Agreed. The AD could have waited until Monday. Wonder if the AD was just looking for an excuse to fire Niumatalolo? The article I read on ESPN gave me that feeling.
If you thought Stanford was something different when it comes to recruiting, the service academies take it to a whole other level. Firing the winningest coach in the program’s history is a huge mistake.
It will be interesting to see how long the AD keeps his job when their next hire struggles even more than Ken.
If I were the AD for a high academic Power 5 program, I’d have him on speed dial. He has more recruiting hoops to jump over than nearly any other program. Vanderbilt or Northwestern should scoop him up.
I would love to see him at somewhere a little better. Just because he’s a good dude.
