Since 99 we have fired Scandrett , Davis ,Todd , Wheeler as AD. Hayes , Small, Fobbs, Lee in football. Hunter in basketball. I forgot the woman's basketball coach we fired. That's 10 athletic contracts that A&T has bought out in the last 13 years. ( or maybe 9 cause Todd got reassigned)
Do you not think that money could have been better spent on the teams?
If this was the last year of his contract, i would have him to reapply for the job against other coaches and whomever the best canadiate is wins
I feel you on the firings, but all pretty much deserved it except for Hayes. Wheeler was a casualty of a tragic death, but he did make some bad hires.
To answer your question about if the money could have been better spent putting it toward the team? In general you shouldn't invest in a bad coach if he is proven to be bad. you are just throwing away money.
Let me break each firing down.
Small - Inherited a veteran team from Hayes to win the MEAC, but failed in recruiting and our program took a step backwards the following years and our APR woes started under his helm. Deserved to be canned. No way I invest in his team.
Fobbs - Dee Todd hire. Was in over his head from day 1. Recruits were really sub-parr. Several ex players hated him because of the quality of talent he was recruiting. i spoke to several. He also didn't help APR. No way I invest in his team.
Lee - I actually thought Lee was decent, but he was to loyal to a horrible staff. Didn't know how to hire and delegate properly. For that he deserved to be canned. I would have invested in him if he wasn't so damn stubborn about his staff short comings, but since he was then "deuces". Just wasn't HEAD coach material. What staff publically blames the kids?! That right there had me hot! You take the damn blame. Your the coach. Own your team! Boy I was heated when that staff did that. OK, breathe breathe
Hunter - I dont think I need to even address him!
