With the NFL playoffs, NCAA college basketball and NBA in full swing, it’s always fun to take a look at some of the funniest coaching tirades. One of the other things that sparked my interest in tirades is the latest one, from Southern Illinois’ Barry Hinson. Hinson blew up after his team lost several games and shot poorly. I ranked them in no particular order, but ranked coaches with more than one tirade higher. My favorite tirade has to be Lasorda’s rant about Kurt Bevacqua….In my next blog post, I’ll take a look at famous player tirades.
