It definitely hurts! In the past Schools waited longer before they fired.

Generally schools waited longer to see how well a guy was doing before swooping in to hire.

The money and investment is so high the fans so impatient that most CAN’T wait.

Perhaps it has always been this way. After the mistake of killing Sarks program in the 70s, While we were standing pat with Leon Fuller in the 80s I watched Wyoming go through Akers 1 year Texas steal, Bill Lewis fired in 3, Pat Dye 1year Auburn steal, Al Kincaid 5 years to Arkansas, Dennis Erickson 1 year off to Wazzu for 2 then Miami, Paul Roach 4 years 35-15 2 WAC titles 3 Bowl losses, retired to AD. Hires his OC Tiller.

While we were blessed to have Sonny in the 90s and early 2000s the Pokes had Tiller for 6 but they chased him off for going 39-30-1 to Purdue for 12 years went 126 -92 before B1G 10 expansion, then Dana Dimel 3 years 22-13 jumped to Houston, Vic Koennig fired in 3, Joe Glenn 6 years Fired.

Perhaps the stakes were less before but fans always want more? Some programs (CState) have had more patience McCartney was 20-36-1 his first 5 years with bLuffs in year 3 -10 Two Bowl losses in years 4-5. They were trending UP went 7-4 in year 6 no Bowl 8-4 year 7 with a bowl loss. Would Bill have got to year 6 today.

Also the Coach who walked on water went 99-55-3 Two outright Big 8 Championships and 1 shared with you guessed it Nebraska but was 3-6 in Bowls in 13 years.

Mike Bobo went 28-35 and 3 Bowl losses early but trending Down. McCartney 20-36-1 with 2 Bowl losses but trending Up.
