    The point Embree was making was not that he was fired because of his race, but that black head coaches who get fired are less likely to get re-hired as a head coach than a fired white head coach. He mentioned Ty Willingham as an example of the only black head coach who actually did get another shot.

    Re: The Right Man for Auburn - Coach Ed Generro

    I saw one of the talking heads, Brady Ackerman I think, on SEC on CSS here in Atlanta point out that he thought Hudspeth from ULM would emerge as a front runner for the job at the Barn

    Any thoughts?

    Wasn't Willingham at Stanford, Notre Dame, and Washington? seems like a bad choice to single out.
    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    Sorry, I said it wrong. Embree stated that Willingham was the one example he could think of who DID get another shot at being a HC.

    Re: The Right Man for Auburn - Coach Ed Generro

    Trooper Taylor should be named APIMhead coach today.,who else is more All In, More Fambly. So what he waves a towel & wears his cap backwards? Clearly he is qualified.

    If he is not hired/promoted the Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, President Obama & more importantly Charles Barkley should call out API.

    Thats only fair.

    Some of their sites call it a Done Deal approved by Mike Slime to be announced Sunday with TT & BVG staying. Unreal.

    FWIW, apparently Max Howell is saying Petrino is not happening.

    I always thought Ty got a raw deal at Notre Dame (another reason I'll never root for them). Weiss won with the guys that Willingham recruited. So Ty never got to cook with his own groceries.

    In fairness, though, Willingham DID get another job at Washington right after ND and it ended horribly. And for anyone interested, Willingham (who is much older than he looks) is now the women's golf coach at Stanford

    He also said we may have an invasion of Stoops brothers in the SEC.

    We already have one, let's have another! I assume it would be Mike, but either is fine. Heck, bring all three!

    Mack, I fixed my original post. I botched it the first time - Embree said Ty was the only black head coach who DID get a second shot.
