According to published reports by the Tuscaloosa News, Alabama head basketball coach Mark Gottfried has been fired. Gottfried is not expected to finish out the remainder of the season, and it is believed that assistant coach Phillip Pearson will take over until season's end.
What can you say? It should have been done a long time ago, but I'm glad they got it out of the way now. His year-end firing was inevitable, so I'm glad we went ahead and got it out of the way so we can actually start looking for a decent replacement.
