DuBose takes over at...what was the name again?

Boy, the fall from the top of the college football heap can be a brutal one.

In 1999, as head coach of Alabama, Mike DuBose was the SEC coach of the year and led the Crimson Tide to the Orange Bowl.

But a year later, following a sexual harassment complaint, an NCAA investigation and (the real killer) a 3-8 season, he was forced out.

After staying away from football in 2001, he coached at two high schools in Alabama over the next three seasons before being brought on last year at Division III Millsaps College, a tiny Methodist school in Jackson, Mississippi, as defensive coordinator.

When Millsaps's current coach was hired on at the University of Mississippi as linebackers coach, DuBose was promoted to head coach. Sort of interesting because Millsaps finished 2-7 last year and had the worst total defense in its league.

All DuBose needs to be a successful coach is Shaun Alexander and Chris Samuels.
