True, but what is an acceptable performance for a coach? Win the conference 2 out 3 years? Make it to the playoffs annually and win one or two games?

Eventually would that become stale and we pull an LSU/Georgia and get rid of a great coach in hopes the grass is greener on the other side?

And..... I believe HCTG's faith statements are genuine. That doesn't concern me, and I actually appreciate his words. I'm beginning to be more concerned that his coaching ability isn't genuine, but will still give him the benefit if the doubt... at least for one more season.

Quote:Liberty Head Football Coach Turner Gill has announced that Dennis Wagner, assistant head coach and offensive line coach, has been relieved of his duties.

Wagner has served on Gill's staff for the last five seasons, guiding Liberty's offensive linemen. During his five-year tenure, 13 players earned All-Big South honors and 10 players were named to the VaSID All-State teams.

Last year, Jonathan Burgess, a former walk-on, capped off his stellar Liberty career by earned STATS FCS and Associated second-team All-America honors and being named to the CSN Fabulous Fifty All-America first team.

Some quotes from the article in there. Obviously the offensive line was atrocious this year but it has had some good results per the article. Right move? Wrong move? Something had to change.

Jerry said HCTG is safe for one more season. He wants the new AD and Gill to have one season together to right the ship.

I think this is a good decision. But , if he can't deliver 8 wins and a conference championship next year, I might think a change is in order.

This is good for Gill. I hope he gets a fair shake and turns Liberty into the program we think it can be. I am cheering for him.

This looks good for Liberty and potential coaches who would be afraid of Liberty firing coaches too quickly.

By year 6 you should be able to establish and stabalize a program.

That's true, but I'd say even earlier than that. Gill didn't inherit a dumpster fire. Rocco inherited a dumpster fire and turned us into a top 25 program. Gill arguably did better with Rocco's recruits.
