Another one of Doug Dickey's gems of a hire. Dickey didn't have a clue about almost any sport other than football. Mike Hamilton learned his craft well, picking up where Dickey left off, as far as poor hires go.

Where are all those O'Neil slurpers now? I know Hat isn't here anymore, but who else was on the O'Neil meat train?

They had to fire him now. He probably would have had a decent conference record. At least good enough to warrant another year.

Had decent wins over Texas, Stanford (who's down) and Dayton (who's down). Still....I'd at least seen what they did against Oregon.
You don't agree? O'Neill has a lifetime 216-241 record. So, his track record is pretty dismal, pretty poor coach really. For one thing, Haden is probably sending a subtle (or maybe not so subtle) message to Lane Kiffin concerning next season, and as aloof as Kiffin is, he probably has taken notice.

A losing conference record would have warranted another year?

They certainly had the basketball and football markets cornered in overrated coaches.
