Steve Donahue – Boston College
If there’s any college coach who is more in danger of being fired than Donahue, I’d like to meet them. After spending 10 seasons with Cornell, including 3 straight NCAA Tournament trips, being ranked #17 in the Coaches Poll, and a Sweet Sixteen appearance, Donahue took the head coach position at Boston College, a job made vacant by the firing of Al Skinner. Donahue started off well for a first-season coach taking over a team that had finished below .500 the season before, and had the Eagles in the NIT.
Since that first season, it’s been all downhill for Donahue’s Eagles, who are 49-59 since he took over. This season could be hideous for the Eagles, who have already started off 4-11. ACC play can’t seem to even save them now, as they’d need a miracle to do well in one of the best ACC lineups in a while, as the conference already has 10 ten-win teams. I don’t see Donahue being around for another season at Boston College, but I do think he’d be able to land on his feet at a smaller school.
