Summer basketball coaches are generally viewed as sketchy characaters because too many of them are involved in the sport for the wrong reasons, and more of them than you probably realize are on the take from agents or boosters or college assistants. Or, in some cases, all three. Which is not to suggest all summer coaches are bad people. Because they're not. It's just that enough of them are sketchy enough to make observers paint with a broad brush, and the "Most Wanted Fugitives" list in The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis will do nothing to help that perception because a prominent summer coach is listed in the top 20.

Click this link and you'll find a mugshot of Memphis Select coach William Rhodes.

He's reportedly wanted for aggravated assault, for a violation of bail conditions and for a violation of a protection order. "If you have information regarding [this individual]," the site says, "please contact the Shelby County Sheriff's Office Fugitive Bureau." Now guess who has information regarding this individual? Me! According to, Rhodes is at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church every Thursday night from 6 to 8 working out prospects who are "interested in being skillfull and sound" players. So I'd suggest starting there, Shelby County Sheriff's Office. You can thank me later.

hoops coach / fugitive

When I saw 'hoops coach' and 'fugitive' in the title, I thought Herr Parrish had written another of his never-ending attack pieces on Bruce Pearl. The world knows by now how much Gary hates The Jew, as he calls Bruce.
