BC Football Coach Fired


NoHoJoe

Recommended Posts

BC is going to suffer for this. No big-time coach will want to coach somewhere where they prevent you from advancing your career. It's just like if an NFL team didn't give permission for a coordinator to interview for HC somewhere. Nobody would want to be a coordinator for that team (unless they're desperate.)

I think it was more a personal thing based on what was in the contract or what was said or whatever. But only bad can come out of this and hopefully Gene will understand that this is not a destination school like Florida or Michigan or even BC Hockey. Perhaps Skinner and York have spoiled Gene, though I am almost certain he's smarter than that. But then again now I'm hearing Phil Fulmer rumors... :rolleyes:

But, I think anyone who wants to be Jets head coach should be fired. :P

If he's interview for another job, he didn't want to be there. Fire the guy, he was jumping ship anyway. I guess we can laugh at him at his next gig when he's at best .500. Jagadinski is different than Dennis Frachionne, John L. Smith, etc. They are coaches who always have their eye out for another job and will leave at the first opportunity. What makes me laugh is that these guys usually fall flat on their face trying to move to a bigger program. Jagadinski is a program jumper and I'm glad for once a university canned one of these guys before he could screw them. Be a real man and stay at the school and build a program. Don't be a two-timer and always look for a better job, build that better job.

How is he different than any of us who may have our resumes out there and are willing to sit down with someone who can offer us more than we currently have? Most people who feel that they can do more than what they're doing seek out other opportunities (albeit not as publicly.)

He gets a :censored:-ton more cake...that's how. :P

Seriously though, you cannot compare his situation to us Joe Sixpacks. There aren't job boards for college football coaches. Whatever they do is usually conducted in intense media scrutiny (even if only in their local market). With that said, when you (supposedly) have a handshake agreement to not look for another gig for a certain amount of time, you don't have the common decency to inform your AD when someone wants to interview you, and then you bald-faced lie to said AD when he confronts you about the validity of a rumor he heard from a reporter, you give yourself the black eye...and your AD the expectation that you want out. So, the AD...to save face, yes...is pretty much forced to bounce your ass.

No comparison. No sympathy. Besides, Jags will get some NFL assistant job, so he'll make out juuuuust fine.

And we know one thing about the next BC coach...mo'fos will ask for permission to talk to him first, that's for damn sure.

I'm sure the Bowls won't care if the BC program takes a dive since they hated inviting them anyways.

Whys that? Do they not travel well for bowl games or something?

Right in one. There's a reason the ACC runner up has played in the Music City Bowl and Champs Sports Bowl the last two years.

You know, come to think of it I really was surprised at just how dismal the support was for Miami at the Emerald Bowl. I figured it was just because of the distance, but if Penn State can fill up nearly half of the Rose Bowl, then there's no reason that Miami fans couldn't at least take up even the smallest portion of AT&T Park (despite the different stages).

What USC fan? Are we talking Southern California or are we talking South Carolina? Either way, I'm not a fan of either. I have no allegiances. I don't root for any particular school. I just want to see good games played. So if you're trying to label me as a fan of one college team, nope. Now when I go to grad school, then we'll talk... wherever I end up at! :lol:

It's also the reason BC had such a long bowl winning streak until this year. Better bowls consistently passed over them in favor of teams with actual fan support, giving them a mismatch over their competition. They're sort of an inverted Notre Dame in that regard.

Is it just me, or is anything involving the Jets just a straight-up disaster for, oh... let's say, the last forty years?

While i understand the move the coach made, i understand why the AD did what he did as well.

The guy signed a contract, and then is interviewing trying to bail on the contract, and what's more, didn't tell the AD that he was looking to make the jump. Now while in most other forms of work, you never tell your boss you're interviewing for another job, it's different in sports.

Let's say Jags did get the Jets job. Now up at BC, there's a rush to get a new coach in, get to recruiting, and handeling all the other business that a college coach needs to handle. In that situation it's not unlikely that the team may stumble for a year, basically wasting for some of these kids, a year of eligibility.

I fault the coach. Don't sign the contract unless you understand what it means. I hope this stops the college coaching hopscotch for a little while.

Can someone explain to me why college's don't put non-compete clauses in the coaches contract's? It's simple you have want someone in for the long haul you put in a stipulation in the contract that if he elects to opt out at some point during the contract that he can not take another collegiate (or in this case professional) coaching job. Sure some coaches might balk at you but that basically shows that they are not someone you want to hire as the coach in the first place. Any decent coach would then use at as a recruiting tool because they can then say they are going to be there for the full time and point to the non-compete clause as evidence that you can believe him.

I understand why BC did what they did, you want someone comitted to the program as your head coach. If he is off doing job interviews with other organizations he is clearly not. However, it's their fault as they didn't put stipulations in the contract that would prevent him from doing this.

I'd expand this to be if either side opts out of the contract, then the coach cannot take another coaching job. Of course, this would mean I'd be trying to sign coaches to 20-year deals...
