FIU Fires Cristobal!

Mario Cristobal fired by Florida International, according to reports

Florida International has "let go" of coach Mario Cristobal, according to FootballScoop.com and confirmed by Pete Thamel. This is the most surprising termination of 2012, besides Appalachian State letting go of Jerry Moore, of course. Despite a down year in 2012, Cristobal has been one of the most-sought coaches in the country over the past couple years, with multiple power programs up north going after him last year.

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

If it is about w and L this just proves that coaches are not given any slack

Wonder if it's got anything to do with him being mentioned for other positions. Firing the coach who put you on the map makes 0 sense. Has to be more to this story

Probably LOTS! Wow, what BAD timing for a firing to me, in the midst of the most important recruiting time of the year AND moving up to CUSA to boot!

Go get 'em Coaches!

could he have pulled a Bobby Petrino at FIU and the AD found out about it, and fired him because of misconduct.
