Deadspin to Geno Auriemma : Man Up!

Written by Juan Cena on Tuesday, April 06 2010 and posted in SWRT

If everything goes as expected, Geno Auriemma and the U-Conn Huskies will clinch their second NCAA women's basketball tournament in a row, complete with a second unbeaten season. What will Auriemma do for an encore? Deadspin's Drew Magary agrees with a reader that it's time for him to jump to coaching men's basketball. In one of the few profanity-less parts of the article, Magary says

...There is NOTHING left for Geno Auriemma to do at the women's level of basketball. He's already the best women's coach of all time (you can say Pat Summit is, except that I don't care enough to argue). What would five more undefeated seasons do for his legacy?


It's hard not to argue with him. There's really nothing Auriemma hasn't done in women's college basketball. The only places to go from here sports-wise would be the WNBA (which on some level could be seen as a step down), or to jump over to coach players with y-chromosomes. Odds are though that he'll stick with coaching the U-Conn women.
