Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart announced on Sunday afternoon that Volunteers head coach Derek Dooley has been relieved of his duties effective immediately. Volunteers offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will serve as interim head coach for the season-ending game against Kentucky.
Dooley, who posted a 15-21 record with one bowl appearance in three seasons in Knoxville, failed to revive a once-proud Tennessee program, winning only four SEC games in three years while losing to Vanderbilt and Kentucky over the last two years. [Read more »]
Western Michigan athletic director Kathy Beauregard announced today that the school has relieved head football coach Bill Cubit of his duties, one day after the Broncos finished the 2012 season with a 4-8 record.
Cubit, who took over as Broncos head coach in 2005 after a two year stint as Stanford offensive coordinator, posted a 51-47 record at Western Michigan and led the Broncos to three bowl games in his eight seasons as head coach.
Western Michigan experienced a great deal of success under Cubit’s leadership, but the team’s inability to make the most of their pre-season hype over the past few years—they were often picked to win the MAC West, which they never accomplished—along with the team’s 29-23 loss to an Eastern Michigan team that came into the game with a 1-9 record ultimately cost Cubit his job.

The Gilmer Bobcats have had an excellent 2012 season on the gridiron, putting together a 8-2 record and clinching a spot in the state playoffs. The success on the field has been attributed to big plays by the team, which as a result has put several of the school’s records in danger.
The Gilmer Bobcats’ football team will take on the Marist War Eagles in the first round of the state playoffs on November 16th.
The Bobcats, who hold a 8-2 record and are the #3 team in Region 7-AAAA, will be traveling to Hughes-Spalding Stadium to face the War Eagles, who have posted a 9-1 record including eight consecutive victories and are the #1 team in Region 6-AAAA.
Kentucky Wildcats athletic director Mitch Barnhart announced Sunday on UKAthletics.com that head coach Joker Phillips will not return to the program in 2013.

The Idaho Vandals became the first FBS school to make a head coaching change during this season, as the school announced on Sunday that Robb Akey had been relieved of his duties, effective immediately.
Akey, who was in the middle of his sixth season as Vandals head coach, posted a 20-50 record at Idaho with the highpoint coming in the 2009 season, when the Vandals finished the year 8-5 and won the Humanitarian Bowl. [Read more »]
This Saturday, October 27th is the day that the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party kicks off again between the #2 Florida Gators and the #10 Georgia Bulldogs, pitting two fierce rivals against each other yet again.
Rivalries in college football are like popcorn at the movies: it’s a huge part of what makes the whole experience so enjoyable. However, I think the scope of a “rivalry game” isn’t quite narrow enough, so I feel the need to set the record straight. [Read more »]
Welcome back to another edition of the Fetch Football Forum, and as one of my colleagues likes to say, it’s been too long since I last left you. In the time that has passed since the last Forum update, we’ve seen a multitude of big wins, thrilling endings, and embarrassing losses in the college football world, which has led to some fan bases being thrilled with their team’s head coach and others not so much.
Today we look at some of the SEC head coaches that may want to have some boxes handy in their office to pack up their belongings once the inevitable occurs. [Read more »]
