Mackin Needs To Go
The next Head Football Coach needs to be hired by a new Athletics Director. Mackin has had some minor successes but we desperately need new leadership. I think he loves UAB but is simply in over his head.

The Haase hire I think will pan out. McGee has some tough decisions to make if he is going to cut it.

RE: Mackin Needs To Go
I'm not a fan of firing coaches in the middle of the season, and I'm not even suggesting that McGee needs to be fired immediately after the last game. But serious changes need to be made, publicly, if Mackin wants to maintain any real credibility

His current buyout is $700,000. Fahring some defensive coaches mid-season might not be such a bad idea though.

This is along the lines of what I was thinking as well.

Serious question: Do you want him involved in another UAB football coaching hire?

He has been directly running UAB athletic fundraising for over eleven years and we haven't built one thing in the most important sport in the department. We have seen our conference position downgraded and attendance drop in both major sports.

What has he done that was so great?

He went to a Blazertalk tailgate once and made a lot of supporters

I love how because our football team isn't good our AD needs to be fired. The health of our athletic department is actually pretty good. Face it, UAB may be the toughest D1 football job in the country.
