Here is a memo to you, Lisa Love.
You should be delivering more than the $22,000 bonus check that Herb Sendek is due for winning Pac-10 Coach of the Year.
He should get a long-term contract extension.
What Sendek has built in just four years at ASU is simply amazing. Finishing second in the Pac-10 despite losing two NBA players is even more astounding.
There is nobody that I want leading the men’s basketball program other than Sendek. He is a class act and just is a genuinely great person.
He is developing not only a winning product on the floor, but he is developing strong young men off of it as well.
I’d also like to take this moment to thank North Carolina State for not wanting to keep Sendek around, even though he was winning there as well.
I wonder how Wolfpack Nation feels today?
While Sendek took a team that nobody expected to do anything and led them to a second-place finish in conference, NC State finished second-to-last in the ACC.
Do you know how many times they have made the NCAA Tournament since Sendek was run out of town?
So, thanks again.
