    David Berri: How Can a New College Football Coach Avoid Getting Fired?

    boils down to three things:


    • take over a team that historically played poorly
    • schedule cream puffs (assuming your poor school can find some)
    • start poorly and improve


    Here's a 23 page pdf from2010 on why college Football coaches get fired:

    Well, that's just not nice. But really, whoever is in charge of scheduling our cream puffs needs to go to a witch doctor or something, cause they got the jinx somethin' wicked.

    I'm pretty sure we are still playing out games that Bruce Van De Velde scheduled. So If you want to go after someone, he's your man.

    Re: How can a College Football Coach avoid getting fired...

    Don't play a schedule that consistently ranks in The Top 5 Toughest Schedules in the country. 9 conference games and the EICC games are givens. Follow the Bill Snyder scheduling playbook. Games 11 and 12 against UMass and NDSU, or another approved patsy equivalent, look like good options.

    But with the B10 picking up Maryland and Rutgers, are we still going to be on their schedule?
