    Always a class act. He gave the most amusing press conferences in the business. I'm a graduate of two schools that have long standing rivalries with Miami but I still love Charlie Coles.

    Probably for the best, given his medical troubles.

    While an undergrad, I remember him coming to UD and amiably talking trash with the first rows of the student section on multiple occasions. He dished it out pretty well.

    He sure did. I he loved coming to the Convo, or at least he seemed to.

    Long ago, we got him to bow to us a few times with some cheering.

    One of the students photoshopped an O-Zone turtleneck onto a picture of him a couple years back, blew it up, printed it, and tried to get Charlie to sign it. He did so with a laugh and a smile.

    Rest in peace, Charlie.

    Behind a little bit of madness was a lot of genius. And a good man to boot.

    I, and many UC alumni and fans, greatly respect Charlie. Sorry for the loss, we will miss having him around.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    A really good read.

    Wally Szczerbiak reflects on the death of longtime Miami (Ohio) coach Charlie Coles.
