Yesterday Brian VanGorder (formerly of the Georgia Bulldogs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Georgia Southern Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, and South Carolina Gamecocks) chose to return to the Atlanta Falcons because college, errr, the pros was the place for him.
Didn't VanGorder just leave the Falcons a little over a month ago?
He sure did. And now he’s making Nick Saban and Bobby Petrino look like rocks of consistency.
There is a difference though. Apparently, VanGorder never signed a contract. Plus, it’s not like he left in the middle of the season.
But the funny part is who Steve Spurrier hired to replace him as coach at the University of South Carolina: Ellis Johnson, formerly of the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Johnson left his position at Mississippi State around a month ago to be the new defensive coordinator at Arkansas.
Then he moved on to join sleazeball extraordinaire, Bobby Petrino, to rebuild the Razorbacks. Well, that marriage also lasted just a month.
Now Arkansas is the odd man out: The only party without a defensive coordinator. I think it is great. Petrino deserves it.
I just wonder if he thinks there is any loyalty left in football anymore.
