BREAKING NEWS AGAIN: Danny Ford to coach ECU?

What the hell?

It's not just a rumor: O'Cain and Lovett were fired

The State cites "multiple sources" for the dismissal of Clemson offensive coordinator Mike O'Cain and defensive coordinator John Lovett. Those sources say both men were "blindsided" by the decision. (More here.)

Meanwhile, the university is standing silent on the whole affair.

I'm not disappointed to see O'Cain go. He may have been the main reason we struggled on offense, and it's probably not a coincidence that quarterback Charlie Whitehurst had an off year with O'Cain as his mentor. But Lovett seemed to be doing a solid job on defense, despite many Tigernetters' protests about Clemson's inability to stop anybody on third down. (Yes, I've noticed that, too.)

We'll see what happens in the coming weeks. Hopefully we'll get some good people in there.
