This is telling, in regards to Evans making the same calculus he made before in NOT firing Durkin -- whatever it takes to save his own job. Hard to imagine any good reason why he should be entrusted with future athletic department decisions
Reminder, again: We're talking about an amateur football coach. That's it. A person who coaches amateurs. It doesn't matter if he's good or bad or mediocre at coaching the game of football. It doesn't matter what his record is. He's just a college football coach!
