So I really don't think it is a cause for celebration when someone who has been doing their job well for 35 years has to be cut loose.
Then all coaches should have a decent PR
person? Pat's success came from her hard work, outstanding standards for herself and her team.
One thing I have not seen in this thread is Joan's response to the situation. I don't remember her projected retirement date. Is she still on staff?
