UNC Wilmington fired CB McGrath today. They were 5-14 with only 1 (!) win against a D1 team. Also his best player bailed to go play pro ball in Japan. Only lasted 2.5 seasons. UNCW went right in the gutter again when Keatts left for NC State.

Also, Central Arkansas is open too as they put their coach on leave then got rid of him a week or two later. There's still that situation with Walter McCarty being on leave at Evansville too. Similarly North Carolina A&T's coach (Jay Joyner) is "suspended indefinitely." Would be a safe bet those jobs open too as the legal department at each institution looks for a way out.

Way too early to speculate on what other jobs may open, but Fordham, Wake Forest, and of course the big one, Central Connecticut State are safe bets.

I’m wondering if that young Nicholls (Lousiana) coach Austin Claunch will move into one of those openings in the Southeast. He seems to be a pretty impressive coach (and ambitious) at a school with 1/5 the monetary resources as any AE school has for athletics. I’d bet we see his name pop up in thpoi’s conversation over the next few years.

Manning's deal at Wake is fully guaranteed through 2025. The buyout after this season would be in excess of $18M. His firing is far from a sure thing.
