A Note On Flannery
For those of you who are interested, here's an idea of how former Bucknell Coach Pat Flannery is spending his free time now that he doesn't have to worry about recruiting or game planning or sideline pacing.
The guy had a pretty decent run while in charge of the Bison. Last year's 12-19 campaign was miserable, but in the three seasons prior to that, Bucknell went 73-23 and 38-4 in Patriot League play. In his 14 seasons with the Bison, Flannery's teams went 234-178 and won three regular season league titles.
Flannery might be best remembered for leading a pair of squads to NCAA tournament first round upsets. In 2005, the Bison knocked off Kansas, and in 2006, they defeated Arkansas. Also in 2006, Bucknell entered the top 25 for the first time in program history.
At the conclusion of last season, Flannery, 51, retired for an assortment of reasons, some of which were health-related. During a Jan. 30 game against Lehigh, Flannery suffered a fainting spell and remained on the bench for several minutes before returning to the locker room. He missed the next two games after a brief hospital stay.
