Perhaps swayed by the less than brilliant clock management on display in the final two minutes of the Emerald Bowl, Randy Shannon cuts OC Patrick Nix loose.
“I enjoyed it here. I appreciated Randy giving me the opportunity,” Nix said. “I’d like to have gone with something more wide-open and more no-huddle. He and I had a philosophical difference on that.”
More no-huddle. What’s that line about a man looks into the abyss and there’s nothing staring back at him? Shannon contemplated a Nix-directed offense with even less structure, shuddered a bit and chose to move on.
