Butch Davis had long been considered the favorite for the job, but a report from Foxsports.com last week said that a contract dispute between Davis and his old employer, North Carolina, inhibited him from getting the job.



Whatever that means

Awful. IF FIU had fans they should be pissed they fired Cristobal for a super retread like Turner.

They have like 40K undergrads and I've never met one person in my life who has gone there and I have lived on the east coast of FL for 2 years now. It must be mainly a commuter school, can't imagine more than a few hundred people are up in arms about this terrible HC switch.
