Closing the Book on Eddie Sutton at USF


Someday we'll all look back at the University of San Francisco's Eddie Sutton era - all six wins and 13 losses of it - with nostalgic fondness, but today the only word is that it's officially over. The Dons hired former Kansas player Rex Walters, and it sounds like Eddie wasn't exactly an integral part of the search process:

"Rex Walters? I thought perhaps they'd want someone from the West Coast to be able to recruit," Sutton said over the phone. "I gave them suggestions to help the basketball program ... evidently he made a big impression."

Personally, I was hoping they'd continue to go the ex-Razorback coach route and hire Nolan Richardson. That nitpick aside, here's wishing Eddie a happy and peaceful retirement.
