Just heard from a very reliable source that FIU has fired their Head Coach.  First the lose their top pitcher to Oklahoma and now their coach.  I am surprised that Gator lasted as long as he did in this politically correct world in which we live in.  Any guesses who gets this job so late in the season?

I'd offer it to Bailey Castro if they aren't pulling an Earleywine

It was just him, or whole staff?

FIU has proven that they will not pay for a coach like Earleywine, and it is hard to find someone to take a 50K per year job and try to survive in Miami on it. Gator had Heather Gelbard on staff, so maybe she becomes the interim until they can find a suitable replacement.

"Pulling an Earleywine" was my reference to a school whacking the head coach after fall games have been played and just handing the gig to his assistants

Hilary Barrow was his only female full time assistant and she's at Quinnipiac.  There's still good talent there and I'm sure a lot of folks will figure how to make due in South Florida. (BTW - I posted this yesterday in the D1 coaching changes thread)

Reminds me of the amazing ascension of McClendon/Torina... 131-106 at FIU and gets the LSU gig.

Hope she sends Murphy an envelope filled with cash every Christmas

I think that we will find her record from this point forward migrating toward her FIU record now that all of the pitching she was gifted is gone. Hell, she might be asking Murphy for a job when it is all said and done.
