Everybody’s situation is different. If Tim Duncan stayed in school another four years it didn’t matter what Tim Duncan did his senior season. I think there are some guys that are NBA guys… I think Ronnie is definitely a guy who could play in the NBA. It doesn’t matter if he stays or whether he...
There are three reasons. The school has been good to me, and we’re in a bind now. I miss working with the kids in a game I still love. And, as the athletic director, it’s a good move because we have nine coaching positions to fill with two teaching openings. With this, we won’t have...
