Good for Coach Sparks

He is a good coach from my alma mater that turned down bigger programs and bigger money for years because he liked where he was and what he was doing.

I remember him saying this, "I hate the term, 'Student-Athlete.' You are here to study, therefore you're a student. Period. Yes, an athletic student, but playing sports is a privilege. It's not primarily why you're here."
