Miami Redhawks honors former basketball coach Charlie Coles

Charlie Coles

When Charlie Coles announced his retirement as head basketball coach at Miami University last March, most media members wondered if he could actually stay away from Millett Hall, home of the RedHawks.

Well, he has.

The 71-year-old Coles, who still resides in Oxford, Ohio, made his first appearance at a RedHawks game yesterday afternoon.

MiamiĀ  honored their long-time coach before the final regular-season home game against Kent State.

Coles retired after 16 seasons on the Miami bench with 263 wins. He is a 1965 graduate of the university.

Before settling in at Miami, Coles, who was always popular with media and fans of opposing Mid-American Conference schools, coached at Central Michigan for six years where he compiled a record of 355-308. While there, he coached Dan Majerle, who went to have an All-Star NBA career.

His 218 wins in MAC games are the most in conference history.

In a recent interview, Coles said that he spends his retirement helping coach his granddaughter Jazz’s sixth-grade AAU basketball team.

The bowl season continues tonight on ESPN, as the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl has a 7:30 pm start at Ford Field in Detroit.

With a $1.5 million payout, Western Kentucky (7-5) plays local favorite, Central Michigan (6-6).

Three years ago, the Hilltoppers were 0-12 and in 2011, they finished at 7-5 but did receive a bowl invitation.

In 2012, despite a 2-4 stretch run, Western Kentucky found out that its 7-5 record was good enough this time around, but they had to wait until the final hours and minutes on December 2 that they’d be playing in the Motor City.

The Hilltoppers are making their first bowl appearance as an FBS member.

Central Michigan is making its fifth bowl appearance in the last seven years and first since 2009.

The Hilltoppers are led on offense by Antonio Andrews with 1,609 rushing yards and have one of the top tight ends in the country in Jack Doyle who is 6’6, 255 pounds. He has caught 47 balls for 530 yards.

Western Kentucky has the best defense in the Sun Belt Conference, allowing 342.8 ypg and 136.6 on the ground.

The Chippewas of Central Michigan started the season at 2-5 in the Mid-American Conference but was able to get bowl eligible by winning its final three games against Eastern Michigan, Miami (Ohio) and Massachusetts.

CMU has a very porous defense allowing 441.2 yards per game and 197 on the ground.

But the Chippewas have a deep and talented receiving corps with Titus Davis, Andrew Flory, Courtney Williams and Cody Wilson. At running back, they have Zurlon Tipton with 1,391 yards and 19 TD’s, QB Ryan Radcliff who threw for 20 TD’s and 2,905 yards.

South Florida has hired Willie Taggart to take over its struggling football program.

The 36-year-old has established himself as one of the nation’s top young prospects by turning around a Western Kentucky University football program that had a history of losing.

Taggart led the Hilltoppers to a 7-5 record in 2012 and will make their first postseason appearance since joining the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) when they take on Central Michigan in the Little Caesars Bowl.

Hilltoppers defensive coordinator Lance Guidry will lead the team in the bowl.

The Saturday press conference brought Taggart home to the Tampa Bay area where he grew up before going to play and later coach at Western Kentucky, which is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky on the Tennessee border.

Taggart replaces Skip Holtz, who was fired following the worst season in the Bulls 16-year history at 3-9, 1-6 in the Big East good for 8th place.
