    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

    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!

    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!
