Listen to what Steve Kragthorpe did today.
He held a press conference two days after being fired. He answered the questions asked him by the local press. He had nary a bad word for anybody, not the mainstream press, not the online press, not his bosses. Not even for the vociferous naysayers, those who took Kragthorpe’s inabilities as a coach as a reason to attack the man and his family personally.
Then he met with the team that is no longer his.
That, Cardinal fans, is a stand up guy.
I’m glad he’s no longer U of L’s coach. He didn’t get the job done. And didn’t show that he would be able to, even if given another year or two.
But I certainly hope that, under similar circumstances of adversity, I can handle the situation with the grace that Steve Kragthorpe displayed this afternoon.
I wish him Godspeed.
