No News Til Next Week?

The Mobile Press-Register is reporting that no decisions will be made until after the Thanksgiving holiday:

The future of University of Alabama football coach Mike Shula remained unclear on Monday, and multiple members of the board of trustees said no definitive decision is expected through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

University president Robert Witt is scheduled to leave town today for the Thanksgiving break, and, presumably, to give intense consideration to Shula's status.

On a selfish note, I don't want to wait that long, but on an empathetic note, it sucks for the coaches to have to spend the break with their families wondering if they are going to have jobs next week.  I know Shula gets a $4 million payday so, you know, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR, but I have to feel for the rest of the coaches since they'll all be scrambling to find new jobs and having to move again.
