The Bengals (2-9) head into Big Sky Conference play searching for answers, and they simply may not be coming. New interim head coach Deane Martin was frank when assessing his team's potential with con-ference play on the horizon.This is not exactly the ringing endorsement you would expect to hear from a coach. Obviously the team knows they are 2-9 and struggling, but the one thing you would expect to hear is confidence from your coach.
"This isn't the NBA, it's not like we can go out and make trades," he said.
I have no idea Martin's coaching style, or too much about him, so it's certainly not fair for me to read too much from a couple of quotes in an article, but if I was a player I would want to see a little more optimism. On the other hand, maybe Martin is just realistic.
Many thanks to a commenter for pointing out this article!
