Feel bad for the guy. Moves his family to Southern Mississippi and gets canned after less than a year there.

USM is apparently flat-broke, too. Lots of stories about it. Wonder if Brett or a combo of big boosters pledged a major donation?

Going 0-12 immediately after 12-2 will not sit well with anyone associated with that program.

Welp! I'm thankful for what he did here, but I don't know if we have room for him back here. He should have stayed with the Gamecocks. I'm sure that buyout was good so I'm not super sad for him. I just hope he can land on his feet somewhere else.

He's not HC material. Bad hire by Southern Miss but good for us cause I love me some Whammy.

i don't...he thought the grass was greener when there was great potential for the future here...it is interesting to me how all these coaches who have left us the past few years haven't found the grass to be nearly as green as they once thought

National D1 A record was what they were saying on the radio a couple
of days ago. Biggest slide from one season to the next in College Football
history.

OH WELL... the chances you take when you want to be the guy who runs
the show. More Pay, More Responsibility, and More Expectations.

I figured his hiring was not gonna work out just because of the assistance he hired....Most were a bunch of klempzun rehashes...

I think he made poor choices for assistants. It was like he was returning the favor for anyone who had given him a job in the last 25 years. I bet he ends up as DC at GaTech.

I agree. I thought he would have lasted a little longer. At least long enough for the Klemzun rehashes to start backstabbing him to get his job.

Well Johnson took over a Southern Miss team that went 10-2 and upset top-10 ranked undefeated Houston team to win the C-USA Championship in 2011.

What did EJ do?

He led the team that returned 13 starters from that champsionship team to a 0-12 record including losses to some of the worst football teams you can find out there.

I've kinda kept up with Southern Miss's season this year, and EJ was very very disliked. Some objective college football people out there have said EJ has done the worst coaching job that they have ever seen.

With this news coming out where do you think he lands as a coordinator or better yet what coach or future coach do you think he winds up with as an assistant?

He's a good D coach and has tons of respect in the south. With the Auburn, Arky, UT, UK, NCST programs all to have new staffs soon, I'll bet we see him get picked up quickly as a DC or D position coach.

Default Re: Ellis Johnson was just fired apparently

While I am sorry that he got fired. I truly hate that. However, it did piss me off when he ditched his defensive players here just before the bowl game last year. I felt he disrespected them. Although, things have worked out just fine for SC since, and I have to say that I like the more aggressive Whammy approach.
