    one reporter call Chaney the goon of perfection
    a few days ago in a tight game Temple coach
    ordered his player to hit with a hard foul on st.Joseph's
    John Bryant and the young man landed and broke his arm
    Chaney send the kid in and was foul out less then 4 mins.
    in the game hitting with elbows and hard pushing
    did he send the wrong message ???
    Chaney is now suspended for the rest of the season but
    many crying foul and want him fired @ 73 and a good coach
    a record of 721 wins and 294 loses in 33 years coaching

    Chaney reaction at first was hey i'm a mean ornery son of a B.......
    letter learning of the kids broken arm and out for the season
    Chaney change his feelings and offer a deep apology saying
    he wish his player Ingram had said no he can't do it !
    but player respect chaney and his mental moves that proven
    him to be a winner

    Chaney crime is letting his own team down by this action
    what's your take on this ???
    How do you see this playing out and will he be fired ???
    is it time for John Chaney to :horse: out the game as coach???

    If he does retire (or get retired) because of this, what a terrible note to go out with. Chaney was a great coach, but most ppl would remember him for this incident.

    he needs to get out of North Philly more often

    it's time to retire.
    these cats put too much emphasis in a game.
    they all need to grow up.

    coaches do what he did all the time...grammar school and up...they are blowing this situation up too much...but what do you expect...coaching is a thankless job...no matter how much good u do, one mistake can end your career...especially if you are a black coach...smh

    one love

    Did he tell the kid to commit a hard foul or just a foul? Fouling is part of the game. If he only told the kid to go in and use his fouls to stop the clock, then that's not his fault. If he told the kid to commit a hard foul to send a message or something of that nature, then he should be fired and he should be held directly responsible. It all depends on what he told the kid.


    Nevermind, I just re-read the first post and if he did say to commit a hard foul on a certain player, then he should be dealt with. That's not a good thing to teach players. He's basically telling them, since you can't stop this player with your limited talent, play dirty.

    we all know John Chaney is a very good coach and had 33 wonderful years
    even if he did send a player in to foul hard nobody knew this kid would fall
    twisted and break his arm , it's true coachies do this all the time in games
    it was really a bad choice i think his remanding suspended season is fair
    but fire the man on a hard foul that happens in nearly every game played
    cross the board is too much and yet the media / ppl blowing it way pass the
    reason .

    And i have to say he did send the wrong message to go after players with hard fouls
    but no one knew it would play out this way he have sent his deepest apologies to
    TEMPLE his players and the saint Joseph team & player Bryant for this display.

    It's sad if he is fired he will be remembered as the goon and bad judgement
    a dirty coach when his record say otherwise 721 career wins and TEMPLE
    coach Chaney is of age to retire he still a basketball legend .
