did anyone else see this coming?

Actually, yes. He got crucified by the faculty and several student groups for defending his suspended football players. And I seriously doubt the school's administration was pleased with his public stance.

When the graphic details of the incident emerged, I figured he was probably toast. He was just a career assistant who got the job (last year?) when the previous HC had to retire for health reasons. He wasn't irreplaceable enough to survive the political sh*t storm.

Yeah, I agree with dad. I'd have been more surprised if he survived. It would be one thing if he came in and won his division and got to the B10 title game. But, a 9 - 4 record, while pretty good for that team, isn't enough to survive the public humiliation the school just went through. His public stance didn't help, but he was probably toast the minute that went public.

So the (very) early rankings are out and surprise, surprise, Florida State and Alabama are 1 and 2. The interesting thing is that they play each other the opening weekend of the 2017 season.
