Remember the show "Coach"? You should. It was like Shakespeare came back to life so he could write about scholastic sports in the woods of modern-day Minnesota. Anyway, if you do remember it, you'll likely recall that coach Hayden Fox had an ongoing feud with the coach of Minnesota State's woman's basketball team. They'd play pranks on one another and battle for funding but either way comedic hijinks were sure to follow.
Something similar but not quite as hilarious is going on at Ball State. Ronny Thompson, son of John and brother of John III, recently resigned as their basketball coach but not before he requested that the school fire women's volleyball coach Randy Litchfield. The school's president directed the athletic director to follow through on Thompson's request. Why did he want the other coach fired? Because Litchfield turned Thompson and his staff in for watching practices in violation of NCAA rules. It's not clear if he was also dating a dimwitted Nordic assistant coach who was close to Thompson but it doesn't seem likely.
Upon arriving in Muncie, Thompson proceeded to clean house, firing everyone from the basketball secretary to trainers, and telling players not to trust certain staffers because according to sources, they were white.
Thompson claims that he resigned because of a hostile work environment that was created when notes with racial slurs were slipped under his door. That would be a better explanation than the slew of NCAA violations and the 9-22 record he compiled in his one season on the Ball State sidelines.
