  • By Bernard Cullen Ritchen

For over thirty years, Bob Jenkins had been defined by wins and losses in college basketball. As a highly successful Division I head basketball coach, he had reached the pinnacle of his profession. Then one day, without warning, he finds himself being dismissed from coaching by the athletic director of the university. He is angry and confused about how to navigate this turn of events and what to do with the rest of his life.
