Butch Davis, who somehow survived this long as coach at North Carolina despite a few embarrassing scandals, was fired today by the school.
The timing is absolutely bizarre. Why wait until after ACC media days? Why pull the trigger on this one month before the season? Why wasn’t this done months ago, when you had the opportunity (like after the parking ticket scandal blew up)? Hell, I thought Davis was gone last August after the agent business and the academic infractions were first exposed.
