Phil Martelli should be fired

That is, if the accusations made by a former St. Joseph’s player named Todd O’Brien are true.

Which, I believe, they are.

Seriously, read this. By now, I am no longer shocked or even disappointed by the near-universal dickheadedness of big-time college coaches. But I remain disgusted. O’Brien was a marginal St. Joeseph’s player who had the audacity of wanting to pursue of course of study elsewhere. When he asked for approval to transfer, Martelli denied it. Why? Because he was pissed.

Pathetic.
