The proverbial axe is looming for several college football coaches. It could be that Texas A&M head coach Dennis Franchione is about to get the pink slip after his Aggies lost to the University of Oklahoma on Saturday 42-14. Franchione has been unable to beat the Sooners since he has been coach.
Another coach who may be seeing the axe fall soon is University of Washington head coach Tyrone Willingham (9-22, third year, 2-6). Willingham who was literally given the shaft by Notre Dame may be gone if Washington, 0-5 in the Pac-10, loses at Stanford on Saturday. And the one that is the most certain is Bill Callahan at Nebraska. After the Huskers were humiliated on Saturday by Kansas 76-39, Callahan should be dusting off the For Sale sign because he is g-o-n-e.
In the category of may be going but not fired is LSU head coach Les Miles. He has been rumored to be wanting to be the head coach at his alma mater, Michigan. The only problem is that Lloyd Carr is still there and has his Michigan team 8-2 and ranked #13 in the latest coaches poll. LSU Chancellor Sean O'Keefe said he is confident he will not be looking for a new football coach. "I have absolutely no concern whatsoever," O'Keefe said. "I am absolutely satisfied he (Miles) is extremely satisfied here at LSU." Time will tell Sean.
