Welp, we haven’t fired up the ole Coaching Carousel since 2019 (which had some familiar faces) and we certainly didn't expect to have to dust this off in mid-November...but here we are. As you may or may not have heard, Jimbo Fisher was officially fired by Texas A&M on Sunday. Which means it’s officially time to HOP ON and BUCKLE UP, Ags — it’s gonna be a wild ride.

Some expect it to happen after the season but another rumor is that big money boosters that are willing to pay Pittman's buyout are trying to influence the AD on who to hire which the AD isn't going for so it may be a stalemate.

36 hours after we thumped Mississippi State 51-10, the head coaches of both teams were fired. About 24 hours after Texas A&M fired Jimbo Fisher, Mississippi State fired Zach Arnett.

Arkansas is headed for a 4-8 (1-7 SEC) finish. Another blowout loss to Missouri at home in their season finale on Blak Friday would likely be the last straw for Sam Pittman. It's crazy how Arkansas had been competitive all year. Before an embarrassing 48-10 loss to Auburn at home this past Saturday, 5 of their previous 6 losses had been decided by 7 points or less, including all 3 road losses at LSU, Ole Miss, and Alabama.

Vanderbilt is headed for a 10-game losing streak that would result in a 2-10 (0-8 SEC) finish for the 2nd time in 3 years. Vanderbilt lost all 8 of their games against Power 5 teams, including all 7 SEC games by 16+ points each. They are on a bye week before their season finale at Tennessee. Another blowout loss in Knoxville would likely be the last straw for Clark Lea.

OUR FIRST UPDATE: David Braun is being promoted from Interim to full-time HC at Northwestern, per ESPN.

It's...a boring update. Speaking of updates, if you ever notice that the map above doesn't look updated, you'll need to refresh the page.

Wow.
He had an eight year run at Syracuse with that record!
Fisher six year record here doesn't look that bad compared to Baber's.
How long ago was it that he coach at A&M?
I just remembered his offense play calling was very unproductive.

Looks like there's a report that four candidates have now done a second round interview with MSU: Jonathan Smith, Jedd Fisch, Jason Candle (Toledo), and Elko. I've also read somewhere that Dave Doeren (NC State) might be in the mix.

It's easy to remember when he was here. He was OC that was replaced by Sumlin mid way through 2002, year that RC was fired.

The graphic is updated, but probably cached for you. If you're on web, try refreshing the page. If you're on the app, click to open the image and then refresh if necessary.
