    if these colleges are making millions on sporting events why is the tuition so high. where does ALL that money go?

    School politics for sure because that WOMAN has a bug up her butt. I haven’t heard one nice thing about her since she came on board, not from any teacher or student. In fact I’ve heard nothing but negative comments from those individuals. Something is really wrong with this picture!

    From what I’ve heard, he was not let go, but that there were in fact “philosophical differences” between him and the school’s administration. It’s a shame, as he’s done a tremendous job an his record speaks for itself. Best of luck to him wherever he ends up coaching.

    I agree Mike S. when a coach has been coaching for 32 years and decudes to walk away, but says he will look for another job he was let go.

    Sounds like he was let go, more or less. Shame… won’t forget seeing at school; alot of focus was on the girls team because Amber Jacobs was in my graduating class.
