WOTS: C-A coach now plans to stay for 2012-13 season

The most recent news regarding the future of Flint Carman-Ainsworth head basketball coach Bob Root is reversal from the word on the street last week. Apparently Root, who is also the athletic director at C-A, alerted members of his program staff that he ultimately decided not to resign, choosing to stay on another season.

The word last week that he had decided to resign caught many off guard, coming in the first week of the school year.

This situation is an excellent example of why athletic directors shouldn’t be their own bosses (noting that former head coach Rory Mattar, a highly successful coach, resigned when he became a principal in the district). This situation sounds more like a hostage crisis than a coach uncertain about his future in the program.
