i coached youth basketball for several years
first coaching one of my sons then later just
coaching because i liked doing it

it seems coaching like a lot of jobs people do
if they really enjoy doing what they do
the players know the parents know the fans know
well i think everyone knows

my sons played multiple spots growing up
basketball baseball soccer football swimming
if you ask them now years later
who was your favorite coach
which did you enjoy playing for

it will probably be that coach who loved doing what
he or she does and really truly cares about their

so thinking of this this last week as i watched the
mack brown saga unfold
i thought what a great man and coach and person to
have had your son play for

its going to be sad to see him go
he shows so much class in everything he does
im sure those parents who met him at the recruiting
visits felt good that their sons would be under his care
for the next 4 years

ive watched as have you over these years as these things
unfold that it all doesnt go well
there becomes complete dislike between the coach and the
school that just scars and ruins the memories of the past
good things that were done

at texas mack brown resurrected a program that had
been destroyed and built it back up to the heights that
the school wanted and expected

things the last few years have started to unwind some
it was time for him to resign
dont stay too long and ruin that legacy that respect we
all have for you

the next year would have been awful if you had stayed
and not had a good season
even i wouldnt be able to stand to watch the wolfs go after
you when they smell blood

its a business like a large corporation that has to show profits if
its ceo is going to remain
there havent been profits recently

but matt brown what a classy act you are
wish my sons could have had you as a coach sometime in their
athletic career

so move on to the next stage of your career
you have all our respect and admiration

tough shoes to fill for that next ceo
