In case you missed it, Steve Yanda of the Marquette Tribune penned a wonderful retrospective on Al McGuire this week entitled, 'Walking away a winner'. Steve spoke with Bo Ellis, Jerome Whitehead, Bernard Toone and many others to shed light on Coach Al and his decision to retire back in 1977. Check this out:
The night before McGuire's retirement announcement, Jerome Whitehead had a dream.
In the dream, McGuire announced that he would not leave the team, but Whitehead, then a junior center, knew better.
"I knew it was the opposite," Whitehead said. "I knew it was his way of saying, 'I'm leaving.' "
Nice job, Steve. Read it all right here.
