Former Texas Southern football coach Darrell Asberry has plenty to choose from. There’s his old job at Shaw that’s now vacant. Four-year coach Robert Massey was relieved of duties today. It just takes some gall to fire a man whose son is still recovering from a broken neck. AND right here at Christmas time. The regular season ended Nov. 7; why didn’t they do it right after? Of course, Asberry still had a job then. But our sources tell us Massey has a year left on his contract.
“We thank coach Massey for his effort and dedication to the Bears football program and to our student-athletes over the last fous years,” Athletics Director Al Carter said. He’s lying; no he doesn’t.
Or Asberry can head to Fayetteville State, which fired three-year coach Lawrence Kershaw two weeks ago. That’s what happens when you can’t beat your rival, Winston-Salem State. The Broncos have lost to the Rams in the regular-season finale, with the division title on the line, for the past two seasons. And the irony is Kershaw had just been honored with a North Carolina Award, the highest award a state employee can receive. But did that matter? No-o-o-o-o-o-o, because he couldn’t beat WSSU!
Or Asberry can head over to Elizabeth City State. Of course, the Vikings have no money, but they still want to win.
Or he can ride across town and talk to St. Augustine's. The Falcons also don't have any money. They want to win, too.
Hmm, something tells us Waverly Tillar will be popping up somewhere.
