I don't know who Barreau is and I had never heard of CNU before this thread. No disrespect, I'm sorry you lost your coach who you all obviously liked and respected. But. He's coached at 7 schools in 12/13 years? Apparently got canned this time because of issues with the HC? Sounds like a guy who needs to learn his role. If he's not the director, he should defer. Period. I tell my staff all the time that we have to be on the same page, and if they can't do that, I'll replace them. Simple as that.
I hope the kid lands on his feet, and you guys can sign your petitions or whatever, but ultimately, you need to let it go. They'll bring in a new coach. Either run for that guy or dont, but don't act like it's some great tragedy. Good coaches get fired all the time. Just because you like a guy doesn't mean he's impeccable or above reproach. And maybe the HC sucks, but he's still the HC, and if you cross him, this is what happens.
