The Fridge's uncertain future

OC James Franklin was expected to replace the Fridge in 2011. But the way things are going, Franklin may take over next season, maybe sooner.

The Post wrote a story about the Fridge's increasingly tenuous grip on a coaching position he's held since 2000.

This is probably the low-point of his coaching career. But one thing on his side is his contract. He's owed about $4.5 million for the next two years. And considering the well-documented financial decline the athletic department is currently enduring, it's hard to imagine Yow buying the Fridge out.

Yow said she won't "evaluate the status of the program" until after the season.
