None of this should be a part of any discussion. The only thing that should be part of the discussion is results: Team won/loss record, player academic performance and player behavior outside of the classroom.
That was the point I was addressing. It's been argued multiple times in this thread that Murrell still has her job because she's a lesbian, but there's absolutely no evidence to support that.freja wrote:mvem...I just read the link you posted re: Murrell's coming out!
Bottom line is the whole issue of sexual discrimination, sexual preferences, team dynamics, who is dating whom, ad nauseum, has absolutely nothing to do with her coaching ability and everything to do with societal implications of being gay in the (sports) world.
I appreciate her and the world's issues around being gay. I don't think it has any bearing on her abilities as a coach which now seem to be taking a giant step into a very large chasm. I don't think her coaching is good. I don't think her assistants are good. I don't think her recruiting is good. Not encouraged.
Lesbianism should not be any reason to fire or KEEP a coach who is riding a horse over a cliff.
Her contract is up after this season (I don't think it's been extended again since 2009) and, barring an unexpected turnaround, she'll almost certainly be fired at that point.
