Prentis Mercer, the father of 6-foot-7 junior forward Tariiq Jones, said he is upset about the treatment of his son after Alexander allegedly told Jones to “suck his (genitalia)” during a Nov. 6 practice.

“He told my son to suck his (genitalia), grabbed his balls and stared at him,’’ said Mercer.

This plus a terrible record…wonder where he will be going next.

I’m gonna guess a career high major assistant. Still not a bad gig haha


#4

UDM was a terribly coached team. I watched two games and they were both atrocious


#5

Did he act like that during his time at UM?

Wow… the wheels fell off his tenure as a head coach quickly. That will be his last D-1 “head” coaching gig.


#6

It does sound like a tough story to recover from. Wish him well and hope he is extended the additional chances that all of us need in life!


#7

Good luck to BA, he seemed to do a good job at UM! I will say I did not like the hire of Kam’s father…I think it sends the wrong message in your first year!

Agree. I know it’s not officially out of conformance, but I am not happy when football does it, either. Basically, you are finding a way to pay a player. . . then having the parent looking over your shoulder. I’m sure Bacari saw it as his initial leg up and, worth noting, someone at UD must have approved. . .
