ESPN's Pat Forde Takes a Page From the Dennis Dodd School of Journalism

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Add Pat Forde as another national sports writer who thinks Syracuse made a bad move by hiring Doug Marrone. The criticism, as it's been for all naysayers of this move, is that:

...athletic director Darryl Gross goes out and hires an NFL assistant with no
head-coaching experience. Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah, with
freshly fired Greg Robinson, whose four-year tenure was an absolute train

I'll at least give him credit for ripping other major college football hires equally, and ranking Auburn's hiring of Gene Chizik as the worst (take notes Dodd).
