This report isn't really much of surprise. Several Hattiesburg area media outlets are reporting that the University of Southern Mississippi and head coach Ellis Johnson have parted ways.
Southern Miss went from playing for the Conference USA title in 2011 to an 0-12 season in 2012 (and the title of "Bottom of the Barrel" winner here at OSG Sports).
Johnson came to USM from South Carolina where he was defensive coordinator. Before that he was successful as a D-Coordinator at several SEC schools. And while considered a failure as a head coach, he will be in high demand as a coordinator.
We've floated a few times here on OSG Sports who we think should be the next coach. Brett Favre. But think about it. He's perfect. He's an alum. He's an assistant coach in high school. Come on, what college kid wouldn't get excited if Favre showed up in his living room to recruit him.
Admittedly, that's a bit of a pipe dream. But if it happens, EVERYONE who reads this should give US the credit for being the first ones to say.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. hahahahaha!
