Purdue coach Danny Hope says he’s not worried about the statement his boss, athletics director Morgan Burke, released regarding the Boilermakers football program.
However, I think there’s a couple reasons he really should worry.
It’s a bad sign when: The AD is bothering to make a “vote of confidence” type statement.
It’s an even worse sign when: The AD never actually gets around to saying he has confidence in the coaching staff.
It’s worser than worse when: The AD wasn’t even bothering to respond to a given question. He e-mailed his statement to the media.
And the worst part could be when: The local paper’s write-up on the story includes your buyout numbers.
