    No, it is a great day to be a Dot...Coach (and I use that word lightly) Lemley was not a leader, I played for him 4 seasons. I know what a leader is having served 8 years in the military, Bob Lemley was not a leader, he was not a good coach, he needed to retire after his 3-peat back in the early 2000's. Kids would not play for him simply because of who he was and how he was. It was sad to see better athletes in the stands on friday nights than on the field. Good riddance Bobby, you needed put back on the shelf years ago.
