    Holes riddle ex-Springstead basketball coach's resume

    One of the worst "hit pieces" I have ever seen concerning a high school coach who by the way was nominated to the Tennessee HOF 2 years ago. This story creation wasn't documented and most of it based on false information and fabrication. It took me no time to destroy the credibility of this story and you will see the Editors Note 1 year after the story was published.

    Not really. No one cares.

    Oh I would say a great many care including many sports journalists across the South who have criticized the author(s).

    I'm guessing OP is an assistant coach?

    At the most. Most likely JV or volunteer.

    Wrong on both counts. I am a free lance journalist and part time high school blogger who followed the coach in Tennessee. I despise liars in sports journalism. I despise those with a bias even more. This was a damn high school basketball coach who served inner city schools for 32 years. It wasn't Bob Knight or Nick Saban.
