It was the most restorative thing I had done in a long time.

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee wants to be a big time basketball program, but the school has been mired in mediocrity for years. If you are a big-time program you don't put up with that kind of result and you pull the trigger and give another coach a chance. It's that time for UWM.
