Thank God! I was sick and tired of seeing his angry face always yelling and screaming, and throwing chairs. He acted like a big, OLD, fat kid! Go home, get a rocking chair, take chill pill, and RELAX! Other people can now relax too.

Copperlady, if you read stories about him, you will find there is so much more than what the media tells. Do you know that he actually paid for one of his players to finish college after his eligibility was up. The man wrote a check for that boy's final year of tuition, books, fees, everything. To listen to the athletes tell it, he was not just a coach ,but a father to many of them. Yes, he had his run-ins with some of them, but you need to read some books on what he did for these guys and how he prepared them for life.

Like many others, I thought someday he would simply spontaneous combust. Seriously, he was the first coach or player I remember to act like a complete jerk, the poster boy for poor sportsmanship. Hope he has a nice retirement.

Yeah well that poster boy is the best coach in college basketball history. 902 wins. Yeah i'm sure you could have done better. The man was a genious on the court.
