Coach resigns after hitting student timekeeper

Apparently, the coaches are fighting back.

Garry Gallimore, a coach with the men’s basketball team at St. Francis Xavier University, resigned on Thursday after he hit the timekeeper.

Apparently, the team called a timeout that wasn’t recognized in a game against Cape Breton University. Gallimore got angry, and hit the guy, who happened to be a student at the school.

This was the first season for Gallimore as an assistant coach after four years as a player.

He resigned, saying that striking an official has no place in sports.

While what he did was wrong, he made the right move in resigning. That shows maturity, and maybe in a couple of years, he’ll be ready to come back to and be a coach. And if realizes officials need and deserve respect, then he’ll probably be a pretty good coach.

But for now, he’s not ready, and he proved that.
