As teams reach the midpoint of the season, some programs are already realizing that its just not working out.
Such is the case with Georgia Southern and head coach Tyson Summers according to Brett McMurphy.

It has been a long fall for the Eagles, who won nine games in 2014 and 2015 under Willie Fritz. Summers went 5-7 last season.
Based on his initial contract, looks like Tyson Summers’ buyout at GS is between $600k – $900k, prorated and subject to offset by next job.

A number of SEC assistants could jump ship for this job due to its geographic location. One name could be Georgia running backs coach Dell McGee, who was the interim head coach after Fritz left.
