it is not all his fault but i never see him get in a player's face when they screw up every time a player screws up or they lose a game he tries to smooth things over instead of telling it like it is he is with a team with alot of strong personalities sometimes they need someone to kick them in the butt he doesn't have a strong personality he always trying to philosophize why the lost or why a player didn't play well i want a coach to give praise were praise is due and let a player know when he is screwing up or he is not playing up to his potential'''
