You’re Fired Friday (Volume 1)

Posted by Latif Thomas

If you’ve been following me over the years, you’ve no doubt noticed my slow evolution into the kinder and gentler Coach Thomas of today.

But that doesn’t mean I’m afraid to call some people out from time to time.

Oh no. Not at all.

Over the course of this year I’ve noticed some things. Some ridiculous things. And today I’m laying out my first round of new rules for track and field. Unfortunately for some, that means I have to fire some people.

Who? Why?

Watch this video to find out if you’re on my list.
