The way it generally works is you first make some position coach changes, then it's either the offensive or defensive coordinator (or both), and finally you pull the trigger and fire the head coach. Generally, I wouldn't anticipate a change and Defensive Coordinator in the middle of the season, so perhaps letting the DC go after this season will be accepted as a no brainer decision. However, if the play on defense continues through the first half of this season, maybe you make the announcement then so you can go out and try and get a head start on recruiting for future seasons.
Thanks for posting, WK. Arizona would have to pony up about $10 Mil to buyout Sumlin's contract so I don't think he is going anywhwere.
Arizona’s passing game was up and down against Hawaii. They threw for over 350 yards but missed a lot of scoring opportunities. One of the biggest questions coming into the season was the receiving corps. Five receivers had catches in the game and of that group there were two high school quarterbacks, a summer addition to the recruiting class who had no other known offers, and a former walk-on.
