New interim AD fired coordinator without consulting coach?

For those of you following the saga unfolding at Western Carolina, this revelation probably isn't shocking; but for the rest of universe, this might sound odd.

Two weeks ago, Western Carolina University dismissed their athletic director and brought a former senior associate AD out of retirement to serve as the interim AD. That's not the shocking part.

So, what was one of the first things the new interim AD did? He dismissed the defensive coordinator without discussing it with the head football coach.

Take a second and think about that.

Head coach Dennis Wagner is in his fourth season at the helm of the Catamounts. They currently are 1-8 this season and are a combined 8-35 under Wagner.
