Webster's defines coach as one who teaches or trains. What exactly did basketball coach Rollie Massimino think he was teaching while at UNLV—greed, misrepresentation and treachery (Divorce, Vegas-style, Oct. 24)? A salary of more than $500,000 is ludicrous in itself, but for it to be padded with booster money is a sad commentary on the state of athletics in our colleges.

Only in America do you have to pay someone $1.8 million for the right to fire that person.
