Southern Miss likely to fire HC Ellis Johnson as soon as next Monday

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.

Sounds like a place Dooley will land CUSA would be more his level.

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 would have to take a pay cut to leave Bama for USM

I doubt Dooley would come here, but he can't be any worse than Ellis Johnson.

I can see Dooley taking a few years off.

His wife did not like the constant moving when he started his coaching career. I can see him just hanging out with family and within a studio.

I hope you're right. Watching the games is borderline unbearable.

Feel terrible for the seniors (lampley, etc.).

I think they should go the Fedora plan again. Get some young energetic OC to be their HC. A guy like Todd Monken if he would take the job.

So what if he left 4 years down the road? That means he would have been successful and not go Ofer like this year.

I'd take Ellis as a DC next year though, he was solid at USCe in that regard. If BMFP ends up coaching somewhere he might bring Ellis in, he hired him here for about 2 weeks before Spurrier stole him

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.
