A couple of days ago, I put myself in Matt Painter’s shoes and concluded that money would be the only reason he could possibly leave.
SB Nation’s Purdue blog Hammers and Nails writes a letter to Matt Painter asking that he stays. It’s a letter many of us know too well: our favorite coach/player is contemplating leaving and we beg that he stays because we love him so much. All fans can empathize with the Purdue faithful right now.
The letter shows how much Purdue fans appreciate Matt Painter. These situations usually don’t turn out so well and Painter will be introduced as the next Missouri men’s basketball coaching within days. But I know this unbiased fan hopes Painter reads the letter and is back in West Lafayette this fall.
