Dan Lebowitz, NU Executive Director of Sport in Society, was on HuffPost Live yesterday, to discuss the contract non-renewal of Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, whose immense popularity is matched only by the success of his track record.
The Grizzlies’ management cited “philosophical differences” as their reason for declining to keep Coach Hollins on. Lebowitz joins the panel to discuss whether or not black coaches have a harder time than their white counterparts.
Lebowitz’s last post on Aspire centered around the decision of NBA player Jason Collins to come out as a gay athlete. Where do you stand on sports in society, in general—and education in particular? We invite you to share your thoughts, below.
