Default Re: Tom O'Brien Fired by NC State

btw, when did "release" start to replace the word "fired". the nc state people keep using the word "released"..
1.i am glad he was released
2.its about time he was released
3.i cant believe he was granted a release with the year he had.

its called FIRED. TOB got his sourpuss ass fired.

His record was 40-35 overall and 22-26 in the ACC. Wonder why it took them so long to get rid of him. The NC State people want in the SEC in a bad way. They got themselves an SEC basketball coach and you see what happens.

Too many high profile jobs open right now.

If they can't get Franklin (I'm skeptical, he'll have bigger opportunities) say hello to a coordinator getting his first head coaching job.

Yep. But only if Morris serves as OC as well. Can you imagine Dabo and his efense facing Morris's offense every year without having the benefit of the same offense with which to counter? Imagine the Clemson/ NC State game from this year, but without Morris calling plays for the tigers.

Dabo probably won't last a year after Morris is gone. If he thinks an ACC championship will keep him alive, he need look no further than Auburn to see that even a national title won't keep you on board if you go in the toilet in today's competitive football market.

Kind of sad, really. I personally enjoy having him as a foe and a guaranteed win. If Morris stays, he might last for a while. Ticket sales are still very good. Money trumps all.

^ This. With a weaker offense, Clemson would have a bad year next year. And Dabo would be gone.

You could be right. Interesting to see if anyone has been taking notes (Jeff Scott) while Morris has been in Clemson or who Clemson would hire.

I'm hearing the same thing...Franklin is likely to sign a long-term deal to keep him in Nashville, and Debbie Yow (the State AD) wants to hire someone who will put in an "exciting" offense.

Well, "exciting" for most games anyway.

I think the only reason this didn't happen sooner is because, until this year they would underperform most of the year, but beat the tar holes to close out the season, and everything was forgotten. Now that they lost to the holes, for the first time in like five years, something had to change.
I also think Debbie Yow saw that with Fedora, the holes are going to be on upswing, and State couldn't make progress with TOB.

Why doesn't NC State play UNC the last game of the season every year?

Never understood that

Until a few years ago, UNC played Duke the last game of the season since that is their rival game not NCST.
