He inherited a team that just went 12-2! How do you go from 12 wins to 0-12? I was so caught up in Bama/GA that I barely noticed he was let go earlier this week. Talk about a total disaster. Southern Miss had a streak of 18 straight winning seasons, too.
Not a good year there at all. Part of the problem may lie in the fact that it was originally planned for Ricky Bustle to be the team's OC, but as I understand it, Bustle had a health issue and became a position coach with another assistant, who had previously been in high school, being promoted to OC. Not sure if anyone else saw many USM games this year, but the team also appeared to quit down the stretch. Johnson will be fine though, as he's one of the better DC's in college football.

I watched them play BoiseSt during Bama's bye week. USM competed until about 14-0. Then they checked out, it was pretty embarrassing.
The players REALLY disliked the assistent coaches... And it was obvious they were not on the same page. Johnson didn't get to know many of his players on a personal level his first year.
I agree that Johnson is one of the better DC's in college football. I'd be surprised if he doesn't land on his feet as a DC quickly.
