Larry Porter called the University of Memphis “the perfect place, the perfect job” when he was hired by the school in December 2009.
But it has not turned out to be the perfect job that he had envisioned. The team has struggled during Porter’s helm.
Now, the winds have been swirling in recent days and Porter has had to see this coming. After this weekend’s game, he is expected to be fired by his alma mater in the coming days.
The Tigers travel to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to face the Southern Miss Golden Eagles on Saturday. With the loss, Memphis will suffer it’s third-straight season with 10 or more losses with two of those seasons under Porter.
The Tigers are currently 2-9 on the season. Yet, Southern Miss has a 19-4 mark against the Tigers in Hattiesburg.
Porter was 2-2 against the Golden Eagles as a player. He played for the Tigers in the mid-1990’s.
