As Webster puts it, "What kind of example are we setting for young black kids when so few of us are getting to the top positions in our profession?" A rotten one, obviously.
Last week, Dick Crum lost his job at Kent State, and Mike Archer quit one step ahead of the posse at LSU. Purdue's Fred Akers will probably be gone as soon as the season is completed. Now is the time for these and other schools to give more than lip service to the principles espoused by Martin Luther King. Let's hope that some qualified black coaches get a crack at those vacancies and that the indignation directed at the people of Arizona is channeled into action that would truly honor King's memory.
