Pump the brakes. A hiring consulting firm picked McGee.

Now maybe the BOT wised up after Fisher and let us hire who we wanted. After paying the consulting firm to suggest him. That's a conspiracy I can get behind. Lol.

The buck stops at Mackin's desk. The consulting firm came up with choices, Mackin was very clear who was making the selection.

Mackin has tried but it hasn't been enough. Time to bring in an athletic director and a head coach with some experience. Let Brian stay on as VP of Fund Raising or something.

RE: Mackin Needs To Go
Hell if I was him, I'd be on the hunt for a job anyway. He'll never be able to do the things here that fans want. The board won't let him. The fanbase and fundraising has got to be damn near impossible to grow. I know he loves UAB but from what I've seen, HE can't win here. That's not an indictment of him or his skills as much as the job, time and place. If I was him, I'd probably be sick of it by now and looking to take what success I did have in the sports as resume builders for the next job. Jmo

Somehow Mackin is absolved for how it got to be so bad? At a lot of schools letting Callaway stay the extra year would be enough to can the AD. Now he looks to have made a bad hire and he still bears no responsibility? No wonder we suck so bad at UAB. We expect nothing from our leaders.

Maybe BG can apply for the job. Lol. He can also pony up for the buy out too. I'm tapped out.

Three years should be plenty to demonstrate you can get the job done. McGee should have us in a bowl by next season or be gone.

RE: Mackin Needs To Go
It's not that I expect nothing from him but to a large degree his hands are tied. We all know it. I think he has been successful in other areas beside football and fundraising because those are the areas he is allowed to be successful.
I do agree with the 3 yr on McGee thing. Half way into that and we look worse than we did before he got here if you ask me.

How can you fault Mackin for McGee not working out? Most of us were happy with the selection and rightfully so. McGee was one of the top assistant coaches in America. Things just aren't working out at this point.
