And he escaped punishment for it because LSU was more interested in profiting from his presence on its basketball team than making sure he received an education during his brief time on campus.

Is the coaching carousel ice-cold? | 247Sports

As we stand today, nine weeks into the college football season, there isn't a single Power Five head coach that deserves to be fired. That's not the hot take most people want to hear. We're in a bloodthirsty era of college football where multi-million dollar contracts demand results. When everyone's getting paid millions, somebody is always underachieving.
