No surprise here and considering he was an under 500 coach, no playoff appearances, not able to draw fans it really does not matter.

However, his salary, as reported in court was paid monthly, instead of most coaches who are paid during the seasons month, so he should have shown up and worked for the money until he decided to quit. Unless he was not being paid.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
