PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Was Mike Johnston the worst hire in the history of Pittsburgh sports?
That’s the question the men of the “The Fan Morning Show” were asking themselves after the Penguins’ 6-2 thrashing of the Ducks last night.
This morning, as the hosts lauded the work that new head coach Mike Sullivan has done since taking over for Johnston mid-December, Colin Dunlap took it a step further, wondering if Sullivan’s work has made Johnston look like an all-time dud by comparison.
The guys ran through some of the worst hires in the history of Pittsburgh sports – and in the history of Pittsburgh in general – and opened the floor up to listeners via Twitter, asking them to Tweet their choices as well.
The response was so big that
#pghbadhires was trending on Twitter.
Based on the names received from listeners and the guys, we present to you top five worst hires in Pittsburgh history:
5 – Nate Harper
4 – Todd Graham
3 – John Russell
2 – Mike Haywood
1 – Steely McBeam
