What took so long? He's been dreadful.

So... who's the next coach? Gruden? Kelly? Frost? Mullen?

Was hoping this was about John Fox

Well...most of East TN is happy tonite.

His buyout is around $8.5 million. In total, if all of Jones' assistants are let go, this move could cost the university up to $13 million dollars.

We have structural problems in college football.  The coaches are the highest paid public officials in most states; the money is overwhelmingly corrupting; it is a business (as the development league for professional sports) that doesn't match the academic mission; and the players don't even receive any compensation.

They wish.

I think they'll be lucky if they can get someone like Neal Brown.

I am a college football fan and I agree.

In just about 13 days I imagine.

You'll get no argument out of me in regards to a lack of player compensation which is comparable to what they help to bring in but free tuition in addition to stipends is not chump change.

As far as the salaries of coaches go, big boy programs could pay head coaches far more than ten million dollars a year and still get a deal on the whole thing compared to what those coaches bring in.

Football at big boy programs fund all of the other sports that nobody cares about with the exception of a relative handful. I love Ohio State hockey and baseball but I am under no illusions that they are self-sufficient and do not have their existence to owe to anything other than football alone.

Kansas basketball, for as much of a blueblood as it is, was and remains irrelevant in terms of money. There is a reason that Kansas as an athletic department was ignored during the latest round of conference hopping. Kansas football is irrelevant which makes Kansas itself irrelevant when it comes to our specific topic.

Ohio State's Athletic Department is in the black. After football money goes to fund the largest number of scholarship sports in the country (at least as of two years or so ago) it gives some of whst is leftover back to the university itself. This is the norm for big boy programs.

Athletic success raises the number and quality of kids applying to that college, that has been shown to be true time and time again.

While your heart is in the right place I think it is somewhat misdirected.

Also...

ATTN TENNESSEE FANS: I will repeat my offer to lift the curse off Tennessee football if and when Phil Fulmer's fat cheating ass is delivered, alive so that he can be tortured, to the fifty yard line of Ohio Stadium. Your penance will continued to be paid until restitution and justice have been done, the fate of Tennessee football continues to be in your hands.

I'd get Chip Kelly on the line immediately if I were the Vols.
 
2017-11-12 08:47:25 PM  
The main problem, for me, is a lack of player development.

Someone let him coach?

You are Tennessee, so stop pretending you aren't Kentucky with 2 more teeth

That guy was a human farking troll. Anyway, whoever in the SEC takes a chance on Mike Leach is going give Alabama headaches. Hopefully it is Florida.
 
2017-11-12 09:26:47 PM  
Brady Hoke?!?  He has been involved in some massive trash can fires over his last three seasons coaching football:

2014 Michigan
2016 Oregon
2017 Tennessee

Woof.  Turriblefergodssakes.

Their football stadium holds over 100,000.  The way things are going, there's a reliable probability that actual attendance would (at best) be 50,000 so long as he remained coach.  Average ticket price is probably north of $60 and there are 7 or 8 home games (in alternating years).  You do the math and it is easy to see that they would likely have lost far in excess of $13 MM next year had they retained him.

ps..the players don't receive cash, but what they do get in the form of coaching, food, tutoring, pampering, etc. is worth around $150,000 per year.

I say this as a college sports fan: universities should not be the defacto minor league sports system for everything except baseball. It wouldn't break my heart if the system collapsed.
 
2017-11-13 12:01:54 AM  
He might not have been the best coach and maybe went 0-6 vs. the sec this year but he's got a 5 star heart and is a champion of life, brick by brick baby.

I hear Tom Crean is available...

Those manipulative extortionist are not the ones that bring in the money. It's the players and the game. The better the program the bigger a cheat their coach is.

Gruden isn't taking a pay cut for more work.  Kelly might be the sexy name, but I suspect they'll send feelers out to guys like Campbell at Iowa State.

That's two Tennessee coaches Mizzou has killed.  You want your coach gone?  We can handle it for a price.

Gruden is the most overrated coach ever, knows it deep down, and would be an idiot to give up his current job.

I agree and disagree.  The players do receive compensation, and some players are overpaid.  You can't tell me being the backup punter for Georgia is worth the $50,000 a year or so in cash and non-cash compensation.

The problem is it's a communism-like system where all the workers receive the same compensation  and the only one who makes any money is the government/college administration.

damn yanks: Those manipulative extortionist are not the ones that bring in the money. It's the players and the game. The better the program the bigger a cheat their coach is.


In college football coaches are the face of the program and the good ones are worth every penny and then some. Backyard football is fun but 100,000+ people aren't showing up to watch it.

Jones wasn't good.  But I think Tennessee needs to take a hard look at itself and re-set its expectations.  It hasn't been truly a major player in college football in over 20 years.  You can't just turn that around overnight.  They need to set expectations a lot lower, and take baby steps back to respectability.
