Whipple is most certainly on the hot seat. If he doesn’t coach the team to at least 6 wins he is done. The school knows what he has for talent and for a winnable schedule. They like him a lot and they are rooting for him but if he doesn’t win 6 games with this squad....he’s done. That’s a hot seat if I ever saw one. He’s a good guy and can recruit but is not a good in game coach. As far as I am concerned he can cost the team 2-3 wins a year with his questionable calls from the sideline.
