Shocked to see the release that Deb Patterson was "relieved of her duties" at @kstatewbbWow. I'm shocked too.She had some trouble recruiting top players, especially recently, but she can COACH. One of the best coaches in the country IMO.

Mechelle Voepel wrote a pretty damning article in the Kansas City paper as she discusses here:http://sports.espn.go.com/ncw/...tory?id=2609272Patterson has had some high profile transfers out of her program as Voepel mentions. Many thought Patterson and KSU were toast after that public expose in 2006. Patterson actually got a contract extension in 2006 and another in 2009. But she never bounced back completely, thus the record over the past 5 years. I always suspected that bad publicity in 2006 was karma for KSU having a good old time at the United Spirit Arena after KSU won in LBK in 2005 and carried on with all kinds of loud celebration and dancing on the court while the Tech team was trying to sing the school song after the game. Funny, I think Wecker was introduced at halftime of the game Tech played in Manhattan this season when KSU honored the 10 year anniversary of the 2003-04 team's accomplishments.

Until I read the Voepel (sp?) article, I had not realized that not only had their been many player transfers but many changes of assistant coaches as well.My theory about coaching staffs IN ANY SPORT is that when you start seeing churn at the assistant coaching level it says a lot of things about the Head Coach, which are usually mostly negative. Behind the scenes, Patterson may have been pretty insufferable which can catch up to you over time....Bob Knight's antics at Indiana were exposed by a disgruntled assistant coach, who turned over the tape to CNN which showed him choking a player that turned out to be a tipping point in how he was viewed at that school (wonder whatever happened to him, btw, oh wait)....Texas Monthly did a great piece about 5 months or so ago about the situation at the University of Texas and their fired track coach, Bev Kearney....you read it and it is hard to gin up much sympathy for Kearney and her lawsuit....in coaching, there is a pretty fine line between between being a borderline tyrant who squeezes the most out of their team's collective talent without completely destroying the psyches of all those in their sphere of influence or someone who becomes so unbearable that people decide that can't take the abuse anymore....when your coaches leave without even having another job in hand (as the ESPN article suggests) then perhaps it suggests how poisonous the atmosphere had become at that place.
