Default Tom O'Brien Fired by NC State

http://www.sbnation.com/college-foot...football-coach

Kind of surprising to see them fire him. I thought he was doing a decent job. Maybe the fire was made with an eye towards NCST joining the SEC?

The fan base in Raleigh did not like him and word is he didn't get along with the new AD. Not sure who they will get that's any better, but they are a delusioinal bunch in Raleigh

I'm shocked, too. Thought he was safe for at least another year.

If Franklin gets a better job offer he will jump at it.

She's going to come after Franklin hard. He needed to go, the recruiting was horrible and they were way too inconsistent. This is the same AD that hired the fridge and had franklin all lined up to take over after him. We'll see if it is a better job. Helluvalot easier job to win 10 games. Will they spend the $$$? We'll see.

If they have their pay for play infrastructure in place they might try to hire Chizik and have a couple of good years.
