Im more tired of losing.The only reason it would be understandable that he would be allowed another year after a five year season is simply because we're all tired of the revolving door coaching. I, and many fans, are past the "native son" situation (not just because of the win/loss column.) You are right, another losing season and he's probably going to have to hire some new assistants if he wants another chance.
If he has a 5-6 win season I could see it going either way as regards to firing/retaining him, and honestly I'd be fine either way as of right now (season circumstances can change that opinion either way). I'm tired of the losing but I also know that another re-start isn't ideal.
At the absolute most he has only two years left of 6 wins or less. Probably only two years of 7 or less.
I don't want to even fathom the thought of winning 0-4 this season and what that would mean.
We arent firing winning coaches. And that can kill a program to hold onto losing coaches. .
With the new rules we cant afford to do that.
