Fast firings: Jerry Tarkanian

Fast firings
Jul. 20, 2006. 01:00 AM

The New York Islanders fired GM Neil Smith on Tuesday after six weeks on the job. Other quick-trigger moves:

MIKE PRICE

Fired as football coach at University of Alabama in 2003 before coaching a single game. News reports claimed he had paid for private dances at a topless bar in Florida.

BRYAN TROTTIER

Fired by New York Rangers GM Glen Sather in January 2003, 54 games into the season. Rangers were league's highest-paid team but were last in the Atlantic Division.

JERRY TARKANIAN

The long-time college coach was fired as coach of the San Antonio Spurs in 1992 after a 9-11 start. "I'm 62 years old," Tarkanian said. "I probably ought to be out watering the flowers."

I had repressed all those memories of the Jerry Tarkanian era and now they're back. Most of those memories center around a central image of Tarkanian sitting on the bench with a bewildered look on his face which can be summarized by the statement "crap, those guys are just as good as my guys, now what do I do?"

i think he wanted to trade every player we had for any player with a bullet wound or a parole officer.
