Raleigh Sports talkshow host, Adam Gold has begun his shift on fate of Herb Sendek. Gold, who has repeatedly stood by Sendek in the past had the following to say today on his blog.
Two weeks ago, someone called the program and asked me if I thought Herb Sendek was in any danger of losing his job this season. I answered him quickly, “no chance.” But, I did go on to say, “unless this season becomes a disaster.”
Guess what folks, this season has spiraled down the toilet and, at the risk of sounding a little too much like failed democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, the performance of this team quite possibly has put Sendek’s job status in jeopardy.
There is a huge difference between disappointment – where we were a few weeks ago – and disaster – where we are today. It was disappointing to lose at Washington, or at Miami and Virginia Tech, or at home to Duke, or at the Smith Center. But, it’s utterly unacceptable to have lost to St. John’s by twenty, and at home to both Florida State and Virginia. That’s a disaster.
