We all sort of know how small the college football world and fraternity is. There were "two" major firings in the State of Washington after last college football season. One was the firing of UW defensive coordinator and former University of Idaho coach Nick Holt. The other wasn't a single firing, per se, but was the firing of the entire Washington State football staff after four tumultuous seasons that never produced more than four wins. Among those let go from Wullf's staff was Jody Sears, a WSU Alumni. Fortunately, Sears was able to land a gig as defensive coordinator at Weber State. But, timing turned out to be everything for Sears. Just as Sears landed in Ogden, Weber State Coach John L. Smith was called by the University of Arkansas to come take the place of scandal embroiled, fired coach Bobby Petrino. Petrino had been involved with a 25 year old mistress that just so happened to be working for the University of Arkansas football team and receiving cash payments from Coach Petrino. The mistress was also was fired for her unethical conduct. Now, if you've been keeping track, we still have one unemployed person and one job to be filled. So, in a very Paul Harvey way, the above link will tell you the rest of the story. .
