If you're Dan Radakovich, where do you go from here?
So far, Clemson's second-year athletic director has been a show-me kind of guy - of the inclination to move, and move decisively, in what he considers to be the best interest of the Tigers' big-picture athletic program.
Itoro Coleman, former Lady Tigers' hoops star, out as women's basketball coach.
Robbie Tenenbaum, who righted the ship after inheriting a mess, not retained after failing to take a resources-loaded rowing program to the NCAAs for three straight years.
Lawrence Johnson, multi-year track & field regional coach of the year and one of the top women's hurdles coaches in the world, shown the door after running afoul of NCAA rules.
So, now, what's he to do with Hall of Fame baseball coach Jack Leggett?
The fans are restless.
Much of the goodwill and benefit-of-the-doubt Clemson's veteran coach mustered during the Tigers' late-season drive to the NCAA tournament and milestone 1,300th win was squandered with a simply abysmal showing in the NCAA Nashville Regional.
The score of the first game and the opponent in the second hardly matter. This has been a long time coming, more the culmination of a trend than an aberration.
The Tigers played baseball badly. They failed to hit when it mattered, they flubbed routine defensive plays, and they delivered a string of disastrous pivotal-point pitches.
They were outplayed, out-hustled and, if you'll pardon my grammar, out-attituded.
They looked, from the get-go to the bitter end, like a team looking for a place to fall.
Who's fault is that? What should be done about it?
That is what Radakovich has to decide: does Leggett still have what it takes to pilot the Clemson baseball program out of these doldrums and into a championship future?
Leggett is passionate about the game and his players. He's shown flexibility in the way he coaches his teams, fitting style and philosophy to the talent and attributes he has to work with.
He's a winner: 1,300 games worth. He's developed players and young coaches at the absolute highest level.
He has also overseen what would be unanimously considered to be an unacceptable slide in Clemson's status as a national baseball power.
So does he make a change, dismissing Leggett and looking elsewhere for leadership? Or does he give the Tigers' veteran captain a chance to fix what's broken?
Asked after the season-ending loss to Xavier on Saturday if he's fully confident he'll be back coaching the Tigers next year, Leggett repeated the query and then answered, "I'd like to think that's a ridiculous question."
Unfortunately, it isn't.
I wouldn't want to be in Radakovich's place on this one.
But if I was, I'd prefer to see Leggett go out on a high note, like his predecessor, on his own terms.
I'd bite down hard, grit my teeth, and give him that chance. Because - a bitterly disappointing season and a dismal weekend performance acknowledged - I think he's earned it.
