It was evident that Mississippi State officials would have to make a serious and tough decisionon the future of head coach Sylvester Croom.
According to coach Croom he decided to take a drastic step and resign, after five seasons, 21 victories and 38 defeats.
Reliable sources say Croom was told to make changes to his staff, in particular involving offensive coordinator Woody McCorvey and refused.
The coach, who signed a contract extension last year that paid him one-point-seven million dollars a year, resigned under pressure.
His Bulldogs lacked emotion, no enthusiasm or desire to fight for a win in Friday's 45 to nothingblow out loss to arch rival Ole Miss. Recruiting is crucial and yesterday's embarrassing loss to the
The Rebels basically helped seal coach Croom's fate and that of his coaching staff.
How can you not have your troops ready for an instate rivalry, one that can save a coaches job with a big win.
It didn't happen. It only happened one season in the five years Croom coached in Starkville.That's 4 losing seasons and one winning campaign, that coming in 2007 when Mississippi Stateposted 8 wins and 5 losses and won the Liberty Bowl over Central Florida.
Mississippi State athletic director Greg Byrne met with the media this afternoon in Starkville.
These are some names that have been mentioned as possible candidatesto replace coach Croom at Mississippi State.
*East Carolina head coach Skip Holtz
*TCU head coach Gary Patterson
*Oklahoma defensive coordinator Brent Venables
*Former Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden.
