An open letter to Providence College President Rev. Brian J. Shanley and Athletic Director Bob Driscoll:
When the search for the next menâ€™s basketball coach commences, do not make the same mistake you did the last time. Many people were leery when Keno Davis was given the keys to the schoolâ€™s primary means of visibility and exposure. Not just because Davis had all of one year of coaching experience under his belt, but also for the simple reason that he was far from the top choice to replace Tim Welsh.
PAWTUCKET â€” During the final stretch of the inaugural Irish 5K on Saturday morning, Brendan â€śBuzzâ€ť Doyle watched as two runners passed him the last few yards.
That was something that may have bothered him when he was a standout runner at St. Raphael Academy, located up the street from the Pawtucket race. It certainly wouldnâ€™t have sat well when he continued to excel with his running career at Iona College and later on the local road-racing circuit.
Not this time, however.
PROVIDENCE â€” Tom â€śSaarâ€ť Sorrentine admits that it was by design that he honed in on West Warwick. After all, St. Raphael Academy had already played Coventry twice, which presented more than enough of a sample for the coach to devise an adequate game plan should his Saints cross paths with the Knotty Oakers for a third time.
