I have a friend in the program.  He says all the coaches already hate his guts.  Ron also ran off a ton of players.

Pretty sure Ron has scored more than Maryland.

Excellent article from former DUD and STUD John Feinstein on Ron.
Quote
After graduating from Appalachian, Prince took the LSAT and thought about applying to law school. But Cullen offered him the chance to come back to Dodge City as a volunteer assistant, and he decided to give it a try.

That began a journey during which he worked for 12 teams over more than 25 years. His previous experience as a head coach was the almost impossible job of succeeding LHC Bill Snyder at Kansas State in 2006. The Wildcats beat fourth-ranked Texas in that first season and went 7-6, going to the Texas Bowl. Two 5-7 seasons later, Prince was fired.

“I like to tell people that the only thing better than being hired at a school 12 miles from where you grew up is being fired at that school,” he said. “The support I got from the community was great.” He paused. “And I do still have the best first three years on the job record in the history of the school. I’ve always been completely at peace with what happened there, for good and for bad.”

I have no idea what he meant by "the only thing better than being hired at a school 12 miles from where you grew up is being fired at that school."  Is he saying he was glad he was fired?  Is this some obvious idiom I'm missing?

I'm guessing he meant that if you're going to get fired from a job, it should be when you have supportive people around.

I thought so too, but is that really better than being hired in your hometown?  Just an odd turn of phrase.

If it was said in the context that it's an inevitability that a coach will be fired (hell, Snyder was), it makes a bit of sense.  Words could've been reordered to reflect that coaching 12 miles from home's greatest benefit comes into play when being fired, even greater than when being hired.

That may be some insight into an aspect the profession. Taking it for granted that it's inevitable you'll be fired.

He's still bold and daring.  Howard takes a 7-6 lead.  Ron calls for the onside kick but it's recovered by Youngstown state. 

It's Prince vs Pelini!!

The reality is, no one in the community was supportive of Ron. Amazing how time and utter self delusion can cloud one’s memory.

I'm going to guess his JC and DCCC people weren't the same people as the disgruntled K-State fans, and western Kansas husbands of lonely housewives.
