No Hope for Purdue
One day after the Boilermakers 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. He ended the school's three-year bowl drought last season and brought Purdue its first bowl title since 2007 by winning the Little Caesars Bowl in Detroit. He was given a two-year contract extension in December that runs through the 2016 season.
