My uncle has some friends that know coaches on the football coaching staff. According to them, Hope has already been informed that he won't be back next year. It makes sense since there have been rumors about Burke reaching out to potential candidates. If we win today, it would make sense to announce something soon before the bowl game. We need to find his replacement as soon as possible. If we lose, I'd expect an announcement to be made very soon. Believe what you will, but it appears Hope is gone, and I think that's something we can all be happy about.
