Michael King: Players insulted

Players insulted

As I understand from your reporting, Debbie Yow calls a meeting with Wolfpack football players and tells them she is firing their coach, the coach who recruited them, and replacing him with someone who can recruit players of Alabama’s talent level. Tom O’Brien was fired because he did not recruit good enough players? In other words, none of the current players on the Wolfpack squad are good enough for Debbie Yow. If they were, O’Brien would still be coaching.

It will be interesting to see how many of these players recognize this insult! I can tell you this, if I was talked down to by someone who got their job mainly because her sister was so loved by Pack faithful, I would be thinking of transferring to a school that wanted me.
