    Which SEC West coaches will not be here in 2013?

    Which of the coaches do you think is beginning their last season at their school? They could leave through being fired, retirement or moving to another job.

    John L. Smith and Les Miles. It's pretty much expected the Smith is just a fill in after Petrino-gate and I think LSU is done. Every team that Alabama has beaten on the "big stage" has faltered badly. (Texas, UGA, UF, Clemson, VT)
    The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.

    2015 at the latest, Mullen to Florida and Petrino to Auburn.

    I forgot to add a "None of the above" option for the poll, I guess there is no way to add it now?

    I voted for Smith. I considered Chizik, but I think he'll survive unless they go 3-9 or something like that.

    cheezee dip will survive for another year or two, the title will get him that far, and hopefully longer because it is so much fun watching them spiral downward

    He will fire some more assistants after this season, or possibly during the season, that will buy him 1 more year and then you can say good bye cheezedip. Mark it down!

    And his defensive coordinator, who will be back seeking employment in the San Fernando Valley area.

    JLS is easily the favorite.

    All the others will be at their jobs unless they go 0-12 or choose to leave for another job.

    If that's the case, I hope Cheeze Dip stays at the Barn a long time, but I agree that it seems like it is inevitable for Petrino to go there one day. It's like they deserve each other.

    John L. Smith is easily the favorite to not be there in 2013.

    With the way last season ended, Ole Les can't be comfortable around Louisnana right now. So it wouldn't surprise me that if LSU isn't playing for the National Championship this year, LSU might encourgae Les to persue another job. Not a given, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Cheese Doodle only gets canned if the Tigers get embarrassed this year. I mean "short shorts" type embarrassment on and off the field. I don't see (nor want) Cheese doodle going anywhere, cause Bama should have their way with Auburn for as long as want to.

    If Auburn has another lackluster year, the NC is not going to get him another year imo. Chizic is pretty much recognized as the team manager and psychologist for 2010. He kept a not very close team with a decades best QB from self destructing.

    Petrino to API, that's sounds possible.

    They will hook him up with a sweet young thing.

    Re: Which SEC West coaches will not be here in 2013?

    I chose Smith as an obvious one.

    Commentary on the others


    Saban - only if he retires, which don't think he's close to doing

    Frazee - not after just one season

    Sumlin - ditto

    That leaves us three guys to consider:

    1) Miles - the catch with Miles is that the whole of LSU would love to fire him for no other reason than he's not Saban.
    The problem with saying he's leaving is that I don't see him going to the NFL, and how many jobs are UP from LSU
    besides us? He's not going to the Big Ten unless it's UM, he's not going to the ACC. In fact, he's not going
    anywhere VOLUNTARILY.

    Now....if the team has residual hangover from last year and gets off to a 2000 Alabama start and never recovers, it
    is a miniscule possibility.

    This is a unique situation because:
    a) he has nowhere to go
    b) they have nobody better to replace him.


    2) Chizik - I think the national title bought him at least one year beyond this - and that's assuming this year does
    turn out to be a total disaster (which everyone predicts every year and never has been). So I think he's safe but
    the seat will get hot if this year is bad.

    3) Mullen - I think Dan Mullen will be gone (greater than 80% chance) for the following reasons:

    a) It is NOT impossible that State could be 7-0 going into their game with us. In fact, if this was the State team
    from 2010, you could probably take it to the bank. The only two teams of consequence they play prior to
    us are UT and Auburn (and even that's debated), both at home.
    b) That means that even a CLOSE loss to us will raise his stock considerably
    c) The loss of Bobby Petrino changes the calculus considerably as well
    d) State has TWO tough road games, us and LSU. Everything else is (to various degrees) winnable. They don't
    play Florida, Georgia, or South Carolina.

    It is NOT improbable that State COULD go 10-2. I don't think they will because it's just not done there. But if
    he does then he is going to be in better shape than ever to cash in and name his choice of whatever jobs are
    open.

    (Let me add - this might be the one scenario where LSU would fire Miles - if they could get Mullen after a 10-2 year
    at MSU).
