Mario Cristobal built FIU from arguably the worst program in FBS into a bowl team. He turned down multiple better jobs to stay with the Golden Panthers. He was rumored to be a candidate for the USF job. FIU just fired him after a 3-9 season. That’s just silly.
Cristobal went 1-3 out of conference, losing at Duke and UCF and at home to Louisville by a touchdown. He went 2-6 in the Sun Belt, losing four games by a touchdown or less. FIU thinks it can do better, apparently. Good luck with that.
