Myers' great coaching

Veteran basketball coach Tom Myers' recent illness caused me to reflect on my time as his assistant.

In the 1980-81 basketball season at Highlands High School, it was my privilege, honor and blessing to be Tom's assistant. That turned out to be the greatest year of my life due to the tremendous support from the administration, parents, school board and student body. We had a fantastic season because of the great players, but most of all, because of the great coaching job by Tom Myers.

To me, Tom is a combination of Dean Smith, Bob Knight, Roy Williams, Tom Izzo and Rick Pitino.
