      If you don’t perform well at your job, you are let go. It sucks and sometimes not totally your fault. That being said this is a common watercooler talk and part of being a coach. Results get paid, lack of gets relocation.

        The last two wins by Emporia has me pausing; I don't know why but I think Higgins, and it may not be because he's let go but goes somewhere else. If NSU moves on from Robinson does Higgins go back to Oklahoma and try at NSU?

          No way. They are not willing to invest in their football.

            In addition to Hookem’s point, why would Higgins leave ESU? He has done well there, but he hasn’t won a league title yet, and a move to NSU would push that goal back a LOT.

              Plus he already gets the Oklahoma kids to come to ESU. Now if UCO job opened up....

                There have been a lot of stupid posts on this site over the years but this might just take the cake. Leave your alma mater in your wife’s hometown, and a program that you have taken to the playoff in three of the last five years for a program that hasn’t won three games in the last five years? That’s some interesting logic.

                  That’s a great point.

                    Higgins is an ESU alum? I had forgotten that. Yeah, no way he leaves ESU of his own volition.

                      I hope that none of them get fired. I know two of them and they are very high quality people. That being said, TDs&Beer makes a very valid point about results; this is especially true in football, and not nearly so true in sports of lesser profile. I could see NSU and / or MSSU making a change based on the number of losses over the past several years but don't really know of course. I hope they give those guys some more time (all of them in fact) but understand if the decision to let them go is made. Sucks for them, and for their assistants....and for all of their families. This is the harsh reality but one that their families (maybe not little kids if they have them), are aware of; no matter how you slice it, it's just terrible for their families. This is one of the reasons I couldn't ever have been an effective administrator; I don't think I'd ever have the ability to let somebody go unless it was for moral turpitude.

                      PS
                      I don't think Schurig or Svoboda in any way really deserve even being on a poll for being let go. Again, I don't have the character of an administrator so take what I say with a grain of salt.

                        I attended a coaching clinic years ago and a coach by the name of Lee Corso was talking. He said, "There are two kinds of coaches, those that have been fired and those that are about to be!"

                          I would love to have Higgins back. He has coached twice at nsu and both times we were more successful than we are now.
