    Just heard on JOX that he's done - Suttles tweeted it out.

    Would they really fire him during the SEC Tournament, though? Thought there was an understanding those things didn't occur during conference tournaments.
    I think they'd rather you not, but due to the NCAA violations, he needed to go right away, his record was immaterial. I would hope the league office understands.

That being the case maybe he LET Goff tie the noose and hang himself? If so that was pretty sharp and we can maybe save that money and hire a legit power 5 coach?

    But if that's not the case I have serious doubts about Byrne.

    Byrne is a very well respected AD and to have doubts about him is ridiculous. The only doubt there has been is that Goff was a terrible hire. I'm sure Bryne was doing his due diligence and when it came time he put the hammer down.

    Another week or less and this will all be resolved.

    I'm glad they went to the media to save Bama baseball!

    It is not ridiculous to have had doubts before the fact, since Byrne gave the guy a vote of confidence just last week and the stories in the media were out BEFORE he made any kind of move, but no matter. It's done now. I am really looking forward to seeing what kind of hire our 'baseball guy' AD can make for a program that really needs so serious guidance.

    Even though the rumors were out there is a real chance Byrne didn't really know until this week when the story said the players and parents led a revolt to Bryne and started this whole deal of Goof being ran off. That would explain why he decided to fire him rather than give him another year. Think about that before we throw Byrne under the bus. Yes I'm very sure he heard the rumors I'm sure, but if the kids were not talking there is not much he could have done at the time the rumors went out. But once the kids/parents came to him he laid the hammer down and honestly I like that. He held Goof accountable and sent him walking.

    Byrne went so far as to sit in the dugout in several games as well. He was already keenly aware of what was going on. The AD just doesn't come sit in the dugout during ball games unless he's already caught wind of something.

    A public vote of confidence from the boss is not always a good sign.

    The new rule as of 2015 says that a player's scholarship cannot be revoked for quality of play. This rule only applies to Power 5 conferences. That is a big disadvantage for new coaches in any sport. There will be no more running off the bad apples. I can see the good and bad in this rule....but it is definitely bad as far as rebuilding.

    Only applies to P5? So he would have been able to do it at La Tech and get away with it. Probably figured he would be able to get away with it here, too.

    Keep in mind they can be removed from the roster... Taking a scholarship is a lot different than being removed from the roster. Obviously you'd be wasting a scholly on a kid at that point.

    Curious when Byrne was in the dugout. Not saying he wasn't, I asked a couple of players and they said they never saw him.
