Did anyone take the time to look at the other coaches that are being said on the Hot Seat.

Oliver Purnell | DePaul

History: 40-80 in 4th season at DePaul, 0 NCAA tourney appearances

This season: 10-16

Why he is on the hot seat: Purnell is known for always getting out of a job before he feels any heat, not getting fired at any of his previous stops. But he's making a lot of money, and not showing any improvement. The Blue Demons haven't won more than 12 games in a season under Purnell, finishing in last place every season.

Will he survive it? No. It's not easy to win at DePaul, but Purnell hasn't given the program any reason to be optimistic. There have been decent individual pieces, but the team loses multiple seniors and doesn't bring in any recruits who will turn it around. He's making nearly two million dollars a year, which is too much for a coach that isn't winning.

This sounds just like the Oliver that pulled up in the middle of the night with the cupboard empty. Yes he won some games but, he quit on Clemson before he ever left. This is why Brownell has had a bad start at Clemson. He had nothing in the cupboard that resembles talent. IMO though, Brownell will restock with his type players, and prove all the nay Sayers completely wrong.
