Still, it took months, perhaps years, for those two to lose their jobs.
University of Miami head coach Randy Shannon was not so lucky.
Prior to Saturday’s Miami-South Florida game, a fan flew a banner behind an airplane around Sun Life Stadium reading “4 YEARS 0 ACC Titles LOTS OF EXCUSES FIRE SHANNON.”
Hours later, following the Canes’ 23-20 overtime loss to the Bulls, Shannon was let go as coach — even though he was given a four year extension prior to the season.
Miami was expected to compete for a BCS bid, perhaps even national title in 2010 after a promising 9-4 season last year and a high preseason ranking. They finished the regular season 7-5.
Earlier this week, Shannon was fatalistic but untroubled about his job security. “If they do it, they do it. I think someone will give me another job,” he told the Associated Press.

Things aren’t going to end well for Derek Jeter.
“Captain Jeter should have taken his lead from Captain Tek from a few years ago. The Sox offered him a fair salary, but Tek thought the grass was greener. he finally re-signed for a lot less money. Could this be the future of the Yankee Captain, (WHO CARES)!”
Is doing this worth $300?
