So glad to hear yesterday that Quin Snyder is finally out at Mizzou.
I've read how some Mizzou supporters actually liked this hire when it happened, but that it's gone downhill since the first few seasons.
I never liked the decision. Quin Snyder is a Dukie, and a Dukie with no previous head coaching experience. So, what basis was he hired under? And why was his first job in a superconference like the Big 12? Let's look at three of Mizzou's major rivals, Arkansas, Kansas, and Illinois. How many of those teams, all of whom have endured coaching changes in the last few years, hired a coach with no head coaching experience? That's right --- None.
Snyder needs to get a job at a mid-major school or lower to learn how to coach before he tries to return to the major college coaching circles, but I'd be wary of hiring him since he also carries NCAA scandals in his wake....
