Texas A&M fires R.C. Slocum


Recommended Posts

Like him or not he has had one of the best winning percentages of any Head Coach over the last eight years or so in Major College Football.


As KSU said he'll be getting some phonecalls soon. Maybe he'll hook up with a decent Athletic Dept. this time.

My only complaint I had was everyone always throws his record out there when they talk about him. Winningest A&M head coach ever etc...


Here's the two stats that bug me the most (and most people won't talk about)


Before the Big 12: 68-15-2 (81.1%) 85 games

After Big 12 Record: 49-26 (65.3%) 75 games


Bowl game record: 3-8 (27.3%)

4 losses at the Cotton Bowl

1 loss at the Hancock bowl

1 loss at the Sugar bowl

1-1 at the Alamo Bowl

1 loss at the Independence Bowl

1 win at the Holiday bowl

1 win at the Galleryfurniture.com bowl


Things were nice and dandy when we got to play in that SWC for all those years but it definitely shows he can't compete with the big boys.

Blitz:  Who would you like to see replace Slocum and who are the candidates they are considering?

Sadly, Spain ... I am not sure who I would like to see replace him as I don't really track college football well enough to know likely candidates. I just know that it was time.


Clearly if I could have my pick I would have Jimmy Johnson (just off the top of my head). That will never happen.


Talk is that there is heavy interest in Dennis Franchione.

Franchione was supposedly contacted by the Aggies and in response, Alabama extended his contract and gave him a HUGE raise to keep him in Tuscaloosa. I havent heard any names being mentioned yet but I will post when I hear any rumors out there...

Looks like Franchione is the man...


Franchione reportedly will receive five-year deal

According to a report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dennis Franchione has reached an agreement to become the new coach at Texas A&M.


Franchione was scheduled to meet with Texas A&M officials Thursday, just three days after R.C. Slocum was fired after 14 seasons with the Aggies. Franchione and his wife Kim boarded a private

If anyone can turn that moribund program around, its Coach Fran..

I hope so. This year wasn't all bad. The offense finally showed signs of life with the new offensive coordinator and the true freshman at QB. If only the defense hadn't fallen apart. I think Coach Fran has a good pool of talent to work with and hope that he can truely get things turned around.


I have been a long time proponent of dumping Slocum and at this point am happy with his replacement.
