Gottfried Done in Tuscaloosa

Last week Dan posted the bizarre story of former Alabama All-American, Ron Steele, deciding to end his career by sitting out the remainder of the season. At first it was reported that plantar fasciitis was his reason for leaving the team. However, Steele later stated that there were other factors at play.

Now as reported by Tuscalossa News, Alabama Head Coach Mark Gottfried will step aside. Details are sure to surface soon. But one thing is for sure this has the potential to become develop into a sports soap opera.

In my opinion Gottfried, who spent 11 seasons as Head Coach, was a good recruiter but Bama always seemed to underacheive. It’s always bad to fire a coach during the season in college basketball. But obviously this guy did something that has not been released to the public yet.

Assistant coach, Phillip Pearson, will finish out the season as interim head coach.
