    Default Coaches on the Hot Seat

    So....the season is over for most teams. Do we have any predictions on coaching changes?

    Is the seat in Clarion starting to warm up? I know he's loved there but the results aren't following. That home loss to ESU was embarrassing.

    I know its not DII, but St Vincent's coach is out. Lake Erie also showed their coach the door.

    I don't think Clarion's coach deserves any speculation. The guy has far less to work with than most in his division, is making the least of any PSAC head coach, and is one of the more successful coaches convincing WPIAL big school kids to play DII ball.

    His last three years are also:

    4-7
    1-10
    4-7


    (9-24)

    I have no intel on anything...and no even less about the East. However.....I happened to be thinking the same with the picks i did.

    MOST LIKELY: Gannon and Seton Hill

    MAYBE: Clarion

    SHOCKING: I feel there really isn't one....but if I am going to fill in a response to a question that I myself proposed....I'll go with Mercyhurst.

    I have heard that Seton Hill is keeping Collins. How you can go 1-21 the last 2 seasons and keep your job is a disgrace to the Team and shows the University doesn’t care about the Football Program. SHU should have won 4-5 games this season and last and the only reason they did not is because of Collins. They should be thrown out of the PSAC if Collins isn’t fired. He is the worst Head Coach I have ever seen.

    I agree SH was an offensive night mare this year - JUST FYI - SHIP maybe the BEST OFFENSIVE team in 2019 - Mussina -those 2 wide outs (Gontarek/Eubanks) and now a running game with that #6 dude - where was he all season ??

    It's unfortunate but I think LIT AF is safe. For some reason the AD loves that idiot but she breaks Reilly's balls. If you look at her past coaching records, she doesn't know what it takes to win so he's probably safe. How she ever got an AD job still blows my mind!

    Sharing time, as he should have been. Very pedestrian. As I've said before, Shippensburg High's senior RB is better right now than any of the three who split time for the college this year.

    You can lay Sirb's 140 yards on Saturday squarely on the shoulders of a veteran offensive line.

    It makes me wonder about his contract and if they can't afford to pay him off. I doubt he's an at-will employee otherwise he probably would have been gone by now. I'm convinced that SHU views football as an enrollment driver and little else. So no need to make a major transaction to make a coaching change when win/loss the program is bringing 80-90 men to campus each year.

    Six years as an AD prior to coming to Gannon.

    Collins' contract is up. This was his last year.

    So ... if he is staying they are actually re-signing him.

    His contract is up and SHU does not support FB like their other sports. They can resign him on the cheap and he probably will take it, since there isn’t a school that could possibly consider hiring him to lead their program.

    She’s not respected by fans or coaches. Second sport at Gannon to be run into the toilet under her. Just clueless on how to fix it.

    I seriously question how much of a resume-builder it was for a future PSAC athletic director to have led a single-gender athletic program in the past. It has some connection, but it's like going from high school to college.
