Q: What made you consider coaching in Egypt?

A: As an African American the opportunity to return to the land of my ancestors and share my life’s passion was something I could not miss.

Q: What was your first impression of the MSA University Tigers squad?

A: Enthusiastic! 30 or more greeted my airplane in Cairo last December at 1:AM! This was impressive and humbling. 

Q: How did the team respond to your unorthodox coaching style?

A: Great Question. Their response was the key to our success… They Trusted Me, gave me the respect and dedication I needed to teach my “True Unity=True Empowerment” philosophy, and way of playing. By mid-season we simply referred to it as “TIGER BALL” 

Q: What do you think of the level of football present in Egypt and how does it compare to other countries?

A: The level of football is at the German GFL 3 level, with several players having GFL 1 talent

Q: How do you describe the maturation of the Tigers and where do you see them in the future?

A: We were a dropped pass in the endzone away from the Egyptian Bowl, and I would throw the ball to that receiver again because he will catch it 9 of 10 times. Thus next year’s goal can only be one thing… to FINISH!

Q: What does the Coach of the year award represent to you?

A: We all wish to be considered the best at our profession, no matter what your profession is. This Coach of The Year Award (considering all the nominees had German GFL coaching experience) is a prestigious award that represents the ultimate team award, as the teams improvement is a vital measuring stick.

Welcome Back Michael Vick

Written October 24, 2009 at 1:25 PM


Sports illustrated asked us laymen to share our opinion of Michael Vick’s reinstatement into the NFL and signing with the Philadelphia Eagles… This was my reply.



Well, as long as Michael Vick limits any future criminal activities to only abusing (Ben Roethlisberger – Rape accusation), or murdering (Donte’ Stallworth -murder) Humans; we can all rest assured that America won’t all gather together again in a frantic blood-lust demanding that he be imprisoned and stripped of the very profession he uses to feed his children.


This Blood-Lust was lead by P.E.T.A. , which apparently stands for Please Expose your T.s and A, from what I have seen of that organization’s attempt to bring attention to their cause.


I love dogs… Animals of all kinds.. And I do not condone any abuse on any level. But I love humans more.


I always felt that a just penalty for Mr. Vick’s previous involvement in the dog fighting ring would have been for him to fund the construction of a new Animal Hospital. This surely would have helped more animals and humans the likes. But placing an elite athlete in prison for two years of his prime for a crime against an Animal (while allowing others to blow animals’ brains all over our Forrest floors in the name of “hunting” ) is both hypocritical and as sick as the “sport” of dog fighting itself.


This I do know.. Tony Dungy doesn’t sign off on Mr Vick, if he did not believe in his character.


Welcome back Mr. Vick… Time to remind all just why you were the highest paid.
