Reid was treated poorly by BYU And for the record, it didn't work out so well
for Chris Burgess at Duke (and after). Burgess could have developed at BYU and
perhaps played his way to the NBA (See Jimmer), but he rode the bench and ended
up at Utah where he never really did much. Bradley left for the NBA after his
mission, made some money but will never enjoy the lifetime rewards enjoyed by
Ainge and other BYU superstars. Reid was bit by self-interests of players and
their egos, by alums who had too much influence, and a bumbling, micromanaging
Administration. He deserves his due from BYU
@go big blueDid you make that same assertion about norm chow?
Reid might be the nicest guy in the world but he could not get it done in Cedar.
You would have to question any AD that gives him the next go around.
I love Coach Reid. Yes he was a great coach, yes he was unjustly fired, and yes
he should get another coaching gig asap.Good luck Coach!
Maybe he is going on a church mission. Really it is none of our buisness and
wish him well. wink short retirement.
I wish him peace and happiness in his retirement.
I think Reid and his sons gave it theyr'e all to BYU. I liked his personality
and passion. Say what you want but he was a winner. A good man and Good Coach.
I hope he still coaches has a lot to offer this business. I liked Frank Arnold
a lot and Rose has had good success. I do not remember fully all BYU legends
living in California. I was a casual fan. For years I listened to 1160 am and
Paul James. It was 50000 watts and it was good basketball. I rated him 3rd on
BYUS all time list.
I've always been a fan of Coach Reid! He and Dave Rose are both "class
acts". They represent what is great about college hoops! I wish you the
very best, Coach! May you have a "very short" retirement!Dale
