Mark Richt / Les Miles: Both Out of a Job by Monday?
It is a possibility that Mark Richt and Les Miles will each be coaching their final games at their respective universities tomorrow. The two embattled head coaches have been under fire from powerful boosters and intense fan bases for more that a month now. We are at the point where the trigger just might be pulled on both men after they walk off the field on Saturday. Their tenures don't appear to make it even into December. It doesn't sound as if the results of their two games will even have any bearing on their fates. Win, lose or draw there is a distinct likelihood that Georgia and LSU will both enter the already crowded arena of Division I schools searching for new head coaches. Richt and Miles are both successful SEC head coaches, but their programs have failed to meet the expectations of proud conference standards and expectations. If indeed they are both dismissed, here's hoping they both experience nothing but success in their future endeavors. This is deserved by both. They have each conducted themselves with class and represented their two universities well.
