This guy might be good, but I think Coach Kruger needs to put all his eggs in the DeAndre Daniels basket. If Coach ends up not being able to land Daniels, Mashour will still be available.

"Kruger's strong values, something few have challenged in his six-year tenure as coach, haven't seemed to rub off on his players."


Are you suggesting that coach Kruger has not and does not positively impacted any of his players? Do mistakes equate to a lack of moral growth? I would usually wait for you to answer these questions, but I have a feeling your answer will not embrace this discussion board. Thus, I will continue.

After the story hit the press that Coach Kruger was going to be the next men's basketball coach at UNLV, I found myself at the Thomas & Mac in agreement with the all of the boos that President Harter received for her apparent horrible hire. Since that day, Coach Kruger has done nothing, but prove all of us haters wrong. He has proven to be the epitome of what a college coach should be, and he has given UNLV alum a basketball program worth cheering for. The last six years have shown that Coach Kruger is a man of integrity (something you agree with me on) who is not willing to sacrifice morals for wins. He has proven to be a man who is willing to put his job and future on the line in order to instill upright values into his student-athletes. Coach Kruger has shown that he understands when to give grace and when to give direction, instruction, and discipline. He has set a high moral standard for others to follow, and he has won quit a bit of games doing it.
Everyday fans, like myself, have been inspired; perhaps, you have even been inspired by Coach Kruger at one time or another. Yet, for some reason, you declare that he has failed to inspire or positively impact any of the dozens of young men that come through his program at UNLV.

I am not a journalist and do not claim to understand the profession, but if I may, I would like to give you a suggestion. Either remove this statement from your article, or talk with each and every student-athlete that has come through Coach Kruger's program at UNLV to see if your bold statement holds any water at all.
