    Auburn Fires Lebo. I see it setting up right now

    Auburn is coming after Gmac. No doubt. ON the bright side I am glad we did not get Lebo. He was all but going to sign on the line and his wife said "No Thank You".

    So we at least avoided that 6 years of crappy coaching.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Yep. We just traded it for 4 years and counting of crappy coachng.

    I've been calling for the Gmac to Auburn move for weeks now. Those guys just love taking our sloppy seconds, and JP seems to do a bang up job when he gets another chance at a major hire. Come on Auburn, make it happen! Come on JP, find us our bball version of CPR!

    Re: Auburn Fires Lebo. I see it setting up right now

    Maybe Jacobson to Auburn and then GMac to UNI. Or Jacobson to anywhere and then GMac to UNI. Come on UNI, get Ben that 1st round win and maybe this chain of events could happen.

    Auburn had to fire that bum, especially with Bama getting Anthony Grant last year.

    Re: Auburn Fires Lebo. I see it setting up right now

    As of right now, we have DePaul, Oregon, St. Johns, and Auburn looking for coaches - 1 each from the Pac10 and SEC and two from the BEast. We know there's a high liklihood of one more from the b10. I bet Oregon pays $2M + per and Auburn hits $1.7.

    Re: Auburn Fires Lebo. I see it setting up right now

    I posted a thread several weeks ago (well, probably over a month ago) re: the candidates to replace LE when he got fired. Only Dana Altmann is still a head coach tonight.

    Ray Lopes - resigned after recruiting violations
    Steve McClain - fired by Wyoming
    Jeff Lebo - fired by Auburn
    WM himself

    It just shows there's no guarantee in getting a new coach: some coaches can be hot commodity in a season and can get canned the next season.

    I have no opinion on McD - it's up to JP to decide whether he thinks McD is the right man or not. But it just shows that we can get a new Lickliter or a new Jeff Capel.

    Actually, Lebo was under consideration after Eustachy was fired, not Morgan. Jeff Lebo was actually our frontrunner until, as stated before, his wife pulled the plug on the move.
