It's got to be hard to fire a nice guy.
UT athletic director Mike O'Brien, has fired two nice guys in less than a month. Stan Joplin today, Mark Ehlen last month.
We all know what they say about where nice guys finish and apparently it's true in Toledo's case.
When he was hired in 1996, Joplin said he spent the last 14 years of his life preparing to be the head coach of his alma mater.
After 12 years, he's done.
Just like Mark Ehlen, Stan Joplin will be missed.
