    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:

    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.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    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.

    9 conference games and the EICC games are givens.

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