THANK YOU DAD FOR ... OUCH! STABBING PAIN! IN BACK!
There's no such thing as a sure thing in life. Especially if it includes deals made in smoke-filled rooms that end up not being made at all.
WEST POINT, N.Y. -- Newly named Army football coach Stan Brock, who was recommended for the job by the retiring Bobby Ross, has decided not to retain Ross' son Kevin on staff.
"I decided it was important for the program to go in a different direction," Brock said in a statement released Thursday. "I continue to work toward building the best staff possible to lead our cadet-athletes and hope to be in position to announce the makeup of the entire staff shortly."
Kevin Ross said he was shocked at the decision and that his father also was upset.
One would imagine.
The decision was made last Saturday -- the day Brock accepted the job.
"My dad was under the assumption that I would be staying," Kevin Ross told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown.
Remember that time in high school when your dad told you to ask that girl out and she said "no"? Yeah, this must be like that times 100.
Kevin Ross said he was unsure of his future plans.
Again, one would imagine. But C&F is guessing dad's advice won't mean much.
