Thank you for sharing this story...I cried, was angry and maybe a bit at peace by the end. I hope parents and schools take the message here and help all students. RIP Maddy...your storm has subsided. Joe Gargiul

A man of deep passion and intensity, George Karl earned his bad boy reputation while playing at the University of North Carolina, a rap that continued through the five years he spent with the San Antonio Spurs - and long after he stopped playing. Karl's beery nights, fistfights, and barking followed him into a 35-year coaching career. In a game defined by big stakes and bigger egos, rabid fans and an unforgiving media, Karl was hired and fired a dozen times.

Kind of a predictable macho jock story...everytime George doesn't like something or someone he wants to punch something or someone....gets old after awhile.
