Fate of Coach Mike Shula

In the Wake of Alabama's 6-6 season in which they lost their last three games in a row to Mississippi State, LSU, and rival Auburn, rumors are running rampant regarding the status of Head Coach Mike Shula. News outlets are reporting that he has been fired (Bamaonline.com) and that he will be back next year (al.com - Huntsville Times sportswriter Paul Gattis).

The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Probably the most informed and credible source is Cecil Hurt of the Tuscaloosa News. Here is the latest from Cecil:

"The Tuscaloosa News has learned that the review of all aspects of the Crimson Tide football program is “ongoing,” and that no decisions — including any decision concerning the future of head coach Mike Shula or members of his staff — are expected this week, sources close to the University of Alabama athletic department said Tuesday night."
