Try to figure this out...
Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman fired Dino Gaudio after three seasons at Wake Forest. In his final two seasons, Guadio led the Demon Deacons to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances and made the round of 32 in his final season.
Wellman replaced Gaudio with Jeff Bzdelik, who is 34-60 in three seasons at the school without one winning season. He's 11-39 in the ACC, has won one conference road game in three seasons and the last time he coached a team with a winning record was 2007.
And Bzdelik still has a job.
This has to be a put-up-or-get-out season for Bzdelik, although the same could have been said going into this past year. To his credit, the Demon Deacons did pull off upsets of North Carolina State and Miami. He also started three freshmen.
With four starters returning, Bzdelik does not have many excuses. If he puts up another losing season, which would be his seventh straight as a head coach, and he still has a job, Wellman will need to explain his reasoning.
