Need a Coach–Coach Johnny Darden is Available

Yet another article about Coach Darden in the Knoxville News Sentinel here:  http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2009/apr/15/darden-says-hes-not-done-yet/.

A well-deserved award to the best coach I ever had the privilege of knowing personally.  As stated in a previous post, he helped tremendously in reinforcing the lessons that my parents taught me.  It was not just about basketball, of course. 

Perserverance, patience, passion, purpose and a whole lot of other words that start with letters other than “p”. 

Thanks again, Coach Darden.  I’m praying that another group of young men will have the honor of calling you “Coach.”
