Rick Majerus passed away over the weekend; he was 64.
Majerus is what some call a “lifer” in coaching.
The guy was all about hoops.
All week-long I will throw up some excerpts from ‘My Life on a Napkin’ by Rick Majerus.
I challenge them. I’ll say, “You tell me the day I’m not the most organized, enthusiastic, energetic guy on the floor. If I’m not that guy, then that will be the day we end practice early and the next day I’ll quit.” If you can ever say, ‘Coach wasn’t organized today…He wasn’t into it today, ‘ then I have a problem. But I challenge anybody to find a Utah player who could ever say that.”
