See ya later, Melvin

Let's all pause for a moment out of respect for the coaching career of Grambling's Melvin Spears.

The firing of Spears on Monday came as little surprise to some GSU alumni who feel the man should have never gotten the job in the first place. Just after he was hired, it was discovered that the Master's degree Spears claimed he had, according to his resume, was not quite complete. Spears flew to Arizona and mysteriously came back with a Master's degree, dated after he was hired. He kept his job, but didn't get off on the right foot.

Winning cures a lot of ills, and Spears did that last year. But his 2006 season, which ended with a loss to Southern, apparently was enough for GSU President Horace Judson to send him packing.

That should be a positive move for Grambling.
