What you are really pointing out is that there was little to nothing in place to hold Huskie Athletics and the coaches accountable for performance prior to the board of trustees being established.

This talk of not having a succession plan in place is complete nonsense. Coaches are hired to be fired. Do you think Alabama has a succession plan in case Nick Saban jumps ship? Is the plan to pass on the head coaching duties to the offensive coordinator in Manitoba when Brian Dobie retires? Of course not! The only succession plan that should be in place in the event that a coach is fired or quits is that they will hold an open competition to recruit a new head coach and allow that coach to hire their own staff.
The College of Kinesiology screwed this up when they placed restrictions on the new hire and did not include anyone from the board of trustees on the selection committee. This was not their area of expertise, so they should have let those who know what it's like to recruit employees and build a team take the lead. Because of what they did, they have created more uproar and controversy and have alienated several supporters.
I actually feel bad for Scott. He is in a really tough situation if he doesn't win now and stay at the top of the Canada West. I think your last sentence is correct - he has to hire new coaches from outside of the program who will shake this team up and bring immediate improvement, especially on defence.
