We all know that Charlie Scott was treated like a field nigger, and Phil Ford was let into the house (but god forbid you let him actually coach)...
As for Withers?

When an Executive RETIRES
...... he gets a party and a watch. When an executive is FIRED he gets a security guard escort out of the building. At unc he gets a freakin’ game ball. KLUNK!
MEMO TO Everett Withers
..... Everett, Everett, Everett !! In 48 hours you (1) pissed in the punch bowl; then you went and (2) pissed on your bosses’ shoes. Two bad moves, EW.
You used up all your mulligans on the first tee. In any normal situation you would be standing on two banana peels the rest of the season. But in the Monty Python theme park known as The Flagship; you might get a car upgrade and be named Chair of AfrAmer Studies.
That Game Ball Stunt was excusable as post-game celebration exuberance. Then you pulled a Roy with that “I just felt like doing it” . Bro, you need 500 more wins and two rings to whistle that tune.
The Renners and The Davis’ are joined at the hip in a creepy coach – son – son – coach kabuki dance. You need to be above that stuff, Ev.
I (figuretively) pissed on a bosses’ shoes once; BUT I was 24 at the time. You’re pushing 50. I resisted the urge throughout my corporate career. Self-control Ev, self-control.
The two fatal errors rookie head coaches make are (1) inability to manage their peers, and (2) not understanding that every single thing they do or say is headline fodder. If unc's head coach picks his nose or scratchs his butt, someone will get a picture of him doing it. You dropped your trou and pushed your butt in your bosses’ faces. Every body in North carolina saw you do it.
Oh; your "friend" Butch and "his friend" BOTBob Winston are laughing their butts off over cocktails at carolina Country Club. Guess what Ev? You will NEVER be invited to join them. Ask "your friends" Butch & Bob why not!
Is Jimma Sexton shopping you and Butch as a package deal? Are you sure?
MEMO TO Chancellor Thorp
..... Mr Chancellor, you know that scene in Animal House where the Deltas put the dead horse in Dean Wormer’s office? Everett Withers & young Bryn just “dead horsed” your office because Everett “just felt like doing it”.
Harry Truman fired Douglas MacArthur for insubordination. Col. William Barrett Travis drew a line in the sand at The Alamo. Leaders don’t blink. Leaders lead.
Rookie coaches, young QBs and cats .... all have to be trained to use their litter boxes. That’s why God made rolled-up newspapers.
The barbarians are scaling the walls Holden. WhatChuGonnaDoAboutIt ?
