Something is seriously wrong with you.

Maybe Ingram will make the announcement in July after the virus scare is over.

Congratulations Andy! I'm sure you will do a swell job! You know with all of the great tradition we have here at UAB.

Given the state of the program and that Ehsan was almost certainly told that if he didn't meet certain benchmarks he was out, Ingram should have a list in his desk drawer that he's edited and refined all season. In fact, if he did not have such a list he should be fired for incompetence.

Since he fired Ehsan the day after we found out the season’s over, I’m betting Ingram already has his mind made up.

He did. His mind was made up weeks before the end of the season.

Ingram knew weeks ago. All he was doing in the meantime was hoping that Ehsan tanked the conference tournament.

Being prepared for the likely contingency that he flamed out in the CUSA tournament, necessitating a firing vs just keeping his head in the sand and saying all is fine with a crappy coach... Yeah I can definitely see the latter as a viable plan.

The AD did the right thing, and I applaud him for it.

Because we all know that had UAB won in the conference tournament to make the NCAA that most everyone's misery of being with Ehsan as coach would be extended at least a year.

one miracle run in an awful conference tournament would not erase 4 years of awful coaching. he would've had to win a game or two in the big dance for me

This raises my opinion of Ingram, which wasn't very high. It should have been a foregone conclusion and turned out it was one. Business-oriented unemotional decisions is what we need out of our athletic leadership.

My hopes for the future are raised considerably with this show of competency.

I imagine the stretch of home losses would’ve sealed Ehsan’s fate.
