Ralph Willard, a dismal failure as head basketball coach at Pitt. A coach who could recruit, but ignored character while at Pitt.
Well, Willard is leaving his position as head coach of Holy Cross — his alma mater — to resume being Rick Pitino’s manservant lackey assistant.
I only made it to Fitzgerald for two games in the Willard era. Both ended the same way. Pitt blew huge leads and lost when the opposing team shot a gamewinner at the buzzer. The UConn game that sealed his fate and against Rutgers a year or two before.
I wish him nothing but the worst.
