Happy Friday to ya, you guys. Welcome to the beginning of the toughest part of the year for we bloggers at Kentucky Sports Radio. News stories are few and far between. For writers like myself who post at night, there are few topics available by the time it’s my turn to write. However, I like you guys. Not love, but like. I know you want the inside scoop on things, so I go above and beyond to get that for you. Today, I bring you the latest news on notable coaching changes.
Richard Pitino from Florida International to Minnesota
Richard, son of Rick and JoAnne (as far as we know), is your new head man at Minnesota. He takes over what was left behind when Tubby Smith moved on to…
Tubby Smith from Minnesota to Texas Tech
I didn’t like this move for Tubby, but believe it or not he didn’t ask my opinion. I would’ve liked to see him retire. It seems like to me Texas Tech is a place where coaching careers go to die. (See: Pat Knight, Bob Knight, Billy Gillespie) Those careers needed to die, Tubby’s does not. How Donna Smith allowed Tubby to move her to Lubbock, Texas is beyond me.
Rod Stickland from Kentucky to DePaul
My friends and I used to love watching Rod in late game timeout huddles. During the huddle, he said nothing. When the huddle would break we loved to watch him tell the players “don’t foul.” I hope whoever takes his place reads this, because this person must take over the “don’t foul” reminders.
Brandon Stockton to Glasgow Middle School
I recently broke this news in “Where are they now”, but it’s worth mentioning again. Brandon will take over the 7th and 8th grade team. I anxiously await a future “started from the bottom now we here” tweet from Brandon when he secures a coaching job at a higher level.
My friend Phil to Shelby Park Little League “Wild Cow Cubs”
This may seem insignificant to you but like I said earlier, news is sparse. We are reporting all coaching changes. I’m happy to report the Cubs, sponsored by Wild Cow vegetarian restaurant, are on a 2 game winning streak and got a big win over the Braves Tuesday night despite one of the more ridiculous base running blunders I’ve ever witnessed. It was so silly, you guys. Important to remember these kids are only 9-12 years old. Some of them probably still pee in the bed.
Nathaniel Miller named “player/coach” of #TheOC Men’s City League team
Due to an amazing attendance spreadsheet Nate made to figure out what players would need to miss certain games and his efficiency in emailing post game stats, Nate was named a player/coach this week. This means he is not only a player, but a coach as well.
That’s all for now, be sure to tweet me any other coaching changes you are made aware of this week so we can keep this up to date.
