Should it for the good of the game? 100% yes, but this is a business, not just a game, and for that reason the people that run WIS would never risk firing long time customers.
If they do it right, I don't think they'd alienate too many customers. I think most paying customers would recognize it was well past time, and be OK with the fact if they were fired at an A+ baseline school if they didn't make the NT for 17 consecutive seasons. Not trying to be facetious, that's a real example where a coach was able to hang around that long just by making the PIT, and that illustrates how difficult it is to get fired. Where they run a risk of alienating people is if they dramatically overcompensate and start firing people who didn't get a real opportunity to turn a program around, or if you start firing people at A+ programs for having 2 bad seasons, or something like that. But if you can't make the NT even once in 10+ seasons at an A+ school, and you get fired, could anyone really complain?
