Wojo isn't bulletproof. But he is bulletproof as long as he continues to make the tournament. Just as any coach at any non-blue blood program would be.

Why anyone thinks a program would even think about firing a coach of a tournament bound team is beyond me.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Name this Coach...I Coached at this school for 13 years, compiling an overall record of 278-151(.653) overall, going to 8 NCAA tournaments, winning three league titles, 3 NIT appearances, made a Final four and a sweet 16 during my tenure. Now I did only make the tournament 1 time in my last four years at this school, not making a tournament at all my last two years, before getting fired. It should be noted that in my first 6 years at this school, I made the NCAA's 4 of 6 years(NIT the other two) with a Sweet 16 in my 2nd year, and followed that up with a final four in just my third year at the school.

Typically a Coach with that kind of pedigree can write his own length of time at said school. I could not unfortunately...

It's been said that the bronze medal winners tend to be happier than the silver medal winners. The bronze winners are all "Awesome! I won a medal!" while the silver winners think, "Dammit! I could have gotten gold!"

I think that also is influenced by many of the sports having a third-place playoff for bronze, so you actually "win" the bronze medal, whereas you have to lose the title game to be awarded the silver.

JTIII...who finished his last 2 seasons 15-18 (7-11, 8th in BE) and 14-18 (5-13, 9th in BE). And didn't make a postseason tournament either year. What does this have to do with TAMU's point?


But playing guess the random coach would probably be more enjoyable than reading some of the stupidity on here. So good job I guess?

You are JT3....who missed the tournament two seasons in a row before being fired.

Did you miss the part about firing a coach of a tournament bound team? Cause that was the whole point of my post.

I can actually think of one modern example of a coach from a non-blue blood getting fired after making the tournament with no off the court issues (IIRC). But it was from a fanbase way more entitled and arrogant than our own, and the coach did take a team that was ranked top 10 in the preseason and finished with one of the last two byes in tournament in his last season.....and that fanbase now greatly regrets the hiring decision they made after him....and the fired coach had some pretty successful seasons at his next stop to boot.

I actually had some fun figuring out who it was. Took me a couple of guesses....mainly because I was looking for coaches that got fired immediately after making the tournament

Rick Barnes. Made the tournament in 16 of the 17 seasons he was there and they canned him because they were getting sick of the early exits in the tournament. They had a very limited basketball history before him too. Be careful what you wish for.
