The bottom line IS attendance/money and recruiting, and they're doing fine in that regard. So see what Kiffin does for another year with a re-juggling of the assistant coaches and without the big expectations, while the resumes pour in. Partly, the timing for firing is lousy, unless Haden's been planning a coup since mid-year. And you've still got the effect of the NCAA sanctions impacting depth. So, eat away at another year of that with Kiffin as the sacrificial lamb. If it doesn't look like he can at least win nine games and beat a Texas in an Alamo Bowl next season, you'd hope to see that by mid-year, and you can start contacting people and orchestrating a planned transition, while still showing that you supported your coach for the standard three years. Plus, he may also be dealing with replacing O'Neill, who is in a similar sacrificial lamb role with their hoops sanctions. Replacing both major sport coaches in one year might be a lot to have on the AD's plate.
