and defending National Champion Villanova 2011 -
3rd in SoCn, 8-4, unseeded in playoffs, Lost int 2nd round (their 1st game) to unseeded Maine 2012 -
SoCon Co-Champs (GA Southern & Wofford), 8-3, unseeded in playoffs, Lost in 2nd round (their 1st game) to unseeded Illinois St in OT
Pretty good performance if you ask me. I know I'd be ecstatic is Nicholls State could get just 1 season like any of these. But no out-right SoCon title since 2009 and early exits from the playoffs the last 3 years can make the administration impatient. Plus, the SoCon is getting more competitive every year.
