    Coach K: Bully?

    Bob Knight coming out in him, maybe.

    I agree. It must be a slow time for college bb news.

    Had a friend many years ago that went to see a dUKe game at Cameron. Said he never heard so many F Bombs being dropped by Coach K.

    K can come across so nice in interviews, but I know he's a jerk and a bad potty mouth to the officials working his games.

    My guess is that most elite coaches have at least a little of that mentality to them.
    As do most industry leaders as well I suspect. As horrible as bullying is with kids in school it seems to be an aspect of what turns into "strong leadership" in industry. Not saying all leaders have to use this style but I imagine it's a common approach.

    I always assumed that this was probably close to the truth.

    A disciple of Bob Knight who already has an air of invincibility around him... no way that he can't be a bully.
