So, were not concerned about those Coaches who build student athlete's who are more likely to graduate and pursue some other professional career other than basketball. Apparently, Coach Neil has what some programs are lacking character and honesty. He is a good person who cares about his kids; not the coaches who revoke student scholarships for not posting more wins than losses. Give him credit for not selling his soul to dishonest recruiting violations and staying the course. He just work for an impatient Administration that rather win at any cost. Hopefully Coach Neil will land squarely on his feet and look back at this experience as a learning one. Thanks.

ucoleman couldn't have said it better. I am a friend and team-mate of Neil from high school and went to part of college with him. The bottom line is that if I were a parent of a young man who has talent, I would rather hand him over to Neil Dougherty to be developed as a young man and basketball player than just about any other coach in the country.
