I saw a report on ESPN that tells me we're stuck with Shannon for at least another full season: Three out of six black head coaches in Division 1A have either been fired or resigned [Ty Willingham at Washington, Sylvester Croom at Miss. State, Ron Price at Kansas State]. It doesn't matter that these guys all had years to get it done and still had mediocre teams. The stroy didn't even mention this. It's all about skin color. I wonder if this runs through the minds of ADs when they interview: Do I hire a black head coach and set myself up to get flamed by the media if he's lousy and I fire him?Another loss........When will the administration realize that Shannon cannot get the team up for a game. They're great in the first series.........unprepared and no emotion........that's Shannon. Get a real coach and make him DC !!!!!!!!!!
Shannon was a good coordinator but he's done a poor job as head coach. He hasn't attracted/recruited the talent everyone said he would and the team does not look prepared on the field. He's got the worst record at UM since Lou Saban in the '70s
