Nashville Coaching Legend Recovering From Car Crash Gets Lead Story at

While I was sad to learn earlier this week that former Lipscomb basketball coach Don Meyer had suffered severe injuries after his car veered off the road on the way to a retreat with his team at Northern State in South Dakota, I was glad to see Meyer get the lead story on's college basketball page. Andy Katz pays tribute to the Nashville coaching legend:

Still, despite the horrific state he was in, with every minute waiting for help the potential difference between life and death, Meyer was still coaching.

No one expected anything less from the consummate "coach's coach," as he is termed by countless disciples. Meyer, entering his 37th season as a head coach, has 891 career wins and is just 11 wins shy of the all-time leader, former Texas Tech and Indiana head coach Bob Knight, who retired last February with 902 wins.
