    Talk about throwing a career away. Doyle Wolverton, girls basketball coach at Leake Academy (Miss.), resigned after he bit one of his players during a timeout.
    Wolverton is second in the nation all-time in career victories and has won a boatload of state championships in the Mississippi private school ranks. He's been coaching since 1975 and has an all-time record of 1,245-181.


    And, from one of the Jackson TV stations, here's the police incident report:

    The difference is that Hayes assaulted an OPPOSING player.

    Also, Hayes didn't bite Baumann.

    I think everyone who has played competitive sports has been chewed out a time or two, but this girl apparently got chewed up.

    Despite the police report, Hattiesburg native Marty Stamper said he didn’t notice anything atypical when he attended the game.

    “Usually if something goes on, you’ll have parents or somebody carrying on and hollering, Stamper said. “There was none of that, and I was sitting straight across from the Leake Academy bench.”

    Well, then, it must not have happened. Thanks, Marty. Everyone's lying!

    The weird part about that is Marty was for years the sports editor of the Neshoba Democrat, the weekly paper that covers Leake Academy most closely. Why he wasn't identified as such is a strange omission.

    Since he coaches at Mississippi private schools, he must like the taste of vanilla.
