    Coach Mac said on the radio that he terminated assistant coaches after ONE year because he felt they weren't getting the job done. Now he is complaining that a coach was terminated after coaching 200% longer than the tenure Mac previously allowed.
    Hmmm.

    Hmmm indeed.

    Big Mac's pride is really wounded and when your pride is wounded, rational thinking is one of those last things on your mind.

    Mac's emotional. He was always able to make personnel decisions for the good of his organization, even when he knew it would hurt good men and their families. Embree was willing to do the same (and it was one of the better arguments for keeping him - an argument Mac is also using). Hawkins' Achilles Heel is probably that he wasn't willing to do this and hung on to coaches who weren't getting it done.

    In this case, Mac disagrees with Bohn making this personnel decision and has his reasons for it. Mac knows the business and if he wasn't emotional right now he wouldn't be making some of the arguments that he has. This isn't a strong case for him to have made.

    that could either be great radio, or a big giant disaster. (or both I suppose)

    Under normal circumstances it may not be a very big deal, but in his case his emotion have led him to attack the program publicly creating national interest. The guy owes Colorado an apology, but he is too butt hurt and stubborn to do such a thing.

    Yeah, but he always made sure they were white guys that would have no problem getting another job.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it goes back somewhat to when Skippy was hired over Simmons (who was Mac's choice) in 1994. I also wouldn't be surprised if race did play a part in that decision (a black coordinator passed over for a white position coach who was perceived to be the next wunderkind of offense).
