TULSA - With the decision made so quickly after the season to dismiss TU head basketball coach Doug Wojcik, it's quite obvious the decision was made way before the heartbreaker versus Marshall.
Reasons given for dismissal? Money. Ticket sales. Apathy with fan base.
All valid in this day and age of big time college athletics.
But please excuse me if I stop anyone who claims college sports is about students first, athletics second.
So Tulsa is looking for someone who can take them to the promised land, the NCAA Tournament.
That brings us to the entries for my exclusive coaching derby.
