The Worst SEC Coaching Firings of the Last 25 Years [Audio]

Subscribe to Tide 102.9 on

While fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide await the beginning of Nick Saban’s 11th season as Alabama’s head coach, 2017 also marks an historic milestone for the Southeastern Conference.

Twenty-five years ago, the SEC expanded to 12 teams and instituted a championship game for the first time in college football history.

Since 1992, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU and Tennessee have won at least one national championship and have played for the national championship a total of 14 times.

In the past 25 years, a number of national championship coaches including Gene Stallings, Phillip Fulmer, Steve Spurrier, Les Miles and Urban Meyer have come and gone from the SEC coaching scene.

During Wednesday’s edition of The Blitz, former Alabama fullback Martin Houston analyzed the worst coaching firings of the last 25 years.

Specifically, Houston studied the departures of Gene Stallings from Alabama, Phillip Fulmer from Tennessee, Mark Richt from Georgia and David Cutcliffe from Ole Miss.

The former Alabama fullback cited the successes of each coach within the last 12 months of their tenures and the ramifications that Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Georgia have experienced after letting go of Stallings, Fulmer, Cutcliffe and Richt respectively.

The Blitz kicks off live and local coverage of Alabama sports every weekday from 6-7 AM on Tide 102.9/100.9 and the radioPup app.
