Per Gold and Black, Purdue’s Rivals site, the university has parted ways with Darrell Hazell after three and a half seasons. He was 9-33 and saw his defense yield 99 points over two losses to Iowa and Maryland, but that was likely just the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Our Purdue writer, babaoreally, will be back in the next day or so with in-depth thoughts, but in the meantime he’s offered this:
Good riddance I guess.
After a successful 2012 at Kent State in which the Golden Flashes went 11-3 (8-0) but lost to Northern Illinois in a wild MAC Championship and Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl, Purdue snapped up Hazell and stuck with him through three seasons in which he failed to win more than one Big Ten game a year, beating only Illinois (twice) and an Armstrong-less Nebraska club.
RIP, Darrell Hazell. Your hat-bending will be missed.
