John Chaney

must be fired.

The Temple coach's actions....sending a never used player into the game to purposely rough up players of the opposition....amount to thuggary and are anathema to what sport is about.

Ohio State fired Woody Hayes in 1978 for hitting an opposing player who was in full pads and thus not at risk of getting hurt. Hayes' action was a few seconds of insanity and not close to as egregious as Chaney's premeditated actions. But I don't recall there being any debate of the rights and wrongs of firing Hayes...Ohio State just did it. Hayes was a tremendous human being on and off the field. He was, and is, my greatest sports hero but even I had no doubt he had to be fired.

This guy has to be fired if college basketball stands for anything. It doesn't mean he can't come back and rehabilitate himself via another coaching job in the future but college basketball must make a statement and fire John Chaney.
