If you read down in this article, you'll find that Matt Doherty, who is on the recruiting trail, now sports a "long white beard." The writer compares him to Santa Claus, which might be apt if Old Saint Nick cursed the kids when he gave out the goodies. Someone else posted that he is morphing into Kenny Rogers.
Any man who wants can grow a beard, but it's a weird option for a college basketball coach, where the emphasis is on youth and being youthful. Go get 'em grandpa!
