The Mailman Karl Malone is back. Not back to the NBA, but back to his alma mater and mine, Louisiana Tech University. Not only is he back as an assistant coach for the basketball team he once took to the Sweet 16, but he’s also promising to clean up the program:
“The days at Louisiana Tech University of baggy pants, cell phones in the arena, hats turned to the side â€” those are over.”
“I think discipline has a lot to do with getting back to where we were,” said Malone, who led Tech to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament in 1985 before falling to Houston’s Phi Slamma Jamma. “That’s is the way we are going to strive to do it. We’re going to give a kid something that’s grounded.”
I’ll be pulling for Tech. They have had a rough go of it for too many seasons. So I’m hoping that Malone and the new head coach can get her done. How ’bout them Dawgs!
