Like others have mentioned, I think they’re tight lipped on firing Pruitt until after the new enrollees attend classes on Wednesday, Jan 20. Keep it ambiguous until these kids go to their first class.
Let’s make predictions:
-Pruitt fired by the end of next week
-Steele named interim HC and...
If he hire Marrone we can just cement ourselves in the cellar of the East.
NCAA: 25-25 (.500)
NFL: 40-61 (.396)
That won’t cut it in the SEC East. He’d be sub .500 here. We need a proven winner.
I wouldn’t be surprised by this at all. It’s actually much better than just hiring a guy from the leftovers. With an interim you can spend the next 10 months planning the replacement. It’s what we should have done post Kiffin with Kippy Brown.
