With the announcement of the firing of first year USM head
football coach Ellis Johnson after posting a winless 0 and 12 season. It's time
for the university community and supporters to come together in unity.
Johnson's firing—while unfortunate –was
pretty much a necessity. However, with
three years left on his contract at a price tag of over $700 thousand a
year added to the money it will take to hire another head coach plus some
possible assistant coach buy outs when a new head coach is hired, and you are
talking about a lot of coin. Especially
for a program already operating in the red. Couple that with the fact that Conference USA took a blow today with the
announcement that both Tulane and East Carolina are headed for the door to join
the Big East Conference and the football program at Southern Miss has a
boatload of woe. This after last year's
first ever 12 win season.
sudden departure earlier this year of Dr. Martha Saunders and long time
athletic director Richard Giannni and our image looks even gloomier. Let's hope and strive for the Southern Miss
community and supporters to come together in unity. If USM has ever needed to rehabilitate the football program it's now, and the fans
and supporters play a big role in that task.
