We started having mandatory parents/players meetings in the 1990’s after I heard Marquette Coach Al McGuire speak at a clinic. He asked how many of us had problems with parents, and almost everyone raised their hand. He asked how many of us had a meeting with the parents before the season explaining YOUR expectations for THEIR behavior. No one raised their hand. Coach McGuire said, "I do not feel sorry for any of you." We have had a meeting every year since that clinic.
