I have been a big Rick Majerus fan for a long time. Unforttunately, he has never
taken very good care of his body. As a local high school and college coach in
the 90's, I had a chance to talk basketball with Rick quite a bit.
He's definitely a brilliant guy. I'm afraid his career is over though.
He had his best team coming back this year, returning 4 starters from a team
that won 24 games. This is also the last year of his contract at St. Louis. I
don't see St. Louis or anyone else handing a contract to a 65 year old
coach with chronic health issues. I wish him the best, but the timing of this is
Well, well now. Who would ever have thunk it!I wonder why that
doesn't surprise anyone.
Leave of absence? Where have we heard of this before from Rick. I hope he's
okay. I really do. And I am grateful for what he gave Utah. Still, all the show
up for work when you want to stuff really hamstrings a university.
