Yes but it led to Croom who had no business being a HC

Jackie was the dirtiest guy out there and everyone knew it.

After the success USC had with Pete Carroll, colleges were trying to replicate what they did by hiring retread coaches from the NFL with no previous college coaching experience. Of course what everybody found out later is that a) Pete Carroll's failures in the NFL was wildly overblown and he wasn't a bad NFL coach and b) A shitty head coach in the NFL will almost certainly be a shitty head coach in college as well.


I was still in middle school when Callahan was hired, but from what I remember Callahan was like the 10th person down the list.

Current AD Bill Moos talks about how he has relationships with all sorts of current coaches and keeps a list of names in his desk in case he has to make a change. Pedersen fired Solich out of the blue without making any inroads beforehand and he was a universally unlikable person. Dude bought his own casket hiring Callahan after being publicly rebuffed by several coaches

He was just as bad then had a good year for MSU then got run. If you're winning 3 games over a good stretch you're leaving isn't detrimental no matter what the next guy does.

Nebraska thinking they were too good for Frank Solich’s 9.7 wins per season and hiring Bill Callahan.

This isn't really a firing/hiring scenario, but I always wondered what would have happened at LSU in the 80s and forward if Bo Rein didn't die in that plane crash...

"destroyed" may be a bit strong, but Maryland getting rid of Friedgen was dumb IMO. I know there was the whole James Franklin coach in waiting thing that flamed out, but Fridge had a good thing going (by Maryland standards).

What was that quote by the AD or President?

"We're not going to concede the Big12 to Texas."

All because they hadn't won it in a few years.

Over-reactionary program that thought they should go 12-0 every year because they had 3 dominant years in the 90's and thought the Osborne sellout was the norm.

The circumstances were a bit different, but Georgia Tech hasn't really been competitive since the whole George O'Leary fiasco. Same with Mike Price and Washington State (Leach had good teams there but Price won the conference twice).

I think we'll look back on Art Briles being (rightfully) forced out of Baylor as the moment they stopped being a national threat.

I’d add Texas firing Mack Brown. They’ve not been the same since and prob should have just given him more help and support. He’s clearly a very solid coach.

Arkansas never hiring malzahn before it was too late was mind blowing.

Mack needed a change of scenery and a fresh start, IMO.

I was coming in to say this
He was 75-50 all time at Maryland with 3 straight 10 or more win seasons
An ACC title and an orange bowl appearance and 6 bowl games in 9 seasons

They haven’t had a winning record in conference since

This is a great one. USF was rolling until he was fired. You do not hear one peep about them now.

And no one hired him after. Did Hallman failing so badly at LSU really scare everyone?

Gary Barnett at Colorado is another one. That program has been a colossal dumpster fire since he got forced out.
