The Hawk doesn’t dig family time
Current Colorado Buffalo head man and former Willamette Bearcat Head Coach (1993-1997), Dan Hawkins had a sweet rant the other day. Apparently a parent slipped the coach an anonymous letter bitching about their kid not having enough free time during the spring/summer. I guess the Hawk wants his kids to be working out and getting ready to play Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Florida State instead of loading up the wagon and headed out for the yearly camping trip.
I don’t really blame the Hawk for going all D.Green during that news conference. Really, high school sports are already being ruined by medaling and overbearing parents. It’s only a matter of time before there are parents writing letters to the Colorado AD complaining how their kid’s feelings are hurt because the Hawk replaced their son with a female kicker.
Here’s the audio:
The Hawk wants you to go play I.M.'s
Deadspin: Dan Hawkins REALLY wants you to practice more
