John Fourcade was truly one of the best quarterbacks to ever take the field at Ole Miss. He has a brilliant mind for football, and he will bring nothing but success to football with the Fairbanks Grizzlies! He is a proven winner!

John Fourcade can talk football but he obviously forgot how to play football. He should have gotten to know his players instead of the local women! They obviously took his common sense for the game of football...period. His past experiences in football is to be commended but he didn't make the Grizzlies better. He actually was a big distraction and forgot the love for the game. I understand business and the last time I checked, cutthroat spoils any business transaction or deals. He should of tried to explain to the players about the pay situation. Total dishonesty is just a poor excuse for a league coach. His sidekick Lee Mireles coached little league kids/high school before his big stage in the spotlight. I frankly feel he was giving a raw deal and got replaced instantly after a disappointing lost but Fourcade didn't do any better. The record speaks for itself if he's so good and knows football. He could of built a better team with what Fairbanks had instead of half players from the lower 48. Some of the talent recruited deserved to be on the team, but really, they weren't much better than what Fairbanks already had. That's not business, that's poor business planning.
