Coaching a struggling team in a postseason tournament is hard. But you know what's harder? Hearing from fans that you're going to be fired — in the middle of the game — and still managing to pull off an upset win.
"I know I had two guys behind the bench put their phone up and tell me, 'Hey, coach; you're gone.' So that was fun when you're trying to come back from an eight-point deficit," Tulane coach Ed Conroy said at his postgame press conference.
That was Tulane head coach Ed Conroy after his team's win over No. 2 seed Houston in the American Athletic Conference tournament Friday.
