Mark Snyder – You’re F%^&ing Out

I have the mind of a champion, and unlike Mark Snyder... a job.

Just when it seemed like maybe we would go a day where someone didn’t get canned while the world collectively holds its breath for the news from South Bend or Lawrence about two rotund coaches clinging to a life-preserver, the poo has hit the fan again… this time in Huntington, WV, according to ESPN’s Joe Schad.

Mark Snyder, head coach of the Thundering Herd, and former Marshall player, is apparently tossed out after posting a 6-6 record. His overall record at Marshall was 22-37 and the Herd have failed to be a difference maker in CUSA in his tenure, despite this season’s 4-4 record in conference. Marshall’s 6-6 2009 record was the best under Snyder, but apparently not good enough for the powers that be.

Snyder now joins Louisville’s Steve Kragthrope, UNLV’s Mike Sanford, Memphis’ Tommy West, Akron’s JD Brookhart, Western Kentucky’s David Elson, and San Jose State’s Dick Tomey as the first, but clearly not the last, victims of the 2009 axe man.

Mark Snyder… you’re fucking out.
