He did lose to Furman, not sure about Pacific. He was fired the season he was hired.
He won a conference championship one year, and he inherited years of very unsuccessful teams. I was disappointed in his won/loss record though. I think he went 0-10 his first year.
Paul Dietzel should be listed among the best. He had won a national championship at LSU before coming to Columbia.
Richard Bell was not a bad coach at all. He was fired because he refused to fire his staff.
If Hillinski wants to stay here, he at least deserves an opportunity this year for some playing time. He was thrown into the Alabama and Georgia game last year at the beginning of the year and did a credible job as a starter.
