Mark Gottfried, the basketball coach of Alabama has put in his papers and resigned from his position. In fact this fellow is leaving right in the middle of the season but you can’t blame him for leaving at least. He has been criticized for the way his team has been performing and also the fact that a star player has abdicated.
Mr Gottfried will be replaced by his assistant coach for the time being. And don’t forget guys, his next game is coming Thursday with or at Arkansas.
I am sure there must have been lots of drama on the campus, loud noise and banged up doors. According to my source at the offices, Mark resigned during the meeting with the Athletic director Mal Moore. If you have any inside details, do leave a shout out below.
But both sides are being diplomatic about it by thanking each other for the time spent during this endeavor.
“It has been a wonderful decade for me and my family, and I love the University of Alabama, but I feel that it is in the best interests of everyone involved,” Gottfried said in a statement released by the university.
Crimson Tide had a very pathetic year so now hopeully with the new captain on board this ship, maybe they will do better. Do you guys have any hopes? Auburn folks stay outta here. (Not really…LOL).
Mark Gottfried Affair
I heard about it and it could be real or it could be just the regular juicy campus lore. According to the rumor mills, Mark had an affair with a student. I am sure other readers and perhaps UA students can give more insight into this below.
