We have our first coaching change of the season.

On Wednesday, news broke that Ronnie Arrow would be retiring, effective immediately, as the head coach at South Alabama. Assistant Jeff Price, who has won over 300 games as a head coach at Lynn University, Georgia Southern and West Virginia Wesleyan, is expected to take over.

This was Arrow’s second stint at South Alabama. He was at the school from 1985-1993 and returned in 2007 after leading Texas A&M-CC to their first NCAA tournament.

The timing of this decision is curious. The Jaguars were 5-5 on the season and actually had some talent on their roster. They beat Florida State on the first night of the season.
