Subject: Reggie

In today’s day and age a black man isn’t going to get fired unless they have a terrible record. It would be a PR shitstorm. Especially with how highly regarded he is by local “celebrities” like Howard Simon and John Murphy

As a person of color I find this extremely offensive and borderline racist. Reggie got the job on his merits, not his skin color. African American coaches are fired all the time, and often don’t get the same second chances that white coaches get.

This shouldn’t be a race issue. Shame on you for trying to make it on

It shouldn’t be but it is! If you don’t think that he gets a longer leash because he’s the first black head coach in school history and the political climate today you are kidding yourself!

Turn off Fox News and give me a break.

In three years he’s 35-20 in conference. That’s why he wasn’t fired. That’s one of the best three year stretches in recent memory. He recruited the freshmen of the year. He’s won the conference coach of the year. All in less then three years. And this year they have a real chance to win the maac tournament. Saying the only reason he’s still coach shows your true colors...

Maybe your dislike of him is because he’s African American

Griffin Mike is right. Reggie had a pretty good record at UB. He developed players and turned a doormat program into a contender. He was fired. To suggest that he won’t be fired because of his race is despicable, and racist.

This post is just plain disgusting. Reggie had the team in first place for most of the year. What is the expectation? That somehow he has the team in better than first place? Everyone agrees that Baron left this team in total shambles and left at the worst possible time for recruiting leaving reggie in an unprecedented tough position. He has done a great job since he's been here and the future will be even better after the young players get more experience. You have to ask why is that Baron gets a free pass while reggie gets all the criticism? Baron had the highest salary ever paid by Canisius, also the most money for assistants and what did he do? Baron even had less conference tournament wins than Parotta. If you want to blame someone for today's problems then it is Baron. Baron was handed a great team by Parotta and he did nothing. Baron handed Reggie a terrible situation and Reggie had us in first place. Plus Reggie operates with high ethical standards and is a local guy. I am satisfied knowing we will always be competitive with Reggie and have our share of success as long as he is here.

Baron handed a great team by Parotta? That team won 5 games and graduated Washington their best player.I don't like Bona like the rest of you, but the anti Baron feeling is definitely because he's a Bona guy. Obviously it helped he brought one of the greatest Griffs in Billy with him, but we have to stop the Baron hate.If the Griffs win the title, Reggie will get all the love he needs.

Reggie has been over 500 in conference. They were a year ahead of schedule last year, and it hasn't been consistent this year.

Reggie has struggled with star players each year.

He's in year 3 of a five-year contract and the school probably isn't going to pay a buyout. He'll be allowed to serve his term, and an amazing recruiting class and/or NCAA/NIT bid would likely lead to an extension.

Fans have heckled Reggie more than Baron but nearly as much as Parrotta.

None of this has anything to do with race.
