    He was turning the corner in Logan. Not much pressure there if he wanted to go back. They did just beat BYU.

    Yes Henry, I read the article from the Orgonian, as well. It was apparent Gary didn't feel some of his assistants were all-in, which caused consternation to the point he simply walked away before he said, or did, something foolish.

    I hope he can find something to occupy the passion still burning within him, and find the balance we all need in our lives.

    Gary never should of left the head coaching job at Wisconsin. He would of had a cushy job for a long time there. I never understood the move to Oregon State. That was just a really bad life decision. Good luck to Gary in his journey.

    Gary has been pushing himself pretty hard it would seem. The Oregonian released some text messages he sent them over the course of this season that are very unsettling. He probably wanted to get out before his health deteriorated any further. It was a wise move and I hope he finds his way.
