Either way, I fully expect there to be litigation in the very near future. This could get ugly.

Don't worry. Some PWI will scoop him up, and pay very well for his services.

True. My employer might be one of them...

I got a feeling St. Aug. trying to save money, but they could go about it much differently.

I certainly hope not. That would be an easy ageism lawsuit.

I heard someone mention after the accident coupled with the length of time for his recovery to assume duties as AD on that small campus was over the top.  Pup is probably 75+ and time to move on down the road. NOT.   It is a sad ending for a great coach.  When it is time to go, leave and not wait to be chased away spoiling your numerous and hard to surpass records.  Building with his name emblazoned is on that campus already.    Hey pup,  ease on down the road with dignity.

The Greensboro News and Record has never written an article on St Augustine University, rarely an article on the CIAA. But today they publish a 4 column half page article on the firing of Coach Williams.
