Coachpocalypse 2012

You're fired. All of you (you know who you are).

Tom O'Brien? You're fired:
North Carolina State coach Tom O'Brien has been fired after a disappointing 7-5 season, the school announced Sunday.

O'Brien will not coach in the Wolfpack's upcoming bowl game. Offensive coordinator Dana Bible has been named interim head coach, and all assistants have been retained through at least the bowl.
Frank Spaziani? You're fired:
Frank Spaziani will not return as Boston College coach, the school announced Sunday.

The Eagles finished 2-10 in 2012, concluding with a 27-10 loss to NC State on Saturday, and won just six games the past two seasons. His teams got progressively worse each season under his watch.
Danny Hope? You're fired:
A strong finish for Purdue wasn't enough to save Danny Hope's job. One day after Purdue retained the Old Oaken Bucket and became bowl-eligible for the second straight season, athletic director Morgan Burke announced that Hope had been fired.

Hope went 22-27 in four mostly injury-ravaged seasons.
And Jon Embree? Oh, you're definitely fired:
After just two seasons, Colorado is parting ways with head coach Jon Embree.

Embree, who signed a five-year contract in Dec. 2010, went just 4-21 in two seasons -- including a 1-11 campaign this year with the Buffaloes. The lone win came Sept. 22 against Washington State.

Colorado closed out the season with eight straight losses.
Of those, only O'Brien's firing could be considered anything other than totally unsurprising, but all are worthy of some words and stuff. Unfortunately I'll be mostly unavailable for about the next 24 hours; I'll make up for it by throwing up a bunch of content on Tuesday with some slightly more detailed analysis of those and any other Coachpocalypse 2012-related events that occur in the interim.
