Default Re: Ellis Johnson was just fired apparently

I didn't expect great things from them this year, but nowhere near as bad as it ended up. I guess all the tater rejects as assistants di hurt him. And to be honest, the couple of times that I talked with him he didn't seem to have much of a personality. He's a pretty decent position coach and will land a job somewhere if thats what he wants.

He will probably wind up at clemson coaching somewhere on defense.

I got to say that would not be the worst move for either party.

My better half thinks USC may have nudged him out the door. I still think the Jeep Hunter trade was strange. We essentially traded positional coaches. Doesn't his wife still have her store in Columbia?

Default Re: Ellis Johnson was just fired apparently

SM used 5 different qb's this year. Many teams don't even have 5 qb's. That's pretty much not having a clue.

Ellis was a hell of a recruiter here and I don't want to see him at Clempson, but I always thought he was a little on the arrogant side in his interviews, always as if he thought he knew better than Spurrier.

As long as he doesn't go to Clemson, I don't care what he does.

He's got a 2.1 million buyout, so it's hard to feel too bad for the guy. He doesn't have to work anymore if he doesn't want to.

He might need to sit out to get the full buyout. That's why guys stay out after they get fired sometimes.

Interesting...

Southern Miss gives home game to Nebraska, gets $2.1 million needed to buy out coach | Dr. Saturday
By Frank Schwab
Dr. Saturday

(US Presswire)Southern Miss pulled off a trade with Nebraska that really doesn't jibe with the romantic and antiquated notion that college athletics aren't all about the money.
Southern Miss secured a home game in its three-year scheduling contract with Nebraska. The Golden Eagles fans, and players, had to be excited about that. But, a coach needed to be fired and bought out. And, according to Deadspin , Southern Miss agreed to let Nebraska host that 2013 game for almost exactly the amount of money that it needed to give coach Ellis Johnson when it fired him.
Deadspin, citing a letter between the schools' athletic directors that was dated last week, said Southern Miss agreed to transfer the home game to Nebraska for $2.125 million. The school had to pay Johnson $2.1 million when it fired him after an 0-12 season.
The Deadspin story -- which is a long and fascinating read on the various problems USM's athletic program has had lately, just one year after finishing 12-2 and ranked 20th in the final AP poll -- says that Southern Miss had already begun the process of selling the game to Nebraska before it fired Johnson. It apparently just worked out to about the same amount.
Business wise, this is the right decision. It trades one game in order to balance the books on a failed coach, and the Golden Eagles can move on without that hanging over their budget. It also avoids taking money from the university to pay it off. But, it does reinforce that above all else, college athletics is a pretty straightforward multimillion dollar business.
The Deadspin story said USM will get an allotment of 350 tickets for the Nebraska game. Quite a beneficial trade for Southern Miss' fans.
