The word on the street is that Saginaw High head basketball coach Lou Dawkins will announce his resignation on Monday at a press conference. I know there’s a lot of speculation out there, but I don’t think it’s unfair. Typically a high school coach, even one as great as Dawkins, wouldn’t hold a presser to announce that he’s staying — he’d just stay.
Either way, Dawkins is a tremendous coach and has done an amazing job at Saginaw High. If college basketball is his next step, I wish him the best. I think Dawkins, if he didn’t have it already, earned the respect of everyone in Michigan’s basketball community after the tragic death of his son Dorian. Dawkins persevered during what had to be the toughest trial of his life.
