Shula Gone? Sounds Like It
It hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but the Tuscaloosa News is reporting that Mike Shula has been fired. Apparently the final straw was not his miserable performance on the sidelines or his inability to motivate his players, but his insistence on not firing ANY of his assistants, especially Dave Rader.
While loyalty is a valuable and honorable character trait, it should not be confused with blind stubborness. If that is indeed the reason, then Mike Shula will have been fired for the same thing that kept him from being a successful coach--unwillingness to change what wasn't working.
