    Re: Souers leaving NAU

    Did NAU have a change in administration lately? To me, it seems they are doing fairly typical for them at this point. They've kept Jerome for 20 years - why this suddenly?

    As we all know when something is this odd there is usually an embarrassing story behind it.

    Re: Souers leaving NAU

    He has been there for 20 years. So obviously the President and AD didn't hire him

    He is 60, and on the last year of his contract.

    Or it could be something as mundane as that. Timing is still strange though.

    I was thinking about this the other day. Probably the administration decided it was time for him to go after the first couple of games. Called him into the office on Monday and informed him that this would be his last season as HC at NAU. Told him that they could either do it the "easy way" (season-long retirement party) or the "hard way" (you fired). He's probably not happy about it but chose the somewhat more dignified way out.

    Either way, it's a lot better than the way our administration at the time handled the situation with Coach Patterson. Those admins are gone now and the athletics department has "mended fences" with the now-retired Coach P. He even came back for our spring game last year to say hi to a bunch of football alumni.

    Re: Souers leaving NAU

    Why not just keep him on and say you won't be renewing his contract after the final game of the season, or at the earliest, going into the final game? Why now?

    Now you have recruits choosing to lay off on their offers to play at NAU until they know who the new HC will be.
