Southern Miss likely to fire HC Ellis Johnson as soon as next Monday (Posted on 11/19/12 at 8:21 am)
Word is the money has been raised for his buyout. Johnson has proved he isn't head coach material taking a 12-2 CUSA championship team and turning them into an 0-11 team on the verge of having the first winless season in Southern Miss history.

Dooley is going to be lucky to get a HC gig anywhere. He sucked at La Tech and at Tenn. That said, I think he could have been successful if he wasn't following the disaster left by Lane Kiffen. He should have never taken that job.
He's going to have to get a small job like Southern Miss and win big to get another big chance.

He'll end up in Charlotte doing ESPNU stuff probably.
Would USM consider going the 1AA route or Div 2 route for a proven HC? I don't really know who is out there, but with all the 1aa schools in LA and MS, and the d2 schools in AL, there is probably a viable candidate somewhere in that mix.
