Ok Starting this thread because it's now 3 full days since the season came to a thud.

No way Coach Evans should be keeping his job after five wins (not counting the 2 wins against NAIA teams) leading a D1 team in one of the largest cities in country at one of the Top 10 universities in the country. Just by grabbing players our of the FIU intramural league he should have won more games.

So let's hope the shoe drops soon.

Thank God the season is over... We looked like as pick up team out there... I stopped paying attention after 5 games.

Please get rid of this garbage coach.

Why does it take this long to fire a coach this bad?

I don't know, with the quick trigger that Pete has I can't believe he hasn't done it already. He might just want to bite the bullet and give Evans his last year on the contract with all the money he is spending on football, but I doubt it.

Any chance he doesn't do it?

Remember, This is the same guy that fired a coach after the final 4. So Evans isn't out of the woods yet!

Evans is a dead man walking. Garcia has made every hoops hire in April. Add to that the fact that every coach in his candidate pool is (most likely) in the NCAA tournament. He will either wait till his top choice loses or the coaches convention at the final four. Remember this isn't football, no 3 weeks in between games to hire assistants. Be patient!

plus they haven't moved on it not to take the luster away from the first couple days of Butch's spring practice....you an expect now that they are on spring break, sooner rather than later.

Yes, both of you are correct that most desirable candidates will be available after the tournament. Heck, there are always 1/2 surprise firings that we can pounce on and get a decent coach out of (see UCF last year getting the old Stanford coach, bet Stanford wishes they had him back).

Those major firings won't happen. Expect evans gone around or at final 4. Sooner would mean some school lost and the replacement is on that staff.

I get the appeal with Bell being an FIU alumni, but I think we need a coach with experience and recruiting pull. A P5 assistant would be the way to go.

Raja Bell's old man, maybe. Let's bring Shakey back, with a keeper.

For what it's worth, I've heard from people within Athletics that Evans will stay for another year because we can't afford to pay yet another fired coach. Lame excuse, but that's what I'm told.
