College football’s coaching carousel is already spinning at warp speed, as USC fired Lane Kiffin on Sunday after losing to Arizona State, and UConn canned Paul Pasqualoni on Monday.
Needless to say, the dominoes in what could be a very busy coaching cycle are beginning to fall.
According to Orangebloods.com, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds is expected to retire on Tuesday.
Dodds retirement could be the start of a busy couple of months at Texas. Coach Mack Brown is on the hot seat, and Dodds is one of his biggest supporters.
However, with Dodds stepping aside and a new athletic director coming in, Brown may be coaching his final season in Austin.
Of course, the next eight games will have a large role in determining Brown’s future. However, a 2-2 start certainly hasn’t helped his job status and finishing 8-4 would be a disappointment for a team that has arguably the most talent in the Big 12.
Is Brown the next domino to fall? Keep an eye on the Oct. 12 date against Oklahoma. The Sooners have dominated the Longhorns in back-to-back years and another blowout loss would not sit well in Austin.
