    That is too ****in funny. And not surprising at all. What is, is that it too CU so long to figure out his shenanigans. At least they didn't fall for it twice with JE....although they did wait two years.

    They promoted their GM. This is their bye week. Timing´s a little odd and a 2-3 start ain´t toooo terrible.

    It's never a bad time to fire Dan Hawkins.

    Do you realize just how hard it is to translate DH's Zen BS into French as spoken in Montreal? The newspapers were begging for this!

    Much better to terminate prematurely than to let him stay a year and a half too long.

    Canadians take their football more seriously than CU. WTF is this world coming to? America is no longer the land of the free and Canadians now love football? :huh:

    Hearing that his smugness and attitude towards critics was the issue. That and pro players call BS a lot quicker than CFB players.

    I think he got some sort of ancient curse at Machu Pichu.

    Let's hope not. I would watch him call a CFL game though.

    I think he has a great career in front of him coaching intramurals at an FCS school.

    Arash Madani @ArashMadani Make no mistake about it: The Hawkins firing hasn't been brewing since Week 1. It's been an issue since training camp. #CFL #Alouettes

    Arash Madani @ArashMadani

    In unison, the state of Colorado is saying "I told you so." #Hawkins #CFL


    Some tweets embedded in the article on his firing. There was also a post in the comments section that shouldn't surprise anyone here:

    The only surprise is that the firing came after a win. When you're new to the CFL as a head coach, you need to hire experienced coordinators, which he did not. It's like the Bart Andrus hiring part 2. The game and rules are too different from the NFL and College to not surround yourself with experience guys while you learn the nuances.

    That was quick, not surprising but quick.

    I wonder how much money he has left on his contract C$ this time.
