SEC Coaches that got fired for worse replacements
1. Poor Ole Bert w/ Jenn
2. Kevin Sumlin
3. The Good Reverend (He was a piece of shite that deserved to get fired, but he was a better coach than Fatt Luke).

I'm sure there are some good ones that I can't remember. Can y'all help me out with some others?

It's damn true, and any A&M fan with half a brain knows it.

A year ago 95% of this board would have said Les Miles getting replaced by his DLine coach...

Depends on what you go by. What he is doing now, then yeah. What he was doing then, nope.

This one technically still remains to be seen. Coach O isn't letting this be true without a fight, though - I will say that.

I'm sure LSU fans felt differently about Miles coming off of that championship win than they did when he got fired.

After two seasons:

Kevin Sumlin 20-6

Jimbo Fisher 17-9


I dont know if Sumlin was the better coach but its clear Jumbo hasnt necessarily fixed anything yet.

Dan Mullen is a better coach than shark fricker. He is probably a top 4 coach in the SEC.

Now, as a MSU fan, I'm going to take a shower after saying that.

I know you are trolling, but SoS differences between the 2 is huge.

I was tired of being good and never great.

Didnt know if O could get it done but I liked what he'd done in the interim roles at USC and LSU plus he was a Louisiana guy.

It wasnt a splashy hire and we didnt pay him 75 million dollars so I figured worst case scenario, we'd be looking again in a few years.

FWIW, Miles' coaching record outside of LSU is basically .500

Kind of why I was asking and I couldn't remember if he was fired outright or if it was a mutual thing. Someone was talking about Grant and this topic the other day or I wouldn't even have thought of it.

Take 2019 for instance.

Auburn won by like a touchdown.

Georgia won by like 6 points.

Clemson won by two touchdowns.

Alabama won by like 18.

LSU won by like 43.

It isnt like these were 3 point games or something.

I thought of that one too, but left it out because of the circumstances.
