Frank Haith Has To Go

I'm sorry. While Frank Haith is a DEFINITE recruiting plus, as an in-game coach he is pure GARBAGE. No matter what kind of talent he assembles, this man will NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER get the 'Canes into the Final Four, let alone a National Championship. Anyone who's watched Miami melt down in numerous games this guy has coached can see that. I've never in my life seen a guy who seems so unbelievably helpless and deer in the headlights struck when his team starts blowing it. Instead of calling timely timeouts to calm his team down with a quick bit of wisdom and strategy, he just sits there watching the meltdown happen. And when the 'Canes melt down, they REALLY meltdown. They go from a fantabulous team, to a team that makes you want to puke inside of a heartbeat. This game against NC was just the latest example. They were playing awesomely, and then it all started to melt down. Instead of playing as a team, they began to stand around as the player with the ball ran isos. NO MOVEMENT WITHOUT THE BALL WAS SEEN. Did Haith call a time out and get his players to start moving without the ball, setting screens and opening up players for good offensive opportunities? Nope, just sat on his heels with a [email protected]@ look on his face. Oh, and the fact he didn't call a timeout IMMEDIATELY following NC's last shot before the half (with 4.7 seconds left on the clock as the ball went through the hoop), and instead allowed the clock to simply tick off, is the mark of a totally clueless moron. I say Haith needs to go. We need a head coach that can NOT ONLY recruit, but can actually coach his team during a game.
